As the novel coronavirus continues to call for increased preventative measures, we know it’s not always easy to practice social distancing in shared living spaces. Coliving concepts are feeling challenged by the task of keeping everyone healthy and distanced while maintaining some degree of normalcy and productivity. The shelter-in-place requirements make it difficult for some residents to know how to operate. We just published an article with a public health expert on all the wellness measures you can take, so this piece is more about what to do in all that downtime. We’ll also explore the pros and cons of being alone vs. with a tribe during times like these.

With everything that’s going on surrounding the recent COVID-19 outbreak, the fear and concern is bringing even more confusion to this challenge. So many people are left asking: What can I do to stay well? How do I avoid unnecessary exposure in a coliving or shared housing environment? These are important questions that deserve a professional’s response. In this piece, the team here at Kndrd decided to reach out to our good friend, Naomi Walski. She has a Masters’ in Public Health (MPH) and Environmental Health. She is currently an Industrial Hygienist at the County of San Diego. Naomi was kind enough to jump in and go over best practices during this time.
As the coliving industry continues to grow, so too does the variation of members & demographics that it serves. Long gone are the days of coliving being strictly limited to the stereotypical young 20-something millennial working in the big city. Nowadays, there really is something for everyone. But what exactly are they? That’s the answer we’re about to explore.
Want to hear something that just doesn’t make sense? Legacy PMS systems were built with just the LANDLORD in mind. But it's 2020. Also, we shake our heads at the fact that some of the largest property management solutions have a CLOSED API…. Seriously?!?
When you set out to start a coliving space, you’re probably motivated by the exciting promise of a bonded tribe, affordable amenities, business expansion, and the potential for cost-free rent. While all these (and more) are totally possible, they can only be met by implementing smart methods. By taking in these quick pointers, you can create the BEST possible home that’s set up for optimal success.
