New Covid-19 Policies

Problem: CDC Guidance for Covid-19 has come out

Solution: Apply new Covid-19 rules by recommended masks but not policing their usage, open class limits, and start open tours. Updated policy below:

Before coming to the space

  • If you are feeling sick do not come to the space
  • Take your temperature before leaving home. If it is 99 or greater, do not come to the space
  • If you have had a temperature of 99 or greater in the last 48 hours do not come to the space
  • Pack your own PPE and disinfectant wipes/cleaning products for use while at the space. DMS will not be providing these for personal use

Facemasks

Masks, while no longer required for members, are highly recommended both inside the space and while on the grounds. This includes the front entrance patio areas and the ramps, dumpsters and bay door areas.

In addition:

  • Teachers may require masks to be worn by all students
  • Teachers and students must still follow all posted rules/signage within a given work or committee area

Social Distancing

Social Distancing, while no longer required for members, is highly recommended both inside the space and while on the grounds. This includes the front entrance patio areas and the ramps, dumpsters and bay door areas.

In addition:

  • Teachers may require social distancing from all students
  • Teachers and students must still follow all posted rules/signage within a given work or committee area

Things the Makerspace will not supply during the current COVID-19 restriction period

  • Project storage and the ice machine in the galley will remain closed until we have volunteers and a plan to manage them.
  • Disinfectant wipes/cleaning products

Contractors and service people

All contractors and vendors will be required to wear a mask when visiting or working at the space.

Tours

Group, individual, and open tours are now re-opened at the DMS. Tours will be held from 10am - 2pm on Saturdays. Masks are required for Saturday group tour participants. One-on-one tour guides may require masks if desired.

Enforcement of rules

All members are expected to continue our ethos of “Be Excellent to Each Other”. This includes mask wearing and social distancing. Harassment of members/guests because of their masking choices is in direct violation of our Anti-Harassment Policy. Deliberately preventing others from social distancing is also a violation of the Anti-Harassment Policy. If anyone feels that they have been subjected to harassment, please contact a DMS Officer or a Director.

Relevance: Relax restrictions to allow further opening of the space.
