What won’t be changing anytime in the near future are our fellow TC Makers that are immunocompromised or unvaccinated. As vaccination rates have soared in Minnesota leading to decreases in COVID-19 infection and mortality, what is being overlooked is a surge in cases amongst the unvaccinated and immunocompromised (Business Insider article). In fact, the infection and mortality rates in the unvaccinated are as bad as it was in December 2020 and the emergence of new variants, such as Delta, merit continued concern (CDC surveillance program).
Every shop area has a sign near its entrance stating how many people can be in that area at one time. Do not walk
within 6 feet of anyone else in the shop. Don’t remain in an area if your presence would push the head count over that limit.
If you have any questions or concerns about safety in the shop, or if you witness any member not complying with the posted regulations please report it at go.tcmaker.org/incidentreport or email us at [email protected]
Keep to your pre-scheduled time slot
Schedule your shop time in Clubhouse before heading off to the shop. Once you’ve scheduled that time, stick to it or cancel it – show up on time, and leave on time as well. If the area you’re in is below its occupancy limit at the end of your time slot you can continue to work, but be prepared to leave if the area fills up with other scheduled members.
Walk-ins are acceptable though Reservations take precedence.
The shop areas must STAY below the occupancy limit. If you are a walk-in, and the area you would like to use is at capacity, you must leave or use another area that is below capacity.
Wash your hands, folks! That should go without saying now. Also remember to wipe down surfaces that you’ve been touching. We have sanitizer stations around the shop with both hand and surface sanitizing sprays. Check on machines for any specific instructions for cleaning.
If you’re feeling even a little bit off, please, don’t come into the shop.
Please report if you test positive for COVID so we can keep our community informed. You can also download the new app COVIDaware MN to get notified if you have been near someone who tests positive for COVID-19 https://covidawaremn.com/.
Twin Cities Maker as wound down our PPE production efforts for the time being. If the need arises again we will put out another call to the community for help.
