Plan for Easing out of Lockdown

Farset Labs will reopen access to the space in steps aligned with government guidance.

However, we will phase in reopening access for members first, then visitors and later to small events to be safe.

Social distancing remains important so please give each other a respectful amount of space when choosing an area to work and using shared facilities. Signage and sectioning will be in place to help.

Sanitising products and personal protective equipment will be made available to everyone in the space.

Our return policy is detailed here.
