Covid-19 and CoLab

Updated: Jun 11

In an effort to practice social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, CoLab will be closed beginning Friday, March 13, 2020, at 12 p.m.


This decision did not come lightly as our space and mission are dedicated to creating community and connectedness, but we truly believe that it is imperative to take these precautions at this time.


UPDATE 3.23.2020: As you may have heard, Governor Tony Evers has announced he will be putting a “safer-at home” order in place in the coming days and is requiring the close of businesses that are deemed nonessential. This does include CoLab’s physical coworking space which up until this point was accessible by members.
