I. Member/Staff/Guest Personal Hygiene Guidelines
Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
○ 20 seconds is about the same amount of time it takes to say the alphabet, sing “Happy Birthday” twice or the full chorus of these popular songs:
“ Toxic” byBritneySpears
“ Truth Hurts” byLizzo
“ Jolene ” by Dolly Parton
Wash your hands especially during these key times when you are likely to encounter and spread germs:
○ Before, during, and after food prep.
○ Before eating
○ Before and after treating a cut or other wound
○ After using the restroom
○ After changing diapers or helping a child in the restroom
○ After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing
○ After touching an animal, or touching pet food or pet waste
○ After touching garbage
○ After you have been in a public place and/or touched an item/surface
that may be frequently touched by others (e.g. door handles, tables, gas
pumps, shopping carts, or electronic cashier registers/screens, etc.)
○ Before touching your eyes, nose, or mouth because that’s how germs
enter our bodies.
● If you can’t wash with soap and water, reach for some hand sanitizer. Coronavirus is killed by alcohol-based hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol. Make sure to use enough so that it covers all the surfaces on your hands. Rub until your hands feel dry, which should take about 20 seconds.
Additional health safety tips:
● Wear protective face coverings at all times if it does not interfere with your ability to effectively complete responsibilities.
● Do not share headsets or other items that are used near the mouth or nose.
● Use your sleeve or a piece of fabric to provide a barrier between your skin and the handle to open doors if you are not able to push open with your body or arm.
● Since it’s safest to avoid any person-to-person contact whatsoever, leave handshakes, hugs, high-fives, or touch greeting behind.
● Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing, or exhibiting cold or flu-like symptoms.
● Make sure you follow good respiratory hygiene. Cover mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze. Dispose of the used tissue immediately.
● Stay home if you feel unwell.
Alternative Work Hours / Work at night:

Not only would you benefit from a smoother, quicker commute, and fewer disruptions, but since many coworking members maintain a regular daytime schedule, you’ll be safer from illness by being exposed to fewer germs.
