COVID-19 Preventative Measures at The Union

  • Union COVID-19 Community Health Practices

    1 - All Union staff and visitors who are feeling ill or who have been exposed to someone who's tested COVID positive are asked to not visit the building.

    2 - Free masks (including clear masks) and face shields will be provided on site for anyone in need.

    3 - Co-Op participation will be limited to maintain safety in the studios. To facilitate this, we've moved to an appointment-only model for reserving time to work in the studios.

    4 - In 2021 The Union invested in updating our ventilation systems throughout the building, installing ionisers on each system which work to purify the air circulated within the building.

    5 - Union staff will regularly sanitize all high-touch areas throughout the day, including a full deep-cleaning of all regularly-touched surfaces at the end of each day.

    6 - We will encourage visitor hygiene with easy access to hand sanitizer throughout the building.

The health and safety of each and every one of our stakeholders, community members, artist Fellows, and staff remains our foremost priority at The Union. As the COVID-19 variants continue to make for an uncertain future, we will remain vigilant in maintaining a distanced and sanitized environment for all people entering the building.
