Health officials: Go back to wearing your masks

Larimer County health officials are strongly recommending people, whether vaccinated or not, return to wearing a mask in public indoor spaces.

The county health department announced the new recommendation Wednesday afternoon, citing Larimer County’s high level of community transmission of COVID-19’s delta variant.

Additional COVID-19 Precautions


It is extremely important to us at desk chair Workspace to keep our members safe and our space clean. Coworking communities, as a service, thrive to allow professionals to have an area outside of their home or remote workplace to be productive as possible, and we want to be able to facilitate that need.

In order to help keep our facility functioning and safe, we have implemented some new changes to the building such as our new HVAC purifying system. While this may not be a feature we see on the day-to-day, it is extremely valuable to the health and well-being of our members and staff.

The pandemic has heightened all of our awareness surrounding health topics and daily activities that could put our health at risk.

Things we are doing: 


  • Blue light surface disinfector
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers
  • Sneeze guards in hot desk area
  • Mandatory maks in common areas
  • Socially distanced Dedicated Desk area
  • Motion censored lights and sinks
  • Air purifying system in the HVAC system

“GPS’ technologies are meant for “POP” The three primaiy contributors to poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) are: Particulates Odor & Pathogens.

Particulates: During the GPS cleaning process, air­borne particulates (dust, pet dander, pollen) are treated and theQ drawn together increasing their size and mass. Larger particulates are more easily captured effectively increasing the efficiency of a home’s air filters.

Odor & Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs ): During the GPS cleaning process, cooking odors, pet odors and chemical odors, (like formaldehyde) are broken down into basic compounds free of any smell.

"Health has always been, and will continue to be desk chair’s main priority throughout all COVID-19 regulations and beyond."

Laptop Ergonomics

If you’re a remote worker, you rely on your laptop. They’re a great tool for on-the-go productivity, but we’ve yet to see one that’s designed with any ergonomic sensibilities. That means you could be risking discomfort or carpal tunnel if you’re not paying attention to laptop ergonomics.

Desktop computers allow you to independently position your keyboard and your monitor for optimal wrist and neck positioning. Laptops don’t allow for that flexibility, forcing users to compromise ergonomics for portability. That means you’ll need to be aware of your posture when using your laptop:

  • Position your laptop on a surface that’s at or slightly below wrist level. Keep your elbows bent between 90 and 120 degrees when typing.
  • Shoulders should be relaxed and in normal sitting posture, not hunched or shrugged.
  • Relax your back, keeping your spine straight. If you’re working on your laptop for longer than an hour, find a place to sit that supports your back.
  • Sit with your feet flat on the floor, not dangling from the edge of a chair or sofa.

Laptop Ergonomics

Because of laptop design, it’s likely you’ll need to sacrifice posture in one area to preserve another. Always prioritize wrist position over neck and back posture: Your neck and back contains larger muscles that are less susceptible to strain. Ideally, you’ll find portable hardware that makes using a laptop more ergonomically ideal and allows your body to work at a more natural posture. While these accessories can be slightly unwieldy (watch for back strain when carrying heavy bags!), they’re very effective in reducing the physical strains of long-term laptop use.

  • Laptop Stand: A laptop stand lifts your computer off your work surface, allowing you to elevate the screen to be viewed without dipping your chin or leaning forward.
  • External keyboard: An add-on keyboard allows you to find optimal wrist and elbow position, and allows your arms and head to be positioned independently of one another.

Laptop ergonomics typically aren’t something you think about until aches and pains show up to tell you you’re not doing it correctly. With desk chair™ Workspace’s standard sit/stand desks and open work areas with sofas, comfy chairs, and patio space, you’ll always be able to find a place to work that suits your needs.
