Coronavirus Hamptons Updates

Keep checking back for more.

With the safety of all East Enders in mind—from our seniors to our newborns—Hamptons businesses and organizations have begun postponing events, cancelling programming and closing their doors for the month of March to stop the spread of COVID-19. Hopefully by April, the East End will be back to its lively self, but until then—wash your hands, stop touching your face and don’t panic.
