We’ve considered recent guidance from the CDC and the state. Masks are still required in the coop during open shopping hours, for all shiftworkers and shoppers, regardless of vaccination status.
The New York State Department of Health “strongly recommends that businesses require face coverings and six feet of social distancing in indoor settings where vaccination status of individuals is unknown.”
Rather than ask coop members to verify the vaccination status of everyone coming in the door, we’re keeping the above mask policy in place, with no exceptions.
Curbside pickup and delivery can be arranged as an alternative to shopping in store, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re also maintaining capacity restrictions and hand hygiene protocols. We’ll re-evaluate as local vaccination rates increase and will post any further updates.
We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and support.
