xHain Hack- & Makespace is a physical space with a supportive community. We are welcoming to all with an inclusive mindset. We all benefit from shared resources. Through individual and collaborative projects, we encourage all to explore what each finds enjoyable, meaningful, and fun. The possibilities for growth are diverse and rewarding. We teach, we share, we learn.
Each member assesses their personal risks by themselves. There is no need to justify why a certain risk level is being perceived.
There are people who arrive at a high personal assessment of risk. This is fine.
There are people who arrive at a low personal assessment of risk. This is also fine.
Trying to convince another member that their risk assessment is wrong is pointless and not considered excellent.
There are people who will avoid xHain if there are no masks being worn.
There are people who will avoid xHain if masks are required.
There are people who will not avoid xHain in either case.
We want to make sure that members belonging to any of the groups mentioned above can visit xHain and have pleasant and fruitful interactions.
We want people to organise events.
We want people to visit xHain at events.

Check the interactive calendar to see which rule applies here.
Every member and guest of xhain should feel free to wear masks at any time inside the space.
We kindly ask members who are feeling unwell to not come to xhain. Please rest and recover before returning to the space.
Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays will have a mask mandate.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the mask mandate starts at 13h. Between 13h and 14h all HEPA filters will be turned on. Mandates end before sunrise on the next day.
The mask mandate requires FFP2 masks, being properly worn. There are exceptions for when people are drinking and/or eating inside xhain. We recommend turning on the HEPA filters when that's the case.
Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays have no mask requirements, but everyone should feel free to wear them.
Mondays are alternating. The first Monday to enforce a mask mandate is 2022-11-28 . After that, the next (2022-12-05) has no mandate, and so on.
The organiser of an event will declare the event to have a mask requirement or to have no mask requirement. This is recorded in the xHain calendar. For the time of the event, all other settings are overruled.
Open Mondays will follow the Monday rules. On Mondays with a mask requirement, FFP2 masks will be provided for guests who don't have one. If we run out, we'll have an exception during the Open Monday and provide surgical masks instead.
This rule set enters into effect on 2022-11-16
This rule set ceases to have effect on 2023-03-21
The Enting will evaluate the effects of these rules by the first week of January.
All persons entering xHain are encouraged to leave contact details with the event angels or check-in with the Corona-Warnapp.
