Boston Building Resources COVID-19 update:
Workshops through late April are cancelled. When/if they resume, the following practices will be used:
- We recommend that all participants use gloves, which BBR will provide.
- We have disposable dust respirators and will provide those. They are not medical grade, however, and will not stop viruses like COVID-19.
- Hand sanitizer, tissues, and disinfectant wipes will be available in each workshop.
- People who want to use goggles and pens/pencils will have to bring their own.
- There will be specially marked, lined buckets to dispose of gloves, tissues, and respirators.
- Social distancing practices will be used. In order to allow six feet of distance between participants, hands-on experiences will be individual rather than in twos or threes.
- Participants should not shake hands, and not share items such as pencils, pens, or tools without sanitizing them first.
