ThriveCo has taken a number of precautions to help try to prevent the spread of COVID-19. These include, but are not limited, to the following:
Temporary space changes
Spacing out and paring down seating at tables/workstations in the coworking space and meeting rooms to allow for adequate social distancing
Posting signs throughout the space with guidance on social distancing, masking and handwashing
Stocking common areas + meeting rooms with EPA approved disinfectant spray + paper towels so members can disinfect any workstations or touched surfaces after they and their employees, contractors, visitors and guests use the space
Providing tissues, no-touch trashcans, soap, water, and hand sanitizer (as available for ThriveCo to purchase)
Screening employees for symptoms daily, providing masks to employees to be worn at ThriveCo if needed
Increased cleaning of high-touch surfaces with EPA approved disinfectants
Effective February 28th, 2022 per the county order, masks are no longer required in indoor public places. The county is still recommending masks be worn in “crowded areas with poor ventilation.” According to CDC guidelines, “People may choose to mask at any time. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.”
Per the terms of their membership agreements, members have the right to decide if and when they come to ThriveCo. When they choose to come to ThriveCo, all members (regardless of Membership Type) and their employees, contractors, visitors and guests are required to abide by the following procedures:
Self-Monitor their symptoms. Each time that a member or their employee, contractor, visitor or guest plans to come to ThriveCo, they must do the following prior to arriving at ThriveCo:
Check their temperature
Consider whether they have any of the following symptoms:
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Fever or chills
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
Consider if they have had close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 10 days.
If the member, their employee, contractor or visitor has a temperature of 100.4°F (38°C) or above, has any of the above symptoms, or has been in close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 10 days, they may not enter ThriveCo. If the member who has had close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 10 days and is fully vaccinated themselves, they you do not need to stay away from others or get tested unless they have symptoms.
If any member, their employee, contractor, guest or visitor develops any symptoms while at ThriveCo, they must immediately leave ThriveCo, and contact their healthcare provider for additional guidance. This individual must not return to ThriveCo until they have met the CDC’s criteria to discontinue home isolation or they have been cleared to return by their healthcare provider.
Notify ThriveCo staff of risk. Members must notify a ThriveCo staff member in writing right away if they or anyone they have brought to ThriveCo (employees, contractors, visitors or guests) test positive for COVID and have been onsite at ThriveCo in the preceding 10 days. In the event that this occurs, we will notify our members who may have been in close contact with that individual at ThriveCo (and will withhold the name of the member who came forward for privacy reasons). We will then work with the local health department to see what steps need to be taken to allow adequate time for safe cleaning and disinfecting of the infected areas.
Wear a mask if needed. Effective February 28th, 2022 per the county order, masks are no longer required in indoor public places. The county is still recommending masks be worn in “crowded areas with poor ventilation.” According to CDC guidelines, “People may choose to mask at any time. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.”
Disinfect touched surfaces. Members are asked to sanitize and disinfect their and their employees, contractors, visitors and guests’ workstations and touched surfaces (door knobs, handles, light switches, tables, etc.) after use.
Inform visitors of policies. Per our membership agreement and county guidance, members must inform their employees, contractors, visitors and guests of our procedures in advance of their visit to diffuse any potential misunderstandings.
Allow time for disinfecting meeting rooms. Members and their employees and contractors must allow adequate time within your meeting room bookings to use disinfectant spray and paper towels to wipe down the work stations and touched surfaces in the room after you and your guests and before the next reservation on the calendar.
Bring own dishes and utensils. Members and their employees, contractors, visitors or guests who wish to eat while at ThriveCo are asked to bring dishes and utensils from home and keep them at their workspace instead of in the kitchen, taking them home each day for cleaning.
