ST. LOUIS — The International Institute of St. Louis, which works with refugees and immigrants, is reducing hours at its Tower Grove East campus as staff begin working from home.

The hours at the International Institute on Arsenal Street have been changed to 8:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. Only assigned staff will be allowed to enter and the doors will be locked to the general public.

All English classes, volunteer opportunities and community events are cancelled. Client appointments will be through phone or teleconference, and bi-lingual interpreters will carry cell phones so clients can make contact if necessary. A receptionist at the main number, 314-773-9090, will be able to direct calls during work hours.

Staff are sharing updates with clients on actions and news related to the new coronavirus pandemic. People who need translations can call the phone numbers at these links: Arabic, Farsi, Kinyarwanda, Nepali, Pashto, Swahili, and Spanish.
