Dear FreeGeek Chicago, friends and family,

Our staff and volunteers of FreeGeek Chicago (FGC) is the core of everything we do here. In light of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers of Disease Control Prevention (CDC) and other local and national health organizations, declaring the coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic, please know our top priority is keeping our staff, volunteers and customers safe at all times.

Like others, we are closely monitoring this situation. We continue to receive current update information and we've taken the necessary following actions:

  • We've increased frequent scheduled cleanings and sanitation of all work stations, bathrooms, entrances and exits, as well as other areas of FGC.
  • We're highly recommending all our staff and volunteers to take precautionary health measures by frequently washing their hands, staying home when they're sick, maintaining social distances, and being vigilant about cleaning their work areas at the beginning and end of their work days.

In these times of uncertainty, we will continue to keep FGC open and ready to welcome you all in. We will continue to provide the best experience possible for our customers. The highest priority for us is to continue to diligently work to protect everyone who come through the doors of FGC.

Like everyone else, we will continue to closely monitor this constantly evolving situation and will provide updates as needed.

All the best,

Juanette (Nette)
