Covid protocols & waiver

Updated 07.28.20 at 12:49 PST

Covid-19 Operating Protocols:

For the safety of everyone using the makerspace, the following have been added to our existing operating procedures.

All commonly shared tools will be sanitized at the end of the day, including computers, control panels, laptops, and work surfaces.

Face shields will be sanitized and kept by the door.

HEPA filters will be run while the space is occupied, and cross ventilation may be provided to increase airflow as needed.

Members, volunteers, and staff who exhibit symptoms must go home immediately, and any areas or tools they used will be sanitized.

Covid-19 waiver:

Anyone entering the makerspace must agree to the following Covid-19 hygiene protocols below.  We will ask anyone not in compliance with these protocols to leave.

Face Masks

I will put on a face mask before arrival.  My mask will fit well (not requiring constant adjustment).

I will wear a mask that passes the candle test: I should not be able to blow out a candle flame from 6 inches away.

If I need to take off my mask or eat, I will use the balcony, parking lot, or an unoccupied room down the balcony.

If I touch my mask, I will use hand sanitizer to sterilize my hands immediately.  If I notice someone else touching their mask, I will politely offer hand sanitizer to them.


I will wash my hands for 20 seconds before entering the space.

I will wash my hands regularly, especially on returning from a break/lunch.


Before entry, I will confirm that I have a normal temperature below 100.4 degrees, and no symptoms.

If I exhibit symptoms, I will go home immediately.

Social distancing

I will maintain a minimum six-foot distance from other people at all times.

I will abide by the following number of people allowed per room:

  • Classroom: 5
  • Fabrication Room: 4
  • Woodshop: 2

If more than two people are working in a room, I will use face shields in addition to face masks.

Tool sanitization

After each use, I will sanitize any tools and equipment I touched by spraying with rubbing alcohol before putting them away.

Electronic signature

I have reviewed and will comply with the Covid-19 procedures described above.
