As many of you are aware Schools and Colleges throughout Pennsylvania are temporarily closing campuses and taking other actions to help limit the spread of the Corona Virus. This includes the host of our facility, Thaddeus Stevens. Effective today at 6PM, Thaddeus Stevens will be closing all buildings on campus including limiting access to their teaching staff. At make717 we will be complying with this closure.
Consequently, effective Friday, March 13th at 6PM, make717 will be closed to all members including holders of 24/7 privileges.
We anticipate reopening to 24/7 members as soon as Lancaster County is moved from "red" to "yellow". After a period of time, likely 30 days, we will then Maker in Charge coverage and access for primetime members. After another period of time, we will restart equipment orientations and other make717 sponsored events.
Please note that we plan to extend the billing date for the next membership renewal to equal the amount of time we are closed or limiting access.
Stay tuned for updates.
