The pandemic has been incredibly disruptive to in-person office work and despite all the back and forth, there is one way to push health at work and that is with vaccines. Trellis Workspace, located at 981 Mission Street in San Francisco is a cowork space that requires proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter.
The choice to require vaccinations is one that is increasingly being sought by groups around the nation as the Delta coronavirus variant surges, including at government offices, schools, hospitals, and some offices as well. Although initially skeptical of having a requirement, the surge of cases and deaths including with coworkers has spurred action.
Once inside, visitors can get access to unlimited coffee pours, filtered water, a full bar with wine and craft, beer on 12 taps, and libations as well as private office spaces, conference rooms, and telephone booths that can be used for quick meetings.
The open space boasts numerous plugs, a great Wi-Fi connection, and printing to serve most business needs. There are also restrooms in the building as well for a complete office space experience.
Access to the cowork space can be done hourly, weekly, or monthly, with options for private-use as well and the space is open on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 pm. Those that stick around can take advantage of happy hour specials, especially on Fridays.
The staff at Trellis is friendly at the door and with any needs you may have as a visitor. The office space seems to be only moderately busy as many workers continue to work at home during the pandemic.
San Francisco ramps up vaccine effort
Just this week the San Francisco Bar Owner Alliance moved to make it the official position of the group that vaccination will be required for entrance to bars with over 500 members in their group. The statement put out by the group reads, “This decision is based solely on our need to protect our workers, customers, and their families, however, we hope it might also influence some who have not yet received vaccinations to do so as soon as they are able.”
Politicians including San Francisco Mayor London Breed supported the move saying in a statement on Twitter, “This is a responsible decision by the SF Bar Owner Alliance that will help protect employees and customers. We need everyone to get vaccinated, especially as the Delta variant continues to spread. It’s how we can keep our city and our residents safe.”
San Francisco has also moved to require vaccination for all government employees in an effort to continue its push for vaccination. San Francisco has one of the highest vaccination rates in the United States and the city has taken numerous actions during the pandemic to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The CDC has recently announced a change to mask policies this week as cases rise and the nation begins to grapple with yet another COVID-19 wave. Vaccine requirements seem like a no brainer in the effort to one day hopefully return to normalcy in our society.
