COVID-19 Entry Policy and Procedures

The purpose of this guide is to reduce COVID-19 exposure and transmission for all MakeIt Members, their guests, and their families.  

Your Role: You are an integral and active part of the safety process and it only works when everyone participates. Please protect yourself, your families, and especially those around you and their families.  It may seem like a lot of rules but this is very important not just for your own health but for other members who may be more at risk.

DO NOT COME To Make it Labs if you:
  • live with someone who is High Risk
  • may have been exposed to COVID-19
  • have any COVID-19 or Flu symptoms 
  • have been tested positive for COVID-19, or are awaiting a COVID-19 test result
  • Are experiencing any respiratory symptoms including a fever, runny nose, sore throat, cough, or shortness of breath.
  • Are experiencing any new muscle aches or chills.
  • Experienced any new change in your sense of taste or smell.
  • If your temperature is above 100.0 degrees F
Before Entering MakeIt labs
Wear an approved mask at all times. If you have no mask, ask before arriving. 

Entering
  1. Put your mask on (N95, KN95, surgical mask) BEFORE you enter 
  2. Sign in at the Self Screening Kiosk with your ID every time you visit. It includes screening questions and photographs for contact tracing.  If you are the first person to arrive and the alarm is on, disable the alarm and then come back to the kiosk.
  3. Enter through the front door and proceed to the garage sink or ADA bathroom. 
  4. Immediately wash your hands upon entry.
  5. Leave the bathroom door open so you do not touch the door or door handle.
  6. Maintain as much distance as possible from others.
  7. Wash down any work surfaces/tools etc that you plan to use (soap and water).
  8. Avoid touching your face.
  9. Prove you have read this document (The codeword is G-covid-19)
Before you leave Make it labs
  • Clean your work area and return any tools. 
  • Wash down any work surfaces/tools etc that you used (soap and water).
  • Wash your hands before exit. 
  • Do not touch anything including door knobs on the way out.
Masks
  • Preferred N95 or KN95 (WITHOUT one way “flapper” exhaust  valve). If you have a mask with an exhaust valve, please note that these masks DO NOT prevent the spread of COVID-19 from your breath. Please find another mask style or modify it to disable the valve or add filtration
  • Surgical masks are acceptable.
  • Masks must be worn as designed, covering your mouth and nose with a tight fit.
  • Because there is so much variation in different designs and materials other masks are not allowed.
  • Every member will get one free KN95 mask. Maintain that mask according to CDC guidelines https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/hcwcontrols/recommendedguidanceextuse.html
  • Additional masks are available in the vending machine for a nominal fee
