Health and Safety Policy
We are temporarily closed to the public. All members still have keyless entry access, but we are not booking meeting rooms at this time. If you are interested in a coworking membership or a private office, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
To our valued members and guests:
Your health and safety is our top priority. Therefore as we follow the quickly developing environment around Coronavirus (COVID-19) we are implementing new policies to help us prevent the spread of the virus and limit the impact on our community. Thank you for joining us in taking action to keep our community healthy and safe!
Following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Arizona Department of Health Services, and Maricopa County Health Department, we are implementing the following enhanced health and safety policies.
We are implementing enhanced cleaning procedures in our locations to protect our employees, members and guests. These include;
Cleaning shared surfaces regularly with disinfectant.
Providing hand sanitizer and anti-viral wipes.
Asking our members and guests to help sanitize common surfaces that you have used.
Please follow these important guidelines about hygiene:
Wash your hands frequently and properly. A guide can be found here: www.who.int/gpsc/clean_hands_protection
Use a tissue, your arm, or sleeve when coughing or sneezing, not your hands, and use hand sanitizer regularly. Wash your hands. (It’s a theme.)
Please dispose of tissues immediately and wash hands or use sanitizer any time you have used tissues. (There’s that hand-washing again!)
Refrain from touching your nose or mouth. If you do, please wash your hands afterwards. (In case you forgot.)
We will be limiting shared kitchen services including coffee, refreshment and snack service as well as limiting the use of reusable utensils and drinkware during this time. Single use items may still be served as available in the kitchen but we apologize for any inconvenience this limited service may have.
If You Are Sick
For the safety of our coworkers and community, we are asking members who are displaying even mild flu-like symptoms, including fever, cough and cold to stay home. Not only is this common courtesy, it will help you recover more quickly and keep your immune system strong.
Please notify our staff if you are diagnosed with COVID-19 and have used our space in the past 30 days.
Please notify our staff if you have been in contact with someone who tested positive with COVID-19 in the past 30 days.
If You Have Traveled
For our employees, members and guests. If you have recently traveled to high-risk areas (China, Italy and other areas as updated by the CDC), they are being asked to self-quarantine for 14 days, even if they show no symptoms, to monitor for any symptoms of illness. This may be extended to those who have traveled to other areas where COVID-19 is spreading.
If you have recently traveled internationally or may have been exposed to people traveling from affected areas, please monitor yourself.
If you are showing any symptoms of illness we ask you to check with your healthcare provider. Please wait until you have tested negative, or 48 hours symptom-free.
We are strongly encouraging members and guests to avoid congregating in our common spaces and will try to accommodate any members or guests who ask to work or meet in isolation. Gatherings of more than 10 people in one room is prohibited.
Finally, we have policies in place and will communicate further to implement closures and further cleaning protocols if we are notified that any person that has used our space recently is diagnosed with COVID-19.
Thank you for putting the health and safety of our employees, members, guests and local community first! We are closely following the recommendations by the CDC and local health officials and will provide updates as needed. In the meantime, thank you for helping continue to keep our welcoming community healthy and safe!
