To our valued Ugather Cowork 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 reading this and supporting our efforts!
Following recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) 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-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 are still available.
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 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.*****
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 and please STAY HOME. Please do not plan to return to work until you’ve been cleared and are no longer sick.
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 and 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 WHO and CDC and will provide updates as needed. In the meantime, thank you for helping continue to keep our welcoming community healthy and safe!
