COVID-19 Protocols

Home / Who We Are / COVID-19 Protocols

The Norwood Space Center is a community of members including tenants and Workbar members occupying a wide range of spaces with artists, entrepreneurs, manufacturers and business professionals, all working together to enhance their businesses. 

As we navigate COVID-19 and it’s variants, we want you to feel safe where you work. Norwood Space Center and Workbar have coordinated efforts to create this document of guidelines and best practices for all community members. We need to work as a team to make sure this plan succeeds. We reconfigured work areas to ensure social distancing, provide plenty of hand sanitizers and wipes to keep workstations clean, offering masks for use in public areas and additional cleaning personnel to wipe down heavy traffic areas during the day. Our facility will be sanitized nightly so that every day you feel safe about returning to work. Look for signage on the walls and floor as well as standing banners for standard protocol once inside the facility.

We are providing all members and their employees access to Workbar’s Wobbe platform for purposes of enhancing communication, posting notices, and change in plans and ask that you provide all member and employee names, email addresses, and telephone numbers for access and notifications. 

Please feel free to contact Dave or Tricia with any questions or concerns. We are here to help you navigate the new norm.

Keeping the air virus free

We use state-of-the-art air distribution systems and work with our cleaners to come nightly to disinfect all major touch point areas at Norwood Space Center

Distance while working

  • We are lowering capacity in the open space and meeting rooms.
  • We are adding space dividers between many of the open coworking seats.
  • We are providing more space between desks in each neighborhood by removing seats at the desks that should remain empty to adhere to the six foot requirement.
  • We are adding a density tracker to Wobbe so members can know how many people are in the space at all times.
  • We are lifting time restrictions so members can work when they feel safest, before 9 AM or after 5 PM.
  • Enjoy outside seating available in the courtyard.

Distance in common areas

  • Directional arrows will be on floors to cut down on cross traffic.
  • 6 ft markers will be on the floors in high traffic, queue forming areas such as the printer, the coffee maker, refrigerator and community manager.
  • Check Wobbe to see who is currently in the space. There will be a green circle next to their profile if they are in the space that day. You can also just SLACK them from the new Workbar slack channel!
