OUR JANITORIAL STAFF WILL CONTINUE THEIR EFFORTS TO MAINTAIN A CLEAN AND SANITIZED SPACE. WE HAVE ALSO TAKEN EXTRA MEASURES TO REDUCE THE SPREAD OF GERMS BY MAKING OUR CLEANING SCHEDULES MORE FREQUENT. WHILE THE SPACE IS PARTIALLY OPEN WE WILL BE DOING A COMPLETE CLEAN OF ALL COMMON AREAS IN THE SPACE AT A MINIMUM OF THREE TIMES DAILY MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY. IF YOU RENT AN OFFICE OR A DEDICATED DESK, WE’RE OFFERING A DEEP CLEANING SERVICE DURING THIS TIME. PLEASE SEND US AN EMAIL TO INFO@AMHERSTWORKS.IO FOR MORE INFORMATION.
The health of our members and team is important to us. If you feel sick, please stay home and call a healthcare professional immediately to help you get well. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
Knowledge is the best way to stay calm and collected. Be sure to visit these sites created by the CDC and WHO for the most up-to-date information.
