To Everyone's Health!

Updated 04/9/20

Dear NEOC friends,


As the planet continues to respond to COVID-19 and we head further into the spring, the team here at the New England Ocean Cluster remains closely focused on updates and guidelines put forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO),  and regional health authorities. We are committed to ensuring that all of our operations are managed in a manner that prioritizes community and employee health!


In accordance with Governor Mills's extended Covid-19 health guidelines requesting non-essential businesses remain closed, we will be keeping the doors to the Hús shut until guidelines change. As always, we will monitor all briefings and announcements and modify our approach with the health and safety of our clients, employees, and community in mind.

Updates for Our Community on Events & Programming
  • With the help of our members, tenants and collaborators, we will modify previously arranged programming with public health and safety in mind

  • We are committed to adaptation and excited to find new ways to engage with our clients and audiences throughout COVID-19’s period of heightened caution

  • In the Hús, we are routinely cleaning all frequently touched surfaces, including countertops, tables and doorknobs with approved disinfectants

  • We’ll continue to arrange small tours for those interested in seeing the space, please send a note to


Below are a few preventive measures we all should follow
  • Limit handshakes and hugs, opt for fist and elbow bumps, it’s kind of fun to do this with colleagues

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and dispose of the tissue promptly after use

  • Wash the tops and bottoms of your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth as much as possible

  • Let’s remember that even though the presence of the virus has changed the way the world operates, we can still treat one another with kindness. It’s very easy to do.  We also believe you can startup in the midst of things slowing down. 

We'll share all event related notifications and updates via social media!
