COVID-19 Update

Last updated: 2nd April 2020

Ikigai Nairobi is dedicated to the health and safety of our members, team and the wider community. As such we are closely monitoring what is happening globally and recently, nationally. It is important to us that we keep our community updated on the measures and policies we are implementing to ensure Ikigai Nairobi remains a safe working environment for all.

Temporary Closure of Ikigai Nairobi Spaces

As per the directive of Hon. Mutahi Kagwe, on 24th March 2020, we decided to temporarily close our spaces until further notice. Our spaces remain fully open to members but closed to the public. We will maintain a small team onsite to ensure a safe working environment for all. Although our team will be working from home, the Ikigai team remains fully available on email and on phone.

Keeping the Ikigai Community Safe

We ask members who experience flu-like symptoms (coughing, sore throat, headache, difficulty breathing) to work from home until they are free of symptoms for at least 24 to 48 hours without the use of fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medication.

Additionally, if members have been in recent contact with a person who has recently travelled to a country with a high number of Coronavirus or been in contact with a person infected with Coronavirus, we encourage members to stay home and self-quarantine.

If you suspect that you may have the Coronavirus, please inform the Ikigai team so we can advise you on the next steps.


Cleaning & Safety

Ikigai has done the following to prevent cases and the spread of the Coronavirus in the Ikigai Community:

  • Placed anti-bacterial hand sanitizers throughout our locations for easy access to members.
  • Effected regular and thorough cleaning of the spaces with alcohol based anti-bacterial cleaning materials
  • Circulated information regarding the Coronavirus to Ikigai members via email, online portal, noticeboard posters and flyers throughout our spaces.
  • Canceled all events, social gatherings and non-members meetings at Ikigai locations for the foreseeable future.
  • Contacted all Ikigai suppliers to ensure that they are closely observing Coronavirus prevention processes for their staff.
  • Ensured good ventilation in our spaces and urged members to work from our garden locations to practice social distancing.
  • Restricted non-essential local and international travel for all Ikigai staff.
  • Made our locations "Hand-shake free zones".

It will take the whole community working together to keep each other safe and healthy during this period. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Ikigai team via email or phone.
