Response to COVID-19

We're taking the necessary steps to protitize the health and safety of all artist, as well as, employees in our spaces. We have implemented a scheduling system for all maker spaces to prevent overcrowding. See above to schedule your time. 

Increased Sanitization

In addition to Bridge's normal cleaning routine, we are cleaning high touch/traffic areas with more frequency. 

Physical Distancing

We have modified shared spaces to prioritize personal space and safety. 

Behavioral Signage

Signage about mask wearing have been placed in strategic location around the campus to ensure that makers are following protocols.
