We got the green light to reopen Outlet on Thursday, May 14th! We are excited to welcome everyone back (though not everyone at the same time :P)! Several changes have been made to the space to create a safer environment for our members.  We are also instituting new policies for our facility with the goal of ensuring the health and safety of all members and guests. We hope to be back to Waffle Wednesdays and handshakes/fist bumps/hugs sometime in the (near) future but we need everyone’s help in following these policies for now. Information about these changes as well as modified hours are below. 


Changes to Space

  • Seating has been removed from common areas to accommodate physical distancing.
  • All HVAC air filters have been replaced with new HEPA filters.
  • Doors from the front room to the rest of the space will be kept open to reduce high touch point.
  • Coffee pots will be moved to the bar counter to reduce congestion/traffic in the kitchen.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available at several locations around the facility.
  • Sanitizing wipes will be placed on all coworking tables and in all meeting rooms.
  • Exterior doors will be kept open as much as possible to increase ventilation in the building.

Health and Safety Policies



  • If you are sick, STAY HOME! 
  • If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please follow all federal, state, and local guidance before returning to Outlet.

  • No gatherings in common areas.
  • No handshakes or any other personal contact.
  • Members are highly encouraged to wear masks and wash their hands often. Masks will be available at the front desk for members and guests upon request. (This may turn into a requirement, depending on updated guidance from Sacramento County.)
  • Staff will be wearing masks and will be regularly washing hands.
  • Disposable cups will be used for coffee, tea, and other beverages.
