Break and Relax Rooms

Break and Relax Rooms

Dr. Bonnie Henry has extended her orders prohibiting social gatherings of any size with anyone other than your household bubble. Your “bubble” does not include your co-workers.

Physical distancing rules apply everywhere in our organization - this includes break rooms, cafeterias, coffee kiosks and entrances.

In order to increase the safe number of spaces to take breaks and eat your meals while physically distanced, the following break areas are now available for staff use:

Note: the availability of these rooms may change due to the possible surge of COVID-19 cases.
