In accordance with the Washington, D.C. reopening phase plan and CDC guidelines Podcast Village has reopened its Georgetown studios located at 2300 Wisconsin Ave. NW, Ste. 400B and Downtown studio located at 1900 M St. NW, Ste. 400, with the proper phase 1 COVID-19 safeguard strategies in place.
Please Note: We have added Dr. Jose Luis Zeballos as an outside consultant to help aid our team with the best practices and countermeasures. Dr. Zeballos worked for over 25 years as an epidemiologist at the Pan American Health Organization / World Health Organization.
Below is our new protocol for productions and office engagement.
Health Screenings: We are currently operating with essential only personnel on site for productions with all others teleworking. For on site staff, we are conducting daily temperature and symptom monitoring upon arrival.
Masks/Face Coverings: Masks or face coverings are now required in all common areas of our Georgetown and Downtown studios. This includes the main lobby of the studios entrance, elevators, restrooms, stairwells, loading area, and hallways. Guests may remove masks once seated in the studio.
Contactless In Studio Experience: Clients will be granted access to our Georgetown studios via remote access by ringing the doorbell located on the outside of our suite (400B) on the 4th floor. Clients will be told in advance which studio they will be in (A, B, or C) and asked to go directly to their designated studio upon arrival. The engineer will be in the control room and will only enter the studio if necessary to adjust lighting.
Physical Distancing Measures: Studios are limited to two persons at a time with a minimum of six (6) feet between them. Seats will be clearly marked for clients and guests.
Cleaning Procedures: The building cleaning crew wipes down and disinfects high touch points, including door handles, safety railings, elevators, and restrooms. Podcast Village staff wipes down and disinfects studios and all high touch points inside and outside of our suites before and after client visits.
In addition to the added cleaning measures we are taking, we are …
- Adding additional time between client visits and limiting the number of persons allowed in our space at any one time to allow for safe distancing.
- Providing each client with their own microphone windscreen that will be used for their sessions and stored at our studios.
- We also have hand sanitizer stations and complimentary disposable gloves and face masks.
Our focus is to continue to protect our production partners as well our essential personnel as we transition back into normal business. We will continue to monitor this situation closely.
