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.

Since the release of BC's Restart Plan in May, enabling more businesses to open, we have been excited to see our members coming back into the offices, along with many new members joining. Thank you!

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.

We have adapted our spaces as per the recommendations from the BC health officials and WorkSafeBC. This does affect our capacity at our spaces and is something we'll be monitoring. In the meantime, we'll continue to do the following:

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
  • Plexi-glass barriers and reduced 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
  • Require members to wear masks when not seated at their work stations (in the hallways, kitchen, washrooms, etc.)
  • Daily check in for all members and visitors to the space accessed by QR code or online here

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 internationally, please work from home for the 14 day self-isolation period
  • Complete the self check-in before entering the workspace each day
  • Sanitize your hands every time you enter the office and after using the washrooms
  • Give other members their 2m of space with specific focus on tighter spaces and where a mask when appropriate
  • 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.

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!
