ThisWeekIn Coworking

Week 43, 2020

This week we share stories about airborne infection mitigation, onboarding templates, green business awards and more.

๐Ÿคฏ Take a deep-dive into mitigating against airborne infections in your coworking space.

There have been ongoing discussions about whether or not COVID-19 is transferable via air particles, and if it is, how coworking spaces can best adapt their mitigation strategies to best protect their customers, visitors, staff and loved ones.

To address questions around this topic head-on I was joined by Jerome Chang, a licensed and still-practicing architect and owner of BLANKSPACES, and unanimously known as the friendliest guy in coworking.

Jerome takes a deep-dive to share a whole trove of knowledge, insights and tips for coworking spaces operators.ย
