Coronavirus lockdown made one thing clear: we’ll never take the office for granted again. We’re so glad to have our doors open again and are doing everything we can to take the stress out of going back to the office, so you can relax and get work done.

Here’s what we’ve done and are doing to keep you as safe as possible:

Bioprotect surface protectant was applied May 17th to all our high touch surfaces (door handles, coffee machine buttons, etc.) and on all our individual desks. It is reapplied every 90 days and is tested every 30 days to make sure it’s still keeping things clean. We’re also sanitizing common areas, spark desks, and high touch surfaces daily with a disinfectant, as an extra precaution.

Meeting rooms are being sanitized between all bookings. New room capacities are posted in each of our meeting rooms so that guests can comply with social distancing guidelines. We’re currently recommending no more than six people in the Fishbowl at a time, and no more than two people in Flicker at a time, unless guests have been isolating together.

Bioprotect hand sanitizer is provided at the entrance. It has the same nano-spike technology as the surface protectant and stays active on the hands for up to 6 hours, even through hand washings. We also have some alcohol based hand sanitizer available, if that’s your preference.

Disposable cups and mugs are provided at the water dispenser and coffee machine, if that’s your preference. Disposable gloves are also provided at our coffee machine and in the kitchen.

We’ve spaced our spark desks six feet apart and have added desk dividers. Desks are being sanitized between use.

We’re requiring that all guests wear face masks in FireWorks’ common areas.

We recognize that we need everyone’s help and participation to keep our community safe. Along those lines, here’s what we’re asking from you:

Please do not come to FireWorks if you:

  • Have experienced any of the following symptoms in the last 14 days: cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, new loss of taste or smell
  • Have been diagnosed with COVID-19
  • Have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days
  • Have traveled internationally within the last 14 days

Apply Bioprotect hand sanitizer when you enter, and every 6 hours thereafter that you are in the space.

Practice regular and frequent hand washing.

Reserve meeting rooms in advance, so our staff knows when to sanitize between bookings.

Maintain 6+ feet of distance from other members at all times, and always respect other people’s boundaries.

Thanks so much for your support and cooperation as we work hard to make FireWorks a safe place for everyone to work.
