As of August 28, 2020
The Encorepreneur Café continues to be physically closed except by appointment. Please look for our online events and partner events that we promote here. We have worked hard to get our cleaning and safety protocols in place and now feel confident that we can safely host certain types of rental guests, including video and photo production, and certain types of workspace users. Please contact us directly to discuss your needs and whether we can accommodate them within the bounds of current Multnomah County and Oregon requirements.
The health and safety of all guests and staff are extremely important to us, and we have spent a great deal of effort pouring over all the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control as well as the Oregon Health Authority. If you have any questions or concerns about our policies, please contact us, and we’d be happy to address them.
We disinfect our space before and between rentals using CDC-approved cleaners. That means that we clean and disinfect any surface that a guest is likely to come into contact with, such as door handles, light switches, tables, chairs, counters, appliances, sinks, restroom surfaces, and cabinets. Our space has an HVAC fan system, as well as a fan in the restroom that is kept on at all times. We keep our front doors open whenever possible.
Masks are required in our space at all times with the exception of individuals who are being photographed/video recorded or are making video calls. Guests must stay 6 feet apart at all times except when it is impossible to avoid. No one is allowed to gather near the restroom or front door, for example, or to sit less than 6 feet apart.
We require staff to stay home with pay if they have COVID-19 symptoms. We also require our guests to stay home if they are experiencing symptoms.
**Note that we realize guests using the space for video shoots may need the front door to be closed and bathroom fan turned off at times. Please contact us regarding these issues and we will do our absolute best to accommodate in a safe way.
