Coronavirus Response

Updated 3/17/2020

State, Federal, and Local authorities have requested that all persons avoid groupings of 50 25 10 or more people, in an effort to try and slow the initial spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus. In our area Schools, Libraries, Bars and Restaurants, and other ‘public accommodation’ venues have been closed, or are operating in extremely limited capacities. Lane Transit District has begun reducing their schedules as well, making it more difficult for many of our ‘regular staff’ members to be available for hosting/welcoming duties.

Beginning today, and for the next four weeks (at least) we must announce that our “Open Hack” public-access nights have been temporarily suspended.

Tuesday Friday
3/17 3/20
3/24 3/27
3/31 4/3
4/7 4/10

This was not an easy decision for us, as we see our public access hours to be a key part of our purpose. We will update this page with more information as we have it, and we hope to return to normal operations soon!

Our shop remains open for our existing members with keys, and members are still welcome to bring their friends, children, and guests to the shop.

Prospective members who wish to ‘tour the space before they join’ can join us on Slack, to perhaps arrange a time when a member is willing and available to show them around. If you’ve been wanting to join but haven’t yet, now would be a fantastic time! Click this link to begin the signup process.. and if you’ve already set up a key but need to activate it, you can do that at Patreon.
