COVID-19 Updates for Rev Members and Friends
Current Operating Status (Updated March 14, 2022)
As you may know, Rev: Ithaca Startup Works follows the COVID-19 public health guidance established by Cornell University.
Effective March 14, 2022, Cornell University is initiating a phased approach to relaxing its mask requirements (read Cornell’s official update on masking). In keeping with this update, Rev staff, members, and visitors will no longer be required to mask while indoors at Rev: Ithaca Startup Works. All staff, members, and visitors are still required to sign-in upon entering the premises.
The choice to continue masking, even when not required, is a personal one, and no one should be made to feel uncomfortable because of their choice. It is well established that wearing a mask while indoors reduces the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19. Individuals who are concerned about the risk of infection are encouraged to continue to wear a mask, and we ask that all members of our community support and respect one another’s masking choices. If you are experiencing symptoms suggestive of COVID-19, we ask that you stay home and we encourage you to seek symptomatic testing.
Rev will continue to provide high-quality masks to staff, members, and visitors who need one.
In the coming weeks, Cornell University will continue to monitor the prevalence of COVID-19 on campus and may make additional adjustments to these guidelines. We will update the Rev community of any changes accordingly.
