- NYC-based coworking company, Convene, will require proof of vaccination status for anyone entering a Convene venue from September 13, 2021.
- While Convene is not the first coworking operator to require vaccine proof for its staff, it is the first coworking company to implement a vaccine mandate for members and visitors.
- Anyone entering any of the locations will have to show their vaccine card, a photo of it, or a digital vaccine pass, along with a photo ID.
NYC-based coworking company, Convene, announced yesterday (Tuesday) that beginning September 13, 2021 it will require proof of vaccination status for all employees, clients, members, and guests who visit any of Convene’s venues.
While Convene is not the first coworking operator to require vaccine proof for its staff, it is the first coworking company to implement a vaccine mandate for members and visitors.
“Health and wellness are a key part of the Convene experience and we made this decision after consulting the guidance of the CDC, our healthcare partners at Eden Health, and the government entities at the local and federal level. This also builds upon the COVID-19 Operating Standards and Safety Protocols we released last year, which were endorsed by Ron Klain, President Biden’s Chief of Staff,” the company announcement read.

The new policy, beginning September 13, will require that everyone using Convene’s locations be fully vaccinated by October 4th of this year. “To enter our doors on October 4, visitors must have received their last dose by September 20.”
“As more people are vaccinated, the risk of this virus continuing to evolve will decline. I look forward to seeing the benefit of health, and freedom from the impacts of this virus, return to our communities. And to do so, we must use all the tools we have available to keep ourselves and families safe,” says Talia Poy, Eden Health, Nurse Practitioner and COVID Clinical Specialist.
A Convene spokesperson told Bisnow that the vaccine mandate will allow for some religious or medical exemptions. Ryan Simonetti, CEO and co-founder stated that the response to the new policy has been “overwhelmingly positive” so far.
Convene has locations in New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. Anyone entering any of the locations will have to show their vaccine card, a photo of it, or a digital vaccine pass, along with a photo ID.Share this article
