Response to COVID19

March 18, 2020

We made the difficult but necessary decision to close down operations until further notice. The health and safety of our members, employees and visitors is of paramount importance. We recommend you follow the World Health Organization, the CDC and Global Workspace Association (GWA) for up-to-date information. We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation and will continue to provide helpful information.

 

The health and safety of our employees, members and visitors is of paramount importance. Therefore, we have implemented the following procedures:

 

We are in the process of installing extra hand sanitizers throughout our spaces (to the best of our ability to understand shortages are occurring) and are encouraging members to use them frequently.

 

  • In addition to our normal cleaning procedures, we have instituted additional cleaning and disinfecting of our space at frequent intervals.
  • We are asking our members to be more cognizant of wiping down surfaces as they use them.
  • We will no longer be offering tours for our guests until further notice.
  • We are following the CDC protocol and practicing social distancing and minimizing handshaking.
  • We are asking members and staff that are sick to remain home.
