COVID 19 Health and Saftey Protocols

There are many new ways of working together in our new COVID reality and we have adopted and integrated the best practices to get you safe but also allow for an enjoyable experience.

We have a multi-faceted approach – SFS – Spaces, Faces, and Surfaces.

SPACES

We now limit our classes to eight students unless otherwise indicated.  This means that each workbench is a minimum of 10 – 15 feet away from the next bench.    Each bench also has its own dedicated set of handtools.  We also have spread our benches out into “hubs” and each hub has a dedicated set of tools that are not shared across groups.  During group time such as demonstrations and lunchtimes, there is plenty of room to spread out and maintain social distance.  We have multiple locations for relax and take a break such as the courtyard and the breakroom, but students can also eat lunch at their benches if they choose to do so.

 

FACES

We require all students to wear masks while in class.  Please plan on wearing one on arrival.

We also do temperature checks each morning.  Please be prepared to not enter class if your temperature is above 98.9.  We require that you use hand sanitizer or hand wash on arrival, at 10:30, 1 pm and 2:30 pm.   Every bench has its own hand sanitizer and there are additional dispensers around the workshop.

 

SURFACES

All knobs, switches, surfaces, tool handles, bathrooms, door handles are wiped down multiple times throughout the day.
