After reviewing the data and public health experts’ recommendations, we are now requiring face coverings and social distancing for everyone in all indoor shared spaces regardless of vaccine status.
Everyone must comply with this requirement, including volunteers, interns, guests, visitors, delivery people, and contractors.
Indoor shared spaces include the Commons and kitchen area, the Corral, Classroom, Boardroom, Conference Rooms, Flexrooms, bathrooms, lobby, mailroom, hallways, stairs, elevator, and entering and exiting the building. This also includes any indoor shared space event regardless of the day (weekday or weekend) or time.
