COVID-19 Entry Policy and Procedures
COVID-19 ENTRY PROTOCOLS ARE NO LONGER IN EFFECT. updated 03/01/2022
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
Reservations are required for using the automotive lift
Reservations of the laser area are highly recommended.
A video is available that will walk you through the access process.
Learn the most by using both!
Wear an approved mask at all times. If you have no mask, ask before arriving.
Put your mask on (N95, KN95, surgical mask) BEFORE you enter
Enter and proceed to the garage sink or ADA bathroom (disable the alarm if needed)
Immediately wash your hands upon entry.
Leave the bathroom door open so you do not touch the door or door handle.
Maintain as much distance as possible from others.
Wash down any work surfaces/tools etc that you plan to use (soap and water).
Avoid touching your face.
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.
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.
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.

What we are doing at MakeIt
The filters in the HVAC system have been upgraded in their abilities.
We have installed UVC light in the HVAC filtering to kill viruses, microbes, and maybe help with mold.
Cleaning solutions and paper towels are distributed in the different resource areas to make it easy to clean and sanitize for every visit.
We have created these procedures, screening systems, and reservation systems to provide the best conditions to keep all of us safe.
We have PPE in the vending machine for purchase.
