We would like to update you on important steps that the Claremont MakerSpace is taking in order to do our part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to continue to provide a safe environment for our members and volunteers.
This weekend New Hampshire and Vermont declared a state of emergency and ordered all public and private schools closed. In keeping with that, the Claremont MakerSpace has cancelled all classes through April 6th.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has advised that there should be no gatherings of over 50 people for the next 8 weeks, and as such the Claremont MakerSpace Open House that had been scheduled for May 1st has been cancelled.
The Claremont MakerSpace remains closed to the non-member public and tours of our facility have been suspended indefinitely. We remain accessible for members.
Thank you for your continued understanding as we continue to take steps necessary to keep our members and volunteers safe. This is a rapidly unfolding situation, and we will continue to make adjustments to our operations as necessary, and will keep you posted.
Stay healthy, keep makin’, wash your hands and stay home if you or a family member are feeling ill or at elevated risk, really.
