Our studio is located at cSpace King Edward, a creative hub, in Marda Loop, Calgary.
CSPACE COVID 19 POLICY
The following precautions are being taken by the building at large:
cSpace have added hand sanitizer stations at all entrances, close to elevator doors on all floors and in meeting rooms.
Rapid Response Plan
cSpace have written a rapid response plan in case someone falls ill while on site. Their tenants are also required to have a rapid response plan in place.
cSpace have implemented a screening and sign in sheet for all coworkers and cSPACE staff. This will allow them to effectively perform contact tracing if the need arises. They have encouraged tenants to do the same for all staff and patrons.
cSpace have removed all public seating. Meeting spaces have also been restricted in capacity.
The West stairwell will be used exclusively for going down, while the East Stairwell will be used for going up.
The elevator has been restricted to allow for only 2 people at a time, and standing areas have been clearly marked on the floor.
cSpace hallways are wide enough to accommodate people walking in both directions with physical distancing of 6′.
Cleaning and Disinfecting
In addition to the buildings weekly cleaning and disinfection routine, the staff perform daily cleaning of all high touch surfaces at midday and use a fogger, disinfecting machine, every evening for added sterilization.
As we reopen we want to remind you to stay healthy, wash your hands and use hand sanitizer. If you feel unwell or are experiencing symptoms, like a runny nose, fever, cough, or extreme fatigue, take care of yourself and others by staying home. We appreciate your support!
We will continue to reevaluate these measures regularly and as conditions change.NATALIE GERBER STUDIO & WORKSHOPS: ADDED PRECUATIONS

Wipes are also provided for your phone. All communal items (such as magazines, cups etc.) have been removed.

Participants will keep their belongings next to their station on the floor. In the event that a participant starts showing symptoms while attending a workshop Natalie Gerber Studio & Workshops has developed a Rapid Response Plan.
In Studio Workshops
All in studio workshops are limited to groups under 5 people, including the instructor, in order to accommodate safe social distancing of at least 6 feet between participants (the length of a bicycle).
The studio is offering private yardage printing workshops to cohorts of 2 – 4 people. Please inquire for further details.
“A COVID-19 cohort, also referred to as a bubble, circle, or safe squad, is a small group whose members –always the same people -do not always keep 2 meters apart. The cohort concept encourages individuals who cannot maintain 2 meter physical distance when in group settings to interact with the same people within their own cohort group rather than switching daily contacts or randomly interacting with others outside that circle.” Alberta Health Service (AHS)Workshops Larger than Five
