Shop status

Old Business/Action Item Review

COVID-19 status review - Open Hack closure status

CDC has issued a notice for Lane County recommending masks indoors. It is not a mandate, but a science-based recommendation. There have been no confrontations reported at the shop under our current policy requesting people wear masks when possible and respect the right of others to wear masks without criticism. Piotr described a PDX makerspace's efforts to quantify need for mask uses through use of CO2 meters to measure air-flow effectiveness.

We discussed what level of restrictions we were willing and comfortable imposing considering risk of confrontation and violence from extremists who have lashed back against mask rules.

ACTION: Karen will will send a notice to the Discord about this stuff.

Ben will order some more masks for the shop and drop them off

Done.

Ben will contact the membership to see if anyone is interested in cleaning up and configuring the 3d printer for checkout

In work.

Ben will update the bot to put events in the calendar immediately instead of waiting until a week before.

In work.

New Business

Trash bin

The EMS vinyl has fallen off the dumpster. Karen suggests that we create a stencil and paint the logo. The key/lock is missing, the cost of replacing the lock is fairly prohibitive. We will try going without a lock and see what happens.

Blinds

The blinds hardware ordered has arrived. Ben will bring it to the shop for installation. Ben will contact Bee ahead of time.

Review upcoming events

None.

ACTION: Karen will contact the Elegoo user to get more details for a blog post.
