The Third Space will remain closed while the coronavirus continues to pose a significant risk to health and safety.  Although Oklahoma has relaxed restrictions, we feel that it is too early for us to safely open. We will keep you updated on future decisions and we hope to be able to welcome you back for coworking, events, space rentals and use of our podcasting equipment soon. In the meantime, we are still recording podcasts remotely—contact us [link to email] for more information about broadcasting from your home!

For today’s Third Space Connection, we thought it might be helpful to provide a rundown of changes in the state as of May 1, as well as some best practices to keep in mind. 

Phase One of Open Up and Recover Safely , which went into full effect on May 1, allows the following businesses to open: Hair salons, barbershops, spas, nail salons, tattoo parlors and pet groomers (by appointment only); state parks and outdoor recreation; and dining, entertainment, movie theatres, gyms, sporting venues and places of worship (using CDC-recommended social distancing and sanitation protocols). Social gatherings of more than 10 people remain prohibited. 

But remember, just because some businesses are open  does not mean that the risk is gone ! If anything, an increase in cases may be likely as more people return to work and shopping. Many businesses that are allowed by law to reopen are staying closed or operating by timed appointments to protect workers and customers. 

We want our Third Space family to stay healthy and we encourage you to follow these guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
  •  Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds;
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands;
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when you are around others;
  • Keep at least six feet between you and others, even when wearing a face mask;
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with the inside of your elbow when you do not have on your mask; and
  • Clean and disinfect 

We at The Third Space will continue providing articles and podcasts so that you have plenty of information and entertainment as you continue to stay inside as much as possible. We hope that you all stay healthy, safe and connected! We are always here on Instagram and Facebook !
