TVCOG limits public use of its facility during Coronavirus

Important Notice from Tech Valley Center of Gravity (TVCOG) on Coronavirus (COVID-19) Regarding Public Use of TVCOG Facilities:

As an extra health precaution, we are limiting public use of TVCOG facilities, and will be temporarily closed to the public for social night, tours, and events, until further notice. First Lego Lego League’s final team meetings on 03/13 and their banquet on 03/20 are cancelled and will be rescheduled.

Signs will be posted at the entrance of the facility indicating the temporary public closure, and directing them to the website.

Only members (and their supervised guests) will be allowed in TVCOG (this includes Tech Valley Game Space members). 

If you are not feeling well, or have been in contact with a person with COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have been at a public event that is correlated with a known case of COVID-19, please stay home.

Members should be advised that older adults and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions like heart of lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness. Please consult with your health care provider about additional steps you may be able to take to protect yourself. We are aware of several members who have compromised immune systems and ask that all members be mindful of their interactions within the facility.

Again, members are allowed to use the facility and in additional precaution to our temporary public closure, TVCOG has provided a new clean station area (in addition to existing bathroom and sink areas that are already supplied with hand soap). The clean station has disinfectant spray, paper towels, and hand soap or antibacterial wipes available. Please wash down tables and hand tools before and after you use them, so that you can ensure the station’s cleanliness for your own use and that of other members. If a station is out of supplies, please alert staff in person or at [email protected].

Our currently scheduled classes at TVCOG are not cancelled. As our classes are very small, and generally composed of members, we believe that continuing them poses minimal risk to the community. However, we will be offering refunds for registrants who would prefer to reschedule.

The TVCOG Board of Directors and Staff will continue to monitor the status of Coronavirus (COVID-19), updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and will post public updates on our website at

Please help mitigate the spread of COVID-19: sanitize diligently, wash hands regularly (for at least 20 seconds), and stay home if you feel sick.
