Phase 3: Restore Illinois

We’re excited to share that we will be reactivating memberships and reopening the Nest Coworking Space, Monday, June 1 with the following precautionary measures:

  • There will be signage reminders throughout the Nest to remind everyone of safety protocols.
  • Hand Sanitizer (from Black Band Distillery) is available throughout the Nest for you to wipe down the working surfaces you will be using before and after use.
  • Please space yourselves out in the space, e.g. 1-2 chairs apart.
  • All members will be required to wear a mask when using the Nest
  • You may elect to utilize additional PPE e.g. gloves, face shields, etc.
  • Please delay in coworking at the Nest if you’re unwell or have been in contact with someone who may be ill.
  • Visitors – In order to keep members safe and for contact tracing purposes, we will need to keep a log of visitors who visit members at the Nest. Please send us a quick email at the time of reserving a meeting room with the names and contact information of all expected visitors.

Businesses all around the region will be opening their doors as Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois Plan kicks off. There are different guidelines for all types of businesses. Check out specific guidelines for each industry below:

As this next phase is implemented it’s important to take care of each other. This is a new phase for everyone, take it one day at a time, remain flexible, respectful and communicate with those you work with.
