Returning to Venture Lane: Our COVID-19 Playbook

Returning to Venture Lane: Our COVID-19 Playbook

The COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented and unlike any crisis we have had to face before. As part of the Massachusetts phase 1 reopening plan, Venture Lane will start a reduced physical operation on June 1st. We'll be operating at 25% of our maximum capacity. Over the past month, we created a COVID-19 playbook that details how we'll tackle returning to our space. We believe in staying ahead of the curve and want to come out of it as a team and community with our values intact.

Member safety and wellbeing are our first priority, and we rely on you all to use great judgment every single day. We trust our members to make the decisions that are best for them, their families, and the Venture Lane community. All the guidance in our COVID-19 playbook starts from that perspective.

Over the past two weeks, we've made countless changes to our physical space. We've offered free antibody testing to all Venture Lane members thanks to the generosity of our member company, Meenta. Further, we've implemented a platform for members to anonymously share COVID-19 related questions, concerns, and complaints with our member company, Whispli. We're requiring all members working out of the space to update their health status on the Symptom Study App. And, we created our COVID-19 playbook for members to understand what to expect when they return to the space.

We are closely monitoring the crisis and heavily lean on CDC guidelines and the State of Massachusetts guidelines to inform our COVID-19 playbook. This manual was created using an abundance of resources online. Truly, thank you to those groups for publicly sharing their return-to-work plans and we are paying-it-forward by publicly sharing ours as well.

Stay healthy and well!

Christian Magel
Founder & CEO, Venture Lane
