Health and Safety Policy
To our valued members and guests: Your health and safety is our top priority.
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-bacterial 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 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 afterward. (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. Please! Not only is this a common courtesy, but it will also 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.
Visitors and members of The Works may opt to wear a mask inside our workspace. Mask are not mandatory. We recommend that members and visitors practice physical distancing, stay home when sick, wash their hands frequently AND roll up their sleeve and get the vaccine.
