HAYVN will take the following steps to maintain a healthy work environment:

  • Provide hand sanitizers and tissues in multiple locations
  • Remind members and visitors to social distance and wash hands regularly
  • Perform routine cleaning and disinfection
  • Cap occupancy at 50% of workspace capacity

HAYVN’s Safe Workplace Rules


    Unvaccinated HAYVN employees, members, and guests are required to practice social distancing within the workspace. Social distancing, as recommended by the CDC, includes taking the following steps:

    • Maintain a distance of 6 feet or 2 meters from other people
    • Reserve meeting rooms large enough to maintain social distancing guidelines

    • Regularly Wash Your Hands: HAYVN members are required to wash their hands upon entry into the workspace. The CDC recommends washing your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
    • Wipe Work Surfaces Regularly: HAYVN recommends that members bring in their own supply of disposable wipes to clean the surfaces in their private offices.
    • Stay Home: HAYVN members who are feeling sick or live with someone who is sick, whether diagnosed with COVID-19 or not, are prohibited from entering HAYVN’s workspace and are advised to stay at home.
    • Self-isolate at your residence if you test positive or experience common symptoms.
    • Quarantine yourself if you have been in close contact with someone who tests positive or has COVID symptoms.
    • Contact Tracing: Contact a HAYVN community manager if you quarantine or self-isolate so that contact tracing of close contacts may be conducted. Your identity will remain confidential.
    • Travel: HAYVN members who travel out of country are required quarantine themselves for two weeks following re-entry to the United States and to follow the procedures in the CDC’s CARE: Check and Record Every Day Booklet.
  • Follow CDC directions on how to Stop The Spread of Germs
