A New Offering
Connects Workspace has been working on a new offering called "Office Hours". We were planning to start this in April but then all of our worlds got thrown upside down and we hit the pause button. We would like to launch Office Hours in September but want to provide a service that would truly benefit our members in this current environment.
Office Hours are a prescheduled time where members can sign up to spend 15-30 minutes with a subject matter expert such as a social media consultant, IT support, business finance, IP attorney, non-profit consultant etc. Connects will recruit our experts, invite our members and manage the reservations.
What experts would you benefit from seeing? Let us know here.
Emergency Ordinance Expands Mask Requirements in Golden What This Means for Connects:
Connects Workspace is not considered a public space, therefore our current policies remain in place (masks are to be worn when moving about the spaces- entering/exiting the spaces, in the copy rooms and kitchenettes, etc.)
Golden City Council unanimously passed an emergency ordinance which expands current mask requirements to include indoor and outdoor areas of the city. This is in effect now. Council made this decision in an effort to protect the community against COVID-19 and keep businesses open. Ordinance 2140 requires face coverings for anyone working or visiting a building that’s open to the public. The order also requires masks in public areas outside, unless you can maintain six feet of separation from others. This includes streets, sidewalks, parks, trails, etc.
Exemptions to the Mask Order Include:
· Children 3 and under · People with existing medical conditions that make mask-wearing unsafe to their health · Anyone undergoing a medical procedure (ex. Dentist or doctor appointments) · When you are seated and eating or drinking · Schools · Organized sports leagues that are already in compliance with health guidelines
In Golden, follow the Golden Rule and wear a mask to protect others! This Ordinance expires on Aug. 14 unless City Council votes to extend it. They will re-visit the mask ordinance monthly and make adjustments as necessary based on current health guidelines and pandemic concerns. Additionally, Council directed staff to look for ways to re-open Clear Creek for limited recreation. Until safe solutions can be identified and implemented, access to the creek will remain closed.
