Kiva remains closed to the public, and the front doors at each location will be locked, pending Counting Health Policy updates.
Members may access their workstations in accordance with the following guidelines below.
Masks - With the CDC announcement on May 13th, Kiva no longer requires fully vaccinated individuals to wear a face mask in the communal space. The CDC still recommends face masks continue to be worn by people who are not vaccinated. Please respect those who continue to wear a mask.
Cleaning - Kiva’s locations are cleaned and sanitized multiple times a week, to include all surfaces and high touch points. Maintaining hygienic work spaces is a top priority at Kiva.
Air Quality - Kiva has invested in UV air purifiers in all locations. In conjunction with the HVAC system, these purifiers keep the air moving and clean, helping to eliminate potentially hazardous airborne particles.
Office Members - Kiva strongly recommends private office members keep their door closed while in the space to prevent close contact with other members.
Sanitation Stations - Kiva has stations throughout all locations, which include hand sanitizer, spare masks, and disinfectant wipes. Kiva encourages members to utilize these protective supplies as needed.
Socially Distanced Workstations - In conjunction with the CDC’s guidelines, Kiva has spaced workstations in both locations to give members plenty of room between each other.
Signage - Kiva has clearly marked signage throughout the space to communicate these protocols and keep our members safe and productive.
