  GUILD Calendar       

COVID-19 INFORMATION

The Guild Shop is open for business.  To reduce the risk to members, the following is required:

  • Registration is required for all events and is limited to 6 people plus the Shop Attendant and/or Instructor.  Events are listed on the Guild Calendar on the website - you’ll need to be logged in to see most of them.  Open shop is only listed if there is a shop attendant.
  • Wash your hands before entering the shop.  A wash station is available outside the bench room door when the shop is open.
  • Wear a face covering - this is a cloth or paper mask that does not have an exhaust valve.  Disposable masks are available for $1 at the shop.  At this time, face shields are not allowed unless worn over a mask.
  • Wear eye protection at all times.  In the bench room, this does not have to be ANSI rated safety glasses (unless you are doing something with the risk of impact).
  • Maintain social distancing - approximately 6 feet.

For off-site Guild sponsored activities, members are required to wear a mask and maintain social distance.  

Guild Procedure if a member has been exposed

We have had some members exposed to COVID-19.  Those members were notified that they are not to come to the shop for at least 14 days.  We cancelled activities  where they would have been the lead.  We have also compiled a list of those who had secondary exposure just in case we need (if one of them tests positive).  If one of the members test positive, those who were exposed to them will be notified.

Before scheduling a shop session, please assure that 

  • You are in good health, not living with anyone who is ill, have not been exposed to anyone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days

  • You have a face covering without an exhaust valve. This must cover your nose, mouth, and chin and is to be worn at all times. The Guild does have some for sale at the shop but we recommend you bring your own.
  • You have safety glasses. The requirement for machine use hasn’t changed (ANSI Z87.1 rated) but even if you are just using the bench room, you must wear safety glasses. For the bench room, they do not have to have side shields – impact resistant is fine.
  • You are willing to abide by the requirements.
