According to the Maricopa County Mask Ordinance, masks must be worn at all times in Thrive, as we are a “Place of public accommodation.” Additionally, the ordinance gives businesses the right to require even more stringent masking guidelines should they deem it necessary.
The Maricopa County ordinance is enforceable through education and with repeated notices, fines may be applied for non-compliance.
Please note that the Town of Gilbert mask ordinance expired leaving the Maricopa County ordinance in place until further notice which we realize may have caused some confusion.
In order for Thrive to remain open, and provide the safest and healthiest environment possible, until further notice, we are complying with the ordinance and members must at all times:
- Wear a mask upon entering Thrive
- Wear a mask when you are not seated at your desk. You may remove your mask while working but when getting up to go to the kitchen, restroom, etc. masks are required
- Maintain 6’ of distance when interacting with other members and if unable, ensure you are wearing a mask
- All guests must wear a mask upon entering
- Masks are provided at no cost for both guests and members.
- All staff will be wearing masks when in the space
Additionally, we are providing sanitation stations and encourage frequent hand-washing.
We realize that there are varying opinions regarding masks and that sadly, it has become politicized. At Thrive, we are working with our government and health officials and are following the Maricopa County Mask Ordinance of June 20, 2020 until further notice.
As a business serving the public, we must protect our members, our business and ensure that we will not face fines or shutdown due to non-compliance or sickness spreading at our space.
Thank you for your cooperation during this time! We realize that the spread of Covid-19 is lasting much longer than any of us felt and we can grow tired of the regulations; however, we have statewide closures and restrictions in place that are helping to reduce our cases and hospitalizations and at Thrive, we want to do our part in helping us to return to full capacity as soon as possible.
Please contact me with any questions and thank you for being the supportive community you all are!
The Gilbert Town Council has adopted an emergency order requiring the wearing of face coverings in public effective today, June 19, 2020 at 5 PM.
Under the emergency order, people are required to wear a face covering in the following circumstances:
▪️ When entering and while inside Town-owned buildings and facilities
▪️ In such indoor or outdoor places where persons are unable to maintain safe physical distancing (six or more feet separation) from others not of their own household.
The following exceptions are in place:
▪️ Those who cannot wear a face-covering due to a medical or behavioral condition
▪️ Children under 6 years of age
▪️ Restaurant patrons while they are dining
▪️ When complying with directions of law enforcement officers
▪️ In settings where it is not practical or feasible to wear a face covering, including when obtaining or rendering goods or services, such as the receipt of dental services or while swimming
▪️ Anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance
Local businesses that are open to the public are being asked to post signage at entrances and at other appropriate locations stating that customers (or visitors) are required to wear face coverings by order of the Gilbert Town Council.
Businesses can download sign options at glbrt.is/C19BizHelp.
The emergency order will remain in effect for 30 days or until modified or rescinded.

Due to an increase in web traffic, our website is experiencing intermittent issues. Thanks for your patience.
We are closed to the public but still open to members providing essential services or sole-proprietor businesses. We are enforcing a max capacity of 10 persons in the flex space at a time, complying with the current recommendations for businesses in Maricopa County. Members are still able to access the space by keycard at any time to retrieve anything needed to work or run their business. We will continue to take protective measures and update you as we have new information. Thank you!
The recommendations as of Friday, March 20, from Governor Ducey and Gilbert Mayor Daniels regarding businesses in Arizona has left us with the option to remain open with additional precautions. We recognize that many of you and others in the community may be required to work remotely, but may not have an ideal work environment at home.
For this reason, we have decided to remain open with some added precautionary measures:
- We are sanitizing all surfaces and door handles three times a day.
- By the CDC’s recommendation, we are limiting the amount of flex and desk workers in the space to 10 at a time.
- To comply with safe distancing, we encourage you to sit at least 6 feet apart from other members. If you have a desk next to or across from someone and wish to move to one of our other open desks, please let Braelyn know.
- To maintain additional safety and security, our doors are locked and the space is not hosted. Please email email@example.com if you need to be issued a keycard!
- If you or someone you live with has experienced symptoms of COVID-19, please see your doctor before returning to the space.
- We are adding a banner to both our member and public websites letting you know our latest COVID-19 updates. We will keep a page of updates that can be accessed via the link on the banner at any time.
That being said, we encourage you to continue to come to the space and work if you feel comfortable. We ask that you not come under the following circumstances:
- You or any member of your family exhibits symptoms of Covid-19 including cough, fever or headache
- You are high-risk or are a caregiver for anyone who is high risk
Please let your friends and colleagues know that Thrive is open with these restrictions and accepting new members (and get our sweet $40 referral credit when they sign up).

This is a great way for those at home with school-aged children to pop into the space for a few hours at a time whenever we can. Our punches can be purchased in any quantity from 5-15, and are valid for 6 months. Because our space is still not hosted at this time, we will email you after your purchase to set up a time to get a keycard.
