COVID Safety Policies

The Fourth Place exists to create a space where people can feel at home, and to do that responsibly in an indoor space means making sure that everyone can share that space without risk to their health.

Vaccination Policy

All staff, guests, and others in the space while open must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

Starting in January 2023, we also require a COVID vaccine or booster within six months if you are eligible.

Anyone with a legitimate medical exemption is not required to be vaccinated, but must remain masked. This does not include exceptions for personal beliefs about vaccination.

Masking Policy

In addition, we require everyone to be masked— but masks become optional if you present valid proof of full vaccination to a staff member.

We provide free KF-94 (N-95 class) masks to anyone who needs or wants one.

Exposure and Symptoms

Anyone who has had exposure to someone with a COVID-19 infection, or has had COVID, flu, or cold symptoms within seven days, is asked not to enter the space unless you have had two negative COVID tests at least 48 hours apart since symptoms or exposure.

Safe Environment Policy

We respect your personal beliefs, and ask you to respect our responsibility to keep our community safe and business open. We reserve the right to refuse business or entry to anyone creating an unsafe environment by arguing with our safety policies or spreading false information in our store. (In other words: Argue with our COVID policies in the store, and you will be asked to leave and not welcome back.)
