Facility Notices & Protective Measures Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

[5/22/2020] RE-OPENING UPDATE :
PHASE 1 REOPENING PLAN FOR T-REX (Full Document)

On June 1st, we will begin a limited re-opening of our 5th floor and coworking space. To reduce the spread of COVID-19 and continue to serve our community, we have compiled a comprehensive Phase 1 Reopening Plan for T-REX. These Phase I policies are being initiated for the safety and security of our members, tenants, and guests, while also ensuring that all building users comply with the requirements and protective measures outlined in the City of St. Louis Health Commissioner's Order #8. All people entering T-REX will need to respect and abide by these policies. We thank you for understanding the importance of these measures as our City works to restart responsibly.

[5/11/2020] RE-OPENING UPDATE :
PHASE 1 - COWORKING

The staff and board of T-REX hope that everyone in our T-REX community is well and safe, and is taking good care of themselves. We want to share information for your planning purposes regarding our re-opening of our co-working space and management of meetings as we approach a first phase of re-opening. Much more detailed information will be forthcoming.

  • We plan to open 5th floor coworking on a limited basis starting June 1. At that time, we will have worked with all our co-working companies to find appropriate space for them for social distancing guidelines.

  • The offices throughout the building remain open to their tenants, as they have been throughout this emergency.

  • Beginning May 18th, all persons entering the building will be required to wear masks in any public areas, including the lobby, hallways, elevators, elevator lobbies, and in any shared gathering spaces. **Please note, according to City of St. Louis reopening guidelines, employers are expected to provide masks for their employees.**

  • Starting June 1, we will allow some meeting space to be utilized, but that will be strictly limited to spaces that can be cleaned in between meetings, and limited to size of rooms and social distancing guidelines. For example, for the time being, no more than ten people can be permitted to meet in any one room per the guidelines issued by the City of St. Louis.

  • Common use kitchens will remain closed throughout the facility for the time being.

  • Coffee provision will also change for the time being—stay tuned.

  • T-REX is investing in many tools and resources to address the spread of COVID 19, including hand sanitizer stations, HVAC improvements, a disinfecting specialist who will be constantly wiping down surfaces throughout the facility, policy modifications, and other infrastructure changes.
Thank you for your collaboration in this effort. T-REX has been consulting with multiple experts in its re-opening planning, and we have been intent on providing every resource we have available to us in these efforts. You are all important partners in these efforts. Handwashing, masks, staying home if you feel sick, notifying us if you do receive a COVID 19 diagnosis, are vital components of this plan.

Thank you all. And thank you for your continuing support.

All the best,
Patty Hagen
President & Executive Director, T-REX
