Current corona regulations at Happylab

Dear Happylab Community,

Lockdown number 4 is just around the corner ... In all the chaos of the last few days, however, we have positive news for you: The new regulation of the Ministry of Health enables us to keep Happylab open for you! According to §3 (1) Z 8 of the 5th COVID-19 Emergency Measures Ordinance you may leave your own living area to visit Happylab.

Here is an overview of the Corona regulations at Happylab from November 22nd, 2021:

  • Access to Happylab is only permitted with a valid 2G proof. Wearing an FFP2 mask is mandatory at Happylab. A minimum distance of 2 m must be kept from people who do not live in the same household. Please also adhere to all common hygiene measures and stay at home if you feel sick so that Happylab remains a safe place to work.
  • Until further notice, there will be no guided tours, training courses and workshops for groups. The following alternatives are available to you:
    • After making an appointment, you can come by for a free visit and take a look around our lab. You can book an appointment here!
    • Individual trainings for our machines can still be booked with our lab managers. You can book an appointment here!
    • Instead of face-to-face trainings, you can also take an online test in the Happylab member portal for most of our machines. The video tutorials on our YouTube channel and the information in our Happylab Wiki serve as a learning template. After successfully completing the online tests, you will be automatically activated for the corresponding machine!
  • The shop at Happylab remains closed, but we are still there for you via our online shop! The ordered items will be deposited in the lab for you to pick up.
  • A reservation recommendation for the machines in the Happylab still applies in order to avoid crowds and queues. Happylab members who don’t have any reservation hours included in their tariff will receive one free reservation hour per day until further notice! However, booked but not used reservation hours will be charged to ensure that resources are used fairly.

We will support you as much as possible in the implementation of your projects even during the lockdown! All the best for the coming time & stay healthy!

The Happylab team
