The following policies and procedures will be implemented in order to ensure the safety and well-being of Local Works’ staff, coworkers and visitors. Any questions may be directed to Steve.

  • Social Distancing
    • As necessary, occupancy will be limited to 50% and every other seat at communal coworking tables is to remain empty. Congregating in any area will be discouraged.
  • Personal Hygiene
    • Coworkers are encouraged to make use of on-site, easily-accessible hand sanitizer, and hand soap in bathrooms will be regularly re-filled as necessary.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
    • Coworkers are asked to wear face masks at all times while in the building, except when silently seated at desks or working in private offices. Masks will be provided for anyone on-site who does not have one.
  • Cleaning and Disinfecting
    • All common areas, including but not limited to bathrooms, workspaces, kitchen area, phone booths, and conference rooms will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized by janitorial services. Conference rooms will be sanitized in between uses.
  • Engineering Controls
    • From the modern HVAC system to ease and accessibility of entry and egress, our building and space comply with all applicable codes and regulations. Local Works is well-ventilated inside, and we offer an outdoor covered patio with well-spaced seating.
  • Incident Reporting
    • If it is made known that a staff member or coworker has tested positive for COVID-19, the incident will be recorded and precautions taken to safeguard the rest of the Local Works community.
  • Food & Beverage
    • All shared appliances, including but not limited to the coffee maker, refrigerator, and microwave will be regularly cleaned and sanitized.  Coworkers are encouraged to use their own mugs and personal cutlery.  Shared cutlery and drinkware is thoroughly cleaned in a modern dishwasher after each use.  The kitchen sink faucet employs contactless technology.
