May 2, 2022 Covid-19 Update

Hello 10C Members,

We hope you are all doing well!

As things continue to evolve with the pandemic, we are reaching out with an update on the operations and services of 10C.  

10C is open! Our front doors are open Monday to Friday 9am-5pm and we look forward to hosting your next event!

  • PLEASE SIGN-INAll members, coworkers, office lessees, and visitors must continue to sign in on the clipboard at the front desk. 
  • MASKS – In the spirit of continued community safety, 10C requires that people continue to wear a well-fitting MASK in all common areas and group gatherings over 10 people while at 10C Shared Space. In situations where there is mutual consent to remove masks, and small groups (6-8 people) are together in enclosed spaces (offices and meeting rooms), masks may be removed. Removing a mask temporarily while eating is also acceptable.
  • SELF-SCREENING – Before arriving at 10C, please review the self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms and use this provincial digital tool if in question of the protocols. If you feel unwell, have any Covid-19 symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has been recently confirmed to have Covid-19, or is a high-risk close contact, please stay at home. If you or anyone in your household are awaiting Covid-19 test results, please do not enter 10C.
  • VACCINE PASSPORTS – 10C remains a strong proponent of vaccination and encourages all its members and visitors to get vaccinated against covid-19. We take our responsibility for making this space as safe as we can seriously and vaccinations are an important tool in this regard. While 10C will continue to be a vaccination advocate, in keeping with the change in regulations from the Government of Ontario, as of Tuesday, March 1, we will no longer require proof of vaccination to attend a meeting or event at 10C. 
  • DIALOGUE ABOUT VACCINATION – 10C strives to create spaces and places of physical, emotional and intellectual safety. Constructive dialogue about Covid, vaccination and health measures is among the new skills we’ve all been learning since 2020. We strive to create an atmosphere in which you feel comfortable discussing Covid-19 and feelings of personal safety with staff, volunteers, and fellow members. Should challenges arise in this dialogue, the 10C staff team will strive to create safe methods to facilitate further conversation. As one of 10C’s main roles is to be an intermediary and supporter of all of those  working for social change, members are encouraged to contact 10C staff, Associate Director, Katie Baikie ([email protected])

If you have any questions about these guidelines, please reach out to Katie Baikie, Associate Director, at [email protected] or Nathan Lawr, Operations Lead at [email protected] or 519.780.5030.

We are wholeheartedly looking forward to seeing you back in this space.

In community,

The 10C Team
