Covid-19 Policies

Austin Free-Net is a nonprofit that provides crucial public access to information and communications technology and was the only public access computer lab in Austin available during 2020. In 2021 our services continue to be modified in response to COVID-19 and we comply with all City of Austin COVID-19 recommendations, guidelines and mandates. 



Our facilities have implemented the following necessary precautions to keep clients and staff safe:

  • Plexiglass is installed at the DeWitty public computer access lab

  • All customers and staff are required to wear masks (as of 8/12/21)

  • Equipment and computers are spaced a minimum of six feet apart and capacity will not exceed 50% until further notice

  • Sanitizing of technology equipment between uses and high touch areas

  • Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) including gloves and masks available as needed
