Covid-19 Cleaning & Safety Procedures at Sprout

Over the past year we’ve implemented several new measures as a result of Covid-19. With everyone’s help, Sprout CoWorking can continue to operate as safely as possible throughout the duration of the health crisis. We thank you for your continued cooperation in these efforts. We are committed to your safety and wouldn’t be here without all of our members.

This past week, Ocean State Shields applied surface protection products to all available office spaces at Sprout Providence. Learn more about the full list of cleaning and safety changes staff has made in order to keep our community protected at Sprout CoWorking.

Ocean State Shields

We’re happy to announce available private offices and open cube offices in Providence are now protected by Ocean State Shield’s 99.999% effective hospital-grade disinfectant and a wide-spectrum antimicrobial coating that provides long-lasting surface protection for up to a year.

All of our meeting rooms and flexible work space areas have also been covered by OSS’s non-toxic surface barrier at both Sprout locations. Please read here for more information about these cutting-edge disinfectant products.

Daily Cleaning

Sprout CoWorking staff are cleaning and sanitizing high-touch areas throughout staffed hours in Providence and Warren. These areas include desks, doorknobs, buttons and switches, and kitchen faucets. Antibacterial soap is provided at all sinks for members and guests.

We are also providing members with tissues, paper towels, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant supplies to wipe down the surfaces they’ve touched before leaving for the day – an extra precaution in addition to Ocean State Shields’ treatments and staff cleaning.

Kitchen Area

Mugs and silverware have been removed from the kitchen. Single-serve, disposable coffee, tea cups and utensils are in use to eliminate shared supplies.

Personal Protection

Staff, members and all visitors are required to wear a face mask and self-screen for symptoms before entering the space. Masks will be provided if needed. Face masks may be temporarily removed in closed-door, private offices only.

Distancing

Available desks and seating have been de-densified to provide a socially-distant environment while working. Assigned seating and dedicated desks are an option on request. Please follow socially distant guidelines and stay 6 feet away from other members in all spaces.

Meeting rooms are available with reduced capacity and seating. Please check the updated room capacity limits by the front desk before booking.

Contact Tracing

Sprout CoWorking staff are keeping note of who comes and goes, including non-members who rent meeting rooms. If a confirmed case of Covid-19 is present in our workspace, or individuals in our workspace have been exposed to a confirmed case, we will notify RIDOH, members and recent visitors immediately and perform a full cleaning and disinfection of the coworking space.
