- From June 1st we will be open for meetings of up to maximum 30 people (in total, including Hub support staff). Room set ups offered will adhere to the 1.5 m guideline and social distancing.
The condition that applies: Participants must register for the event in advance, and will be checked at the door for symptoms (as per government guidelines) when they enter the Hub.The Hub reserves the right to remove participants and or stop the meeting if guidelines are not followed.
- We can also offer support for Hybrid meetings to include remote participants (video conferencing/live streaming, etc.)
- Additional measures will be in place at the Hub to ensure safe and hygienic use of the Hub for both meeting room participants and co-working members (e.g. one way traffic, frequent sanitizing of surfaces, etc.)
- To set up a meeting reservation, please contact Eliane at email@example.com or call her at 06-22911728.
Update 17 March
Here are some new updates regarding the precautions that we are taking until further notice. This is in addition to the guidelines sent last Friday (see below):
- The Hub will remain accessible for members with coworking rights and door keys only. If you can, work from home.
- Please avoid conducting meetings inside the building and using the event rooms.
- All Hub doors will be locked during the day. Use your key to access the Hub, but remember to take a key with you to the bathroom so you can get back in.
- During this period we will not be washing any glasses, dishes or cutlery. In the interest of hygiene, please bring your own cups and dishes and take them home again for washing up.
- (Large) packages will no longer be received. Please redirect any packages to another address. If you wish to receive them at the hub, please have them contact you directly and arrange to take the delivery in person.
- Mail and small packages fitting in the postbox will still be received and placed in the piegon holes as usual.
No Hub team member will be present at the Hub (only occasionally for mail sorting and plant care).
Friday 13 March
To ensure the safety and well-being of our community and in light of the rapidly evolving situation and the new guidelines on prevention and containment established by the government, we are taking precautions starting today Friday 13 March at least until April 3rd.:
- The Hub will be open for members with coworking rights and door keys only.
A Hub team member will be present on site each day to monitor and carry out necessary daily tasks. We kindly ask members to avoid having visitors or meetings with non-members within the building.
- We will no longer take meeting room bookings. For existing bookings, we are reaching out to the organisers to support the cancelation and rescheduling.
- All currently scheduled events on the Humanity Hub calendar will be cancelled or rescheduled to a later date.
- The Hub Café services and buffet lunch are suspended.
- Reception services are suspended and the doorbell will not be answered. The phone line will remain open.
While we know that this is a fast-changing situation, our hope is that we will be able to resume business as usual as soon as possible. We will be monitoring the situation on an ongoing basis and will inform you of any changes as the situation evolves.
The Hub team is going to work remotely in support of our ongoing activities, and we will be exploring ways to support the collaborative spirit and activities of the Humanity Hub community using virtual platforms and convenings. Stay tuned for details on that.
We all find ourselves these days facing a common challenge. These times call for solidarity, resilience and keeping a flexible approach towards our daily activities. It is each and everyone’s responsibility to follow the guidelines established by the health authorities and help mitigate the impact of this crisis.
Please follow basic hygiene and safety practices as described by RIVM. We support limitation of unnecessary physical social interaction to help limit the spread of the virus (you can be a carrier and infect others even without symptoms!). If you are experiencing any related symptoms, please isolate yourself and visit your GP. Before you go, please call ahead and mention your symptoms.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
