By Committee — Mon, 16 Mar 2020
We will be closing the space for at least the next two weeks, reassessing at the end of the month if another two week closure is required. We will be crediting all existing memberships with the exception of full time members who continue to use the space in their own time.
No doubt you have been watching the development of COVID-19 and you may even be wondering what policy the Hackerspace has in place to manage the situation in a local context. Or you may just be wondering where you can get some toilet paper.
The Hackerspace will be following advice supplied by recognised authorities such as The World Health Organisation, The Australian Department of Health and The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. We request that all members take reasonable care for their own health and safety and to also consider the health of all those within our community by adhering to advice offered through these official channels.
With that in mind and with the context of the Victorian state government just declared a state of emergency, we will be closing the space for at least the next two weeks. We will reassess at the end of the month, and unless conditions have significantly improved will likely close for a further two weeks before reassessing again.
What does this mean?
Stay safe and be excellent to each other.
