The New Work Normal with the COVID Vaccine

New Normal COVID Vaccine | Alkaloid Networks

UPDATED December 1, 2021

EVERYONE, including those vaccinated, needs to wear a mask when indoors at Alkaloid Networks. It is optional to wear them only while seated, in a conference room or a private office. 

Per my promise to follow CDC guidelines, we are entering the new work normal at Alkaloid Networks. Regardless of if you are fully vaccinated, you DO need to wear a mask inside the Alkaloid Networks community.

I am aware that the mayor lifted mask requirements a few weeks ago and have been closely watching the status of Fulton County. For the moment, we’re going to keep wearing masks (probably until we are past the holiday season just to be on the safe side).

You can read the whole CDC guidelines update here.

We’re all adults here so I trust that those of you that need to wear masks in the appropriate locations within the community.

Of course, this CDC policy could change but I’m keeping with my commitment to staying within CDC recommendations.

Community Commitment

While face coverings may be required, there are still plenty of things that we, as a community, will continue to do to support each other.

Section 1: Alkaloid Networks Precautions (What I’m Doing)

Surface Cleaning

More Frequent Cleaning

The frequency of cleaning of common spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms will be maintained. (Offices and trash will be attended to on the weekends.)

Nanoseptic Door Handle Wraps & Switch Covers

Nanoseptic wraps will stay on all exterior door handles and light switches.

Environmental Treatment


Higher quality HEPA filters will continue to be used with the new, more frequent, changing schedule put in place in 2020.

Air Scrubbers

Our new friends, the air purifiers, are staying and operating 24/7.


We almost tripled the number of live plants throughout the space in 2020. It’s nice isn’t it?

Tours and Events


All visitors are required to follow our community guidelines regarding face coverings.


Monthly in-person events have resumed; including the popular coffee club and Friday evening happy hour. We are holding these events outside on the patio when the weather permits.

Distancing Enhancements

Desk Dividers

Clear desk dividers will remain in place.


Hand Sanitizer

Dispensers will be located at the three exterior entrances and throughout the space.

Exposure Response Plan

It’s still important to have a plan in the event of possible COVID-19 exposure just in case.

Section 2: Alkaloid Member Guidelines (What I Ask of You)

New Normal COVID VaccineMembers MUST:

  • If you need to wear a mask (see above), please make sure you have it on when you are up and about – entering, exiting or using any common spaces. Masks are not needed while sitting at your desk or in your private office. If you do not have a mask, please ask for one.
  • Be considerate when you are up and about. Not everyone has (or can) get a vaccine. Give space if you are unsure.
  • Avoid handshakes, high-fives, or other physical contact until you confirm with the other person that it is ok with them.
  • Inform any visitors of these guidelines.

Shared Desks

  • Clean the desk and area when you are done using the disinfectant spray and paper towels provided. This includes the phone nook in the Central Wing.

Conference Rooms

  • All chairs have been returned.
  • Clean the conference rooms when you are done using the disinfectant spray and paper towels provided.

CDC Updates

As always, I will watch for any changes to CDC guidelines and update you when there are changes.

Thank you for being a part of this community and your support during this shared challenge.
