We are reopening on Monday, Oct. 5th in a similar capacity to our June reopening with these changes under state guidelines. We've reproduced the above infographic for accessibility reasons and our full guidelines for space use below.

These include the following updates and changes:

Our core educational experience in a socially-distanced format. This format includes time to discuss your individual project. Sign-up at hackerlab.org/one-on-one

Makerspace Guidelines

Book resources ahead when possible. Look for signs showing how many makers can be allowed per area. Stay home if you feel sick. Visit this blog post which can be found at hackerlab.org/covid19.

Safety is our #1 priority. Thank you to our community members for being part of Team Hacker Lab and for following these guidelines. Have questions? Please reach out to us at [email protected].

Our full Hacker Lab guidelines for reopening are noted here:
  • We are only holding one-on-ones classes in-person. All other events are held virtually until it is safe and responsible to resume them;

  • We are limiting Hacker Lab facility access to members-only for essential business*

  • We are not allowing any non-members  to enter the facilities;

  • We will be working with members on a case-by-case basis to address any concerns regarding their membership status, or any one-on-one sessions that were scheduled for the near future.  Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions or concerns;

  • Masks are required while in the facility in any of the facility’s open spaces.  This includes the coworking and makerspace.

  • Do not come into the Lab unless it is essential for your business:

    • Only those performing essential duties that cannot be performed by telecommuting should physically come to the Lab and keep their onsite time to an absolute minimum.

  • Do not come into the Lab if you have a cough, fever, or feel sick in the past 14 days.

  • All members must maintain a safe social distance from others at all times while at the facility;

  • Avoid handshakes, high fives, fist bumps, cover any coughs, and keep a healthy distance between other individuals.

  • You must wash your hands at least every 3 hours with warm soap and water, and after any interaction with others or surfaces that others may have touched.

    • We're disinfecting common surfaces multiple times a day.

    • Please help us by wiping down any space or equipment you use when done.

    • Please do not bring in shared or communal food/drinks for the duration, as well as communal cups, plates, bowls, & utensils.  We will be suspending coffee service as well.  While we love the sharing atmosphere present, shared consumables pose too much of a risk at this time

  • We are actively monitoring the situation and will send updates as additional information becomes available.
    If you’re a member who needs a special accommodation in equipment or training for an essential business purpose, please reach out to [email protected].
    The new directives can be found below.  We highly encourage everybody to read and follow these directives.

Your support during this time is essential for the long-term success of Hacker Lab.  We are a small start-up, and this is going to be a very difficult storm for us to weather. We are doing everything we can to do right by our community, our employees, and to survive this unprecedented situation.

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to reach out to us by emailing  [email protected].

We are confident that together, as a community we will make it through this.  While we feel the economic cinching, it is imperative that we all do our part to help stop the spread of this virus.
