Covid Protocols at the Lacey MakerSpace
Lacey MakerSpace is committed to adhering to WA state and CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19 safety to ensure the safety of our members and staff, and our community.
Members are expected to comply with the information provided on this page.
As protocols are subject to change along with state and local requirements, please review this page frequently for updates.
We are following the guidance of Saint Martin's University's COVID-19 polices, rules, and suggestions. That information can be found here: https://www.stmartin.edu/policies/coronavirus
We are no longer requiring masks but we welcome anyone who chooses to wear one. Thank you!
Although the state is moving to lift indoor masking mandates March 12, we are aligning with the policies at Saint Martin’s University to maintain our indoor masking requirements a bit longer. We have staff and family members that are among the vulnerable population, and as our classes sometimes require folks to work within close proximity at times, we feel it is in everyone’s best interest to stay masked up for the time being. Safety is our top priority in every aspect, and we thank you for supporting our decision to wait just a bit longer to lift indoor masking measures.
We look forward to seeing your smiles soon!
We are open to members during standard membership access times and accepting new members.
Classes, tours and other events are scheduled regularly and we’re keeping class sizes small to maximize social distancing measures.
Current Covid19 Safety Policies
- Masks are optional.
- Please still be mindful and practice social distancing guidelines whenever possible while in our facility.
- Used communal PPE (Eye and ear protection, face shields, welding hoods, etc.) should be placed in the "PPE Quarantine Bins" to be sanitized by staff before reuse. Members are welcome to bring your own PPE if you prefer.
- Please wash your hands frequently and/or use hand sanitizer placed around the shop.
CONTACT TRACING AND EXPOSURE INCIDENT NOTIFICATION:
As a practice, members should already swipe their key card whenever entering or exiting the building. In the event we are informed of a potential exposure incident, we can trace who was in the space during the window of exposure and will notify members via email. All members will be emailed generally notifying them of any exposure incidents and/or closures associated with an exposure incident.
Community members coming to the Lacey MakerSpace for a class, tour, or other event must sign a waiver upon their first visit. We welcome you to continue to do your own COVID19 Health Check. Individuals in the space at the time of a potential exposure incident will be notified via email immediately.
*Please know we strive to maintain confidentiality, privacy, and anonymity in every aspect of our business and record keeping.
