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."

Meet Colby Gergen

Q : Tell us a little about your career and journey

C: I thought I was going to be a developer so I taught myself PHP (scripting language) a decade ago. I hated squashing the bugs I created and I knew I couldn’t be a graphic designer for a lack of being able to match colors. I knew I wanted to stay around software, but I fell into product management and UX before even knowing what those disciplines did. As I realized that my joy and skills were in UX and research, I shifted in that direction. Today, I’m an independent contractor that produces research and user experience work for my clients ranging from startups to large corporations.

Q : Give us your elevator pitch – describe your business in a few words and how you got the name.

C: I work with companies to help understand how their product or service is situated within their customer's lives, then build ways for them to be better and more valuable to their customers. Recently I’ve partnered closely with old friends at a small studio (yes, ASS) - the concept is that we are a small studio that works within companies. We are not an agency that is interested in working with a lot of clients, having levels of managers, etc. – we work with select companies and add our skills to their teams.

Q : Have you always wanted to be doing what you are doing now?

C: A little bit – I went to school for sociology and advertising, knowing that I wanted to learn how people operate and use that knowledge somehow. I decided my senior year that I didn’t want to do advertising and at that point I knew I wanted to be a part of building software that can make an impact. I just needed to find the role that I liked.

Q : How did you decide to choose coworking and what is your favorite part about it?

C: Coworking works well with my lifestyle. I enjoy traveling and being on the move. Coworking makes it is easy for me to find a place to work wherever I go. They also are a great way to create community because I have always worked remotely and/or independently.

Q : How did you hear about desk chair workspace?

C: Truthfully this is the only place that was available in Loveland. I could have worked from home, but I checked out the building. I was really happy to get a desk here.

Q : What is your favorite part about desk chair workspace?

C: The people that I have met here! Honestly. I really like the companies that are here - it’s a really cool variety. I have worked in other coworking spaces that are heavily focused on tech or startups and that gets nauseating at times. It’s great to network but I also like to get to know people on a more natural level. I like the variety.

Q : If you could have a drink with anyone, who would it be?

C: Terry Gross – she is the host of “fresh air” and she is an amazing interviewer. She has interviewed everyone under the sun and her conversations are great. She has a talent for getting really interesting topics flowing.

Q : What do you like to do for fun?

C: Anything outdoors - why else does someone move to Colorado? Also any live show or theater, storytelling, music, spending time with friends. Books are cool!

Q : Besides your own, what is your favorite local business?

C: I have three - Dark Heart coffee bar {my semiofficial living room}, Little Piece of my Heart, and White Groves Barbershop and Tap Room.

Q Share something exciting with us

My plan was to spend 3 or so months in a variety of cities over the next year or two. After 3 months of being in Loveland, I have decided to stay for a while!
