Face Mask Policy Update
Dear Customer –
It has been a long 4 months! Hard to imagine things getting back to normal…
The bad news? Wisconsin and the nation are both seeing a resurgence in the number of Covid-19 cases, and now are setting daily records. While overall death rates have remained lower than earlier in the pandemic, hospitals in various parts of the country are again being stressed by those with the worst symptoms.
The good news? Scientists and medical professionals have been able to study the virus and have a better handle on how to deal with patients and how best to avoid contraction of Covid-19. Washing of hands, social distancing, self-quarantining when ill, sanitizing surfaces – these all remain must-do’s to help decrease the risk of getting/spreading the virus, but perhaps the best way is to wear a mask when out in public. In fact, it also appears that for those who do get the virus despite wearing a mask, symptoms can be less and/or they have a better chance of being asymptomatic.
Given the severity of the current upsurge, and following the guidance from the CDC, medical professionals and the highest levels of our government, we will be instituting a mandatory face mask-wearing rule for customers (5 and over) beginning Tuesday, July 21st.
Please have your face mask on whenever you enter the building. While we will not have free face masks to hand out to those who forget their masks, we will have some for sale if you prefer not to come back at a different day or time.
We do also know that there are those who can’t wear a face mask due to medical reasons, and for you we will have 2 days each week, Monday & Friday, when face masks will be optional for customers. We still strongly recommend shoppers those days do wear face masks.
For those dining with us, your face masks are not needed while you are seated at our dining tables inside. Please do wear them anytime you are walking about the store or café however, and continue to socially distance even when you are wearing your mask. If you are seated outside, face masks are optional.
As a reminder, we offer our Good Harvest To Go online shopping 4 days each week, as well as daily curbside pick-up orders for the Harvest Café.
Your health, as well as the health of our employees and other guests is very important to us, and we want to continue being your source of healthy foods and products and a place to feel safe as you shop and dine.
