COVID-19 Response

Proposed plan for reopening the Guild
Updated 5/27/2020
In response to The Governor’s updated Safer at home order your Board of Directors has updated the following reopening plan for the Woodworkers Education Center (WEC):
1. Effective 6/1/2020 the Guild will return to opening on regular days and hours with the following safety rules followed :
1.1. Attendance at the WEC will be no more than 50% of WEC capacity.
1.2. Members will maintain social distancing of 6’ whenever possible.
1.3. All individuals will provide their own face coverings and wear them at all times while inside the WEC. The Guild has always encouraged the use of PPE, the only change is that the face covering or mask will now be required at least until the protective order is lifted.
1.4. All touched surfaces (door knobs, on off switches, assembly tables, common use tools) must be wiped down hourly, or more frequently if needed, with disinfectant wipes or denatured alcohol. Everyone at the WEC is expected to participate in the disinfecting process.
1.5. Individuals are encouraged to bring their own disinfecting wipes (and/or hand sanitizer) for their personal use as these will not be provided by the Guild.
2. The kitchen is off limits for cooking and eating, with the exception of the on duty supervisor.
3. Regular monthly meetings will remain cancelled as social distancing cannot be maintained.
4. Classes remain cancelled until the board of directors approves their resumption.
We encourage you to check with the supervisor or special interest group lead, posted on the calendar, prior to meeting at the WEC to be sure a supervisor is on duty and the WEC is open.
Safety has always been our highest priority. The challenges we are facing due to the pandemic have just added some additional layers to that. We greatly appreciate the cooperation all Guild members have shown in support of this safety focus.
Approved by the Board of Directors
