The city’s order does include a curfew and the board has voted to follow that curfew. Our hours will be 5am-10:30pm (order currently set to expire 1/11/21).
As you might already know, Austin has moved into Stage 5 of [Austin Public Health's COVID-19 Risk-Based Guidelines](http://www.austintexas.gov/page/covid-19-risk-based-guidelines). The board discussed what our actions would be several weeks ago when the threat of moving to stage 5 was mentioned as well as potential for a city-wide curfew (article [here](https://www.statesman.com/story/news/2020/12/11/austin-travis-county-could-move-stage-5-coronavirus-risk-early-next-week/6508605002/)).
We agreed that given how we have structured rules during COVID to require members schedule their time and sanitizing workspaces, ATXHS will not close in Stage 5. We urge all members to consider whether their use of ATXHS is essential and make that determination on a personal level.
At this time, the city has not set a city-wide curfew. If or when that does happen, we will adjust our hours and post here to let everyone know. As a general rule, if Skedda (our scheduling software) allows you to book a time, it is a valid time to come to the space. If any previously scheduled bookings are affected by new rules, we will reach out to those individuals.
Thank you all for stepping up as a community to make sure we can safely remain in open during these strange times. Please continue diligently masking and sanitizing in the space so that we can continue keeping ATXHS a safe place to create.
-Valerie & ATXHS Board
