    What is 1440 Multiversity doing to address Coronavirus concerns?
    The health, security, safety and well-being of guests and employees are 1440 Multiversity campus priorities. 1440 closely follows alerts and information disseminated by the CDC, WHO and the Department of State each day, and continually amends safety protocol in keeping with state mandates and recommendations. For the detailed steps that 1440 takes to protect all on campus, please review the Campus Health & Safety Plan. What is 1440 Multiversity doing to address Coronavirus concerns?

    • 1440 follows California law which only allows persons with disabilities to bring trained service dogs and psychiatric service dogs to campus. The protections discussed previously do not apply to emotional support animals or personal pets. California law, like federal law, does not require that emotional support animals or family pets be allowed in public places therefore 1440 only allows trained pets on campus to accommodate guests with disabilities   
    • Individuals who have service animals are not exempt from and must comply with local city animal control and public health requirements, so please be sure your service animal meets all vaccination requirements and is properly registered and licensed. 
    • In California, an assistive animal means a trained animal that is necessary as a reasonable accommodation for a person with a disability and includes guide dogs, signal dogs, service dogs and psychiatric service dogs. Only a dog that is trained to recognize and respond to an individual's disability-related need for assistance can be considered a service dog.
    • California law allows business owners to require that an assistive animal be (i) free from offensive odors and displays appropriate habits (for example, is potty-trained) and (ii) does not engage in behavior that endangers the health or safety of the individual with a disability or others around them. 
    • Since the ADA does not require service animals to wear a vest, ID tag or specific harness, it may not be obvious to the 1440 staff that your dog is a service animal. In such cases, we have the legal right to ask you the following two specific questions in support of your well-being:
      • Is the dog a service animal required because of a disability?
      • What work or task has the dog been trained to perform?
    • As the animal handler, you are required to be in control of your service animal at all times. You are also responsible for caring for and supervising the service animal, which includes toileting; feeding; and grooming and veterinary care. 1440 is not obligated to supervise or otherwise care for any service animal.
    • The service animal must be harnessed, leashed or tethered while in public places unless these devices interfere with the service animal's work or the person's disability prevents use of these devices.
    • Seating, food and drink are provided for customer use only. The ADA gives a person with a disability the right to be accompanied by his or her service animal but 1440 is not required to, nor does it allow, a service animal to sit or be fed at the table.
    • While 1440 does not charge guests any sort of fee for housing your service dog or cleaning its hair and dander, we will assess and charge you for any damage to the room or campus your service animal may cause as we would any other guest.

    Can a friend or family member stop by to visit me while I am at a program?

    Can a friend or family member stop by to visit me while I am at a program?

    Unfortunately not. Because 1440 must follow established exemption guidelines, we cannot allow visitors to campus, nor can we sell or offer services to anyone that is not a registered attendee. Out of the respect and privacy of those who are immersed in learning, we require all guests to register at the Lodge upon arrival and only such guests are allowed on campus. 1440 strictly abides by and enforces criminal trespass laws as outlined in California Penal Code 602 PC which can lead to penalties of up to six (6) months in county jail and/or a fine up to $1,000.00 if you are caught trespassing. If you wish to meet someone who is not registered, you must do so at a location off-campus.

    Can locals or visitors come to campus and enjoy the facilities and trails?
    Unfortunately not. 1440 is a private campus, however, we occasionally offer Community Learning Events and programs for locals and a calendar of such events is available on the homepage of 1440.org. Aside from these events, the campus is not accessible or open to any non-registered guests. 1440 does not offer campus tours and the trails and amenities are only available to those registered to learn here. 1440 strictly abides by this policy for the safety of all guests and enforces criminal trespass laws as outlined in California Penal Code 602 PC which can lead to penalties of up to six (6) months in county jail and/or a fine up to $1,000.00.

    1440 Multiversity imposes a strict non-smoking, non-vaping, tobacco-free and cannabis-free policy throughout the campus. 1440 complies with California's Statewide Smoke-Free Air Law, long leading the way in adopting strong and innovative smoke-free air laws that protect people from secondhand smoke exposure. In keeping with the vision of creating hope for living well, 1440 Multiversity recognizes its obligation to create a healthy environment for all; therefore, the implementation of a no tobacco/vaping/cannabis and smoke-free campus policy for visitors and team members allows everyone to pursue their work and educational goals. The policy includes the prohibition of smoking cigarettes, vaping pens, pipes, cigars and other tobacco products as well as any other substance. The use of cannabis (including edibles) and smokeless tobacco products (i.e., chewing tobacco, snuff, etc.) and the use of electronic smoking devices (e.g., vape pens and e-cigarettes) are also prohibited. To mitigate the risk of fire or any related damage caused by fire, no open flame is allowed anywhere on campus, including in vehicles and parking areas. Guests who wish to smoke or vape should do so off campus. Am I allowed to smoke on campus?
