Building & Grounds Request During COVID-19

 

Currently NO indoor use. We hope to resume after December 8th.

Our current facilities-use protocols are meant to help us act in a way that considers one another as greater than ourselves by utilizing best public health practices and following state and local orders.

We know that circumstances will change and we’re holding ourselves ready. Towards that end, please read the logistics below each time you schedule and make everyone in your group aware of them too.

 

Indoor Use

Before you arrive:


  • Be symptom free, not in contact with anyone symptomatic, and no travel to areas that are experiencing a disease resurgence. You’ll certify on a sign-in sheet when you arrive.
  • Wait 10 days after testing positive for COVID-19 or until you’ve tested negative.
  • Schedule in advance using the form below (available rooms are Harvest, Meadowview, NorthStar, Turning Point, Music Room, and Knox Hall, not the Garden Room or Kitchen).
  • Look for a confirmation email; we may not be able to schedule your group as requested.
  • Check our Facilities Calendar; this will give you a better idea of whether your request can be fulfilled. Keep in mind we are scheduling 45 minutes between groups and your group will need to allocate time to wipe down surfaces before you leave.
  • Please don’t schedule gatherings that involve children under 12 years of age; remember youth 12+ must follow the same protocols as adults.
  • Be prepared to set-up Zoom if you need it; we will not be able to provide assistance.
  • Pack your mask(s).
  • Please note, if you or someone in your group develop COVID-19 symptoms or test positive after building use, we ask that you notify Mike Fox, Knox’s Operations Director and help with contact tracing.

When you arrive:


  • Enter via the designated office entrance.
  • Sanitize or wash your hands.
  • Sign-in with name and date; answer the questions mentioned above. If the answer is yes to any of them, we ask that you not use the building.

    • Meadowview, Harvest and NorthStar Rooms @ 10
