COVID-19 UPDATE

CARING FOR THE AMHERSTWORKS COMMUNITY

AmherstWorks is concerned about the well-being of our members and our membership assistants. On this page we will share steps we have taken to ensure the safety of all and links for local and federal resources. 
As a coworking space, we had every intention of remaining operational and open, but as of Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at noon, as per the order given by Governor Baker, we temporarily closed.
We will be remaining closed through June 8th, 2020, please continue to look back at this page for updates on when we will reopen. 
Please contact info@amherstworks.io should you have any questions during this time.  

WHAT STEPS IS AMHERSTWORKS TAKING? 

Staying informed and closely monitoring the situation.
We are maintaining contact with local, state and federal officials and we are committed to sharing information as it becomes available. Please make sure you are staying up-to-date by visiting pages created by the CDC and WHO.
Access to the Space
In an effort to reduce transmission and exposure of COVID-19 and following CDC guidelines regarding social distancing, we have temporarily closed our work space. All key cards have been deactivated and members will not have access to the building. 
Our membership assistants have been working remotely since Monday, March 16, 2020 and will continue to be available. Please email us at info@amherstworks.io for assistance, questions, or concerns. 
Cleaning and Maintenance of the Space
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 and while the space is closed we will be doing a deep clean of all common areas. If you rent an office or dedicated desk, we’d be happy to do a deep clean, too. Please send us an email to info@amherstworks.io with your request. There will be no cost for this service. 

MEMBERSHIP INQUIRIES

While we are closed, we will be unable to provide tours of the space, but our virtual tours and photos of our offices will still be available. If you are interested in starting a membership, renting a dedicated desk or office at this time please email info@amherstworks.io to request information.

REMINDERS

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.

STAY INFORMED

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.
You can also stay informed about changes locally by using these resources provided by the Town of Amherst, like the Coronavirus Update Page and the Health Concerns page.
Lastly, for those of you traveling, be sure to visit CDC’s Information for Travel Page for pertinent travel advisories. 
Stay Well,
The AmherstWorks Team
