Here at the Prairie Den, we are taking measures to protect the safety of our members, staff, community and city. As we get more guidance, the Prairie Den team continues to add actions and develop different ways of safeguarding our members while still providing our value as a community-focused workspace.

Prioritizing the Safety of Our Community
We are working relentlessly to evaluate our space and taking measures to ensure distancing measures and sanitization protocols are in place to protect all. We ask that you take a moment to read all the updated measures and protocols.
Protocols while using the Space:
Every member must sign-in at the front desk/front door every time they visit the space so we can have the most accurate records for contact tracing.
Face coverings are required in the space. They can be removed when seated and when social distancing can be maintained.
Hand sanitizer is available at every entrance and placed throughout the space.
We ask that you don’t use the dishware, mugs or utensils at the Prairie Den until further notice. Although we are advocates for sustainable practices, your health is also important. We will provide single use cutlery and disposable dishware in the mean time to help stop the spread of germs.
No potluck or buffet style meals will be allowed.
Prioritizing Personal Space:
We ask that you maintain social distancing while using the space and allow 6 feet of space between you and any other member.
We have rearranged our shared spaces with staggered seating and bigger walkways to create a space ready for social distancing.
We ask that members respect others’ personal space and maintain a healthy physical distance.
We have set up workstations and chairs at a set distance apart, we ask that you leave the furniture as is to maintain that physical distance.
Our team is committed to disinfecting the space, which includes door handles, table surfaces, the printer, kitchen amenities, bathrooms, whiteboards, and more.
Air filters have been placed throughout the space to maximize effectiveness of reducing air pollutants.
We ask that you clean and sanitize your work station (your table, arms of the chairs, etc.) after you’re done working by using the provided disinfectant wipes and spray.
Social distancing may be part of our new normal, but community and connection remain a top priority – and having a safe place to do that is essential. First and foremost, we want our members to feel safe enough to come in and work and still feel comfortable being with friends and family outside of work.
