As your local grocer, our primary concern is to provide a safe and healthy environment for you to shop and for our employees to provide you a first-class shopping experience. We have taken additional measures at our stores to protect you, your families, and our employees from the spread of COVID-19. As part of those efforts, all guests and employees must wear a face covering that covers the mouth and nose while at our stores. This requirement does not apply to children under age 2 or individuals unable to wear face coverings due to medical conditions preventing the use of face coverings.
As an essential business, we are committed to staying open and available to our guests during this crisis. We believe the added safety of wearing face coverings is worth any inconvenience. We need your full cooperation and compliance to make our efforts effective. As we work together to stay safe and healthy, we ask our guests to be kind to one another as we all do our part to take care of our communities.
The use of face coverings at our stores should be combined with continued social distancing and personal hygiene as recommended by the CDC. Public health guidelines and restrictions regarding COVID-19 are changing rapidly as new information becomes available. We will continue to monitor new information and adapt to changing circumstances. It is our commitment to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our guests and employees.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation, and we are grateful you continue to shop with us.
