A Message from The Shop During COVID-19

Mar 19, 2020

Supporting Our Professional Community During Coronavirus

During this challenging time amidst the global outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), nothing is more important to The Shop at the CAC than the safety and health of our members, employees, prospects, and larger community. In our efforts to prevent the spread of disease, we also recognize the importance of mental, emotional, and financial health. For those reasons, our coworking space will remain open to be a source of refuge and support where you can safely work while taking steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

If you would like to tour the space, we would love to accommodate you! Here is what you can expect:

• Please call 504-517-1200 to make an appointment before visiting.
• Although the Contemporary Arts Center is open by-appointment only, Shop visitors can call for entry during staffed hours (9 AM-6 PM, M-F).
• With over 40,000sf of space, there is plenty of room to practice recommended social distancing. We have Commons memberships available and a limited number of Day Passes.
• Conference room rentals are limited to members-only until further notice, and all programming and events are paused.

To protect our current Shop members, we are actively:

• Keeping members and staff safe by adhering to expert recommendations and official policies from the Louisiana Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
• Practicing social distancing and maintaining a 6-foot distance between our seating and desk arrangements.
• Adding more frequent cleaning and disinfecting high-traffic areas and surfaces.
• Providing antibacterial wipes and cleaning products at reception for staff and member use.
• Sharing best practices to prevent COVID-19 published by health authorities.

The Shop is committed to maintaining a safe community. We are in this together. By staying well-informed and following the recommendations of our public health authorities, we can work together and have a positive impact on one another. If you have any questions or would like to receive more information on visiting our coworking space, please don’t hesitate to contact us today.
