COVID-19 Health and Safety Policy
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 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 have 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 afterwards. (In case you forgot.)
Beverages, like coffee and water, will be available as single-use only.
NOTICE OF EXPOSURE
We are asking all employees, members and guests who are displaying even mild flu-like symptoms, including fever, cough and cold to stay home.
Please notify our staff if you are diagnosed with COVID-19 and have used our space in the past 30 days.
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 do not plan to return to work until you’ve been cleared and are no longer sick.
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.
Finally, in the event that we are notified that any person that has used our space recently is diagnosed with COVID-19, immediate notice will be given to all members and staff.
Thank you for putting the health and safety of our employees, members, guests and local community first! Thank you for helping continue to keep our welcoming community healthy and safe!
