Weekly Meeting Agenda


  • Read below for yourself

*Basically if you have been vaccinated you don't have to wear a mask. (But you certainly can if you want.)

  • Hive13 supports your choice to wear a Mask at any time for any reason.
  • Masks are part of the new Normal.
  • Wearing a Mask makes sense due to pathogens, dust, and stuff in the air.
  • Wearing a Mask is a Reasonable Accommodation to protect others if they are at risk.
    • Stay away from Hive13 if you feel ill or have a fever. It does not matter if it's COVID or something else. Please keep it at home.
    • Wear a mask if you are not vaccinated or if you need to wear a mask for your own protection.
    • Sign in at the front inner entrance
    • Maintain respectful social distancing
    • Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly.
    • Please keep in mind – We are ALL responsible for the cleanliness of Hive13. Please dust, sweep up, take out the trash, and sanitize areas you have used before leaving.
  • Hive13 will not check your vaccination status for COVID, Influenza, Measles, Chicken Pox…
