Health & Safety Guidelines
To our Stacks Co. Community,
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.
Stacks Co. Community Pledge
All members will be required to agree to a community pledge indicating their adherence to guidelines within the space as well as official guidelines when not in the space. They’ll agree that they will not enter the space if they have any symptoms, have had exposure, or have potentially had exposure to the virus.
As a fellow Stacks Co. Closed Community Member you have committed to our Community Pledge which ensures you are self- screening before entering the space.
In order to control the flow of traffic throughout the space we have implemented new changes to our space layout.
The main level is primarily reserved for Full-Stack members and others with private office access
Members may enter through the exterior parking lot door and cut through to the front interior door.
We will temporarily keep the back stairwell entrance to Spacious as exit only.
We are implementing enhanced cleaning procedures to protect our Closed Community Members. These include;
Cleaning and disinfecting shared surfaces more regularly.
Providing hand sanitizer stations.
Providing disinfectant wipes for members to wipe down surfaces used.
All HVAC filters feeding Stacks Co. Spaces have been upgraded and we have scheduled more frequent filter replacements.
HEPA air purifiers are running at all times in the common spaces.
We have set up sanitizing stations to promote healthy habits and added signage with reminders of our current policies throughout the building.
Please follow these important guidelines about hygiene while at Stacks Co.:
Wash your hands frequently and properly. 20 seconds is the minimum recommended to be considered effective.
Use your arm or sleeve when coughing or sneezing, not your hands, and use hand sanitizer regularly.
Please dispose of tissues immediately and properly.
Refrain from touching your nose or mouth.
Disinfect common area surfaced you have recently used.
Face Mask Policy
Masks are required while moving through the common spaces inside and when interacting with others face to face.
You must ensure a proper fitting mask (covering above nose and below chin).
Masks can be removed while at your desks or in private offices and meeting rooms.
Updated Layout & Desk Changes
In addition to private offices, only 15 desks will be spread throughout both levels of the space.
Other members are prohibited from touching or borrowing items on another member’s desks without proper permission and sanitization.
Meeting Room Policy
We have reduced meeting room capacities to the following:
Rollo - 2
Treff - 5
The Martin Room will no longer be used as a meeting room.
Guest access is limited to upstairs meeting rooms bookings only.
Guests are not permitted on the main level or ground floor.
Members will make guests aware of the Stacks Co. Health & Safety Guidelines and ensure they follow all procedures while in the space.
No events will occur at any time until further notice.
We strongly encourage members to keep the recommended safe distance. If you need to move a table around, or change seats, feel free to do so.
Capacity limited to one person at a time.
All surfaces touched must be wiped down after use.
Capacity limited to one person at a time unless assistance is needed.
If someone in our Stacks Co. Community tests positive, members will be notified immediately via email and phone call, and the space will be closed for 10 days.
In the event stay at home orders are put back in place, the space will be closed and membership fees will not be collected.
Thank you for putting the health and safety of our 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!
