COVID-19 Updates

Like you, we've been monitoring news about the COVID-19 virus and the rapidly changing information about what’s happening locally, nationwide, and globally. In response, we have created this page to keep members up to date on our situation at Suite Genius, and continue to update it as things progress.

We are encouraged to see our BC case numbers continuing to flatten and that the Province is enabling more businesses to open from mid May onwards as part of BC's Restart Plan.

We are eager to welcome more members back to SG. We miss your faces! We do understand that some members may be hesitant to come back in full swing right away due to concerns about the health and safety of the workplaces. But, for those who are ready to get back to work here, at any frequency, we are happy to have you and we are taking the recommended precautions for your safety.

The recommendations from the health officials have been consistent for 2 months now and we've adapted to them over this time. We will continue to follow them as they change over the coming months (i.e. social distancing, sanitizing and limiting gatherings to under 50). This will affect our capacity at our spaces and is is something we'll be monitoring. In the meantime, we'll continue to do the things we've been doing in our spaces:

Suite Genius will continue to do the following:

  • Additional cleaning with extra focus on high-touch areas
  • Hand sanitizer at entrances and communal areas
  • Offer disinfectant wipes at the shared tables for you to wipe down your stations before and after using them
  • Minimize the number of chairs in the hot-desking areas to allow members to spread out 2m apart
  • Manage the capacity of our offices for additional comfort when distancing

We will continue to expect from our members:

  • If you’re feeling unwell, please work from home.
  • If you are part of a vulnerable group, or are in frequent contact with a member of a vulnerable group, please work from home
  • If you've recently travelled to a foreign country, please work from home (and contact us about when you can return)
  • Sanitize your hands every time you enter the office and after using the washrooms
  • Give other members their 2m of space - sorry no handshakes, high fives or hugs :(

General Public, Tours & Prospective Members

As a members-only space we minimize access to the general public. All tours for prospective members need to be booked in advance, and we've added screening questions in regards to health and travel history, before anyone tours the spaces.

Private Offices Available

We do have a few private offices now available at our Mt. Pleasant location if that is of interest to anyone - just message us for the sizes.

We feel strongly that the SG community/family you've helped build is what makes us special as a coworking space in Vancouver, and we just can't wait to be all together again. Even if it's takes us a bit of time to get there, it will happen! And there will be (distanced!) patio happy hours and BBQs to celebrate it!
