Dear Members,

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers addressed Wisconsinites on 11/10 requesting that we do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19. He noted the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation’s projection that 2,500 additional Wisconsinites could die before the new year if no further actions are taken. Additionally, he announced his plans to introduce new COVID-19 response legislation and Executive Order 94 a series of recommendations for Wisconsinites to protect their family, friends, co-workers and neighbors. 

At StartingBlock Madison the safety of our team and members are a top priority. We are fortunate to work in a 100% fresh air intake building that is routinely cleaned and closed to the public. We are following all guidelines outlined by the CDC and Dane County Health Dept. We know that members are staggering shifts/spaces to practice appropriate distancing and masking while in the building and routinely washing their hands. Thank you for your kindness and concern and for keeping our space safe. If you have any questions, are interested in a flex space or other temporary space during the week to allow you to socially distance further, please be in touch with Caleb Walters, Membership Manager. We encourage you to visit the Dane Co. Health Dept website as well as sign up for COVID updates from the City of Madison. We are committed to keeping you informed about any COVID exposures in the building. StartingBlock has been very fortunate with just one known exposure and COVID-alert since July. American Family has specific processes and guidelines for cleaning when a known case occurs in the building. Please be sure to let one of the StartingBlock Madison team know if you or a member of your team was in the facility and tested positive for COVID-19.

Be well, be safe and thank you so much.

Nora, StartingBlock Executive Director
