Update: The co-op does not intend to verify vaccination status at this time and will continue requiring masks for everyone over two years of age. We appreciate your continued cooperation wearing a face covering over your nose and mouth and keeping six-feet of distance between shoppers and staff.
The Oregon Health Authority said businesses that remove mask and physical distancing requirements must seek proof of Covid-19 vaccination. Our staff does not have capacity to monitor the inoculation status of all our shoppers. Under OHA rules, that means we need to continue masking up.
Since the CDC and State of Oregon recently eased mask guidelines, we’ve heard mostly positive feedback about keeping the co-op’s mask policy in place. The co-op has maintained a safe shopping and work environment throughout the pandemic and plans to gradually unwind pandemic protocols.
Please direct any feedback on this issue to General Manager Matt Stanley at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your cooperation!
