Our team at Deskpass has been hard at work making sure that your transition back is as smooth as possible. Over the previous weeks, we’ve been closely following the impacts of Covid-19 on our coworking space network, and are committed to ensuring the utmost safety for our members and partner spaces.
Currently, we are starting to reopen the Deskpass network on a city-by-city basis, and based on each city’s local government orders and their reopening recommendations.
Additionally, we are making sure all spaces in each region have enough time to update their profiles and input their safety policies.
As soon as a certain city has been cleared to reopen by local orders, and enough spaces have updated their Deskpass listings with safety policies and requirements, we will reopen that city and notify all members in that city.
UPDATE: As of September 2020, Deskpass is back online in all 20 cities where we operate.
To ensure that all members are safe and protected, we’ve launched our Safety Pledge Program. As part of this initiative, each space is required to indicate what health and safety practices they are committed to upholding, prior to being reactivated on our workspace network.
A space’s safety practices are now publicly displayed on their Deskpass profile under the new Safety Pledge section.
Spaces that adhere to the Deskpass suggested standards will also receive a Safe Space badge on their profile. These suggested standards are based on the recommendations from leading health and safety organizations (CDC, WHO, and OSHA) and the shared workspace industry.
Requirements for the Safe Space badge are:
- face coverings (at least in communal areas)
- hand sanitizer provided on-site
- 6 feet between workstations
- safety signage posted on-site
- cleaning and disinfecting common surfaces twice daily
- a contingency plan and action steps, and safe food and beverage service
