TheSpace2 and our approach to the pandemic

TheSpace2 and our approach to the pandemic

TheSpace2 takes the safety of its visitors, students, and volunteers very seriously.
In this little update, we want to inform you all what we are doing and what you can do to keep TheSpace2 a safe environment.

Some information:

Not every sneeze or cough is caused by the virus. And, due to an earlier start to the allergy season (yay climate change!) allergies are picking up.
The disease covid-19 caused by the novel corona virus differs from allergies in very specific ways:
Covid-19 causes fever, chills, body ache, cough, difficulty breathing, and pneumonia, but should NOT cause nasal congestion or itchy eyes.
Allergies cause nasal congestion, itchy eyes, and sneezing, but should NOT cause difficulty breathing, fever, chills or body aches.

What we do:

  • At this time, all programming at TheSpace2 is closed for the time being. We will reevaluate if the situation warrants it. If things change, we will put announcements on all our media

    Upon re-opening in the hopefully not too far future:

  • We have provided hand sanitizer and unscented hand soap, as well as single use paper towels in the bathroom. Please wash your hands thoroughly and frequently.
  • If someone shows up with symptoms, we reserve the right to send them home and close the day’s event immediately.
  • We keep TheSpace2 as clean as possible.
  • We will not tolerate any racist bullshit, generally or in the context of origin and spread of the virus.

What you can do:

  • If you feel sick, please stay at home. This is not only for your safety but for the safety of everyone else.
  • When you come in, before you touch anything, take a drop of the hand sanitizer and clean your hands.
  • If you experience symptoms, get checked out. Call ahead to your GP or clinic so that they can receive you directly into an exam room and avoid sitting in a crowded waiting room.
