We are a covid safe facility. Here is how we keep it safe.
AIR: Our HVAC system draws about 80% of its air from a filtered fresh air intake. Very little air is recirculated. We are running two medical grade HEPA air filters that exchange the air in the quiet space three times an hour. The phone-booths have a constant flow of air coming in and venting out. The bathroom has air venting out constantly.
HANDS: Everyone washes or sanitizes their hands upon arrival. We have hand sanitizer stations throughout the space as well as soap in the kitchen and bathrooms.
MASKS: Masks are worn at all times. However, pulling down your mask to take a drink is fine.
SURFACES: Writers are asked to disinfect their desks when they are finished working. Wipes provided. In addition we disinfect common touch surfaces 1 to 3 times a day depending on use of the space.
LOUNGE: The lounge is closed for eating but can be used to heat up food to be eaten on the deck. The lounge is still available for brief distanced social encounters.
CAPACITY: We are limiting the number of writers in the space to 18. We now have a desk scheduling app that writers use to reserve a desk before coming to the space. The scheduling system fulfills the NYS requirement to maintain a log of who was at the space and when.
