To keep our farmers, producers, and shoppers safe, here are some steps we are taking and recommendations for shoppers.
Based on Executive Order 209 issued in April 2021:
Although not required, people who have not been fully vaccinated should wear a Face Covering outdoors when they cannot maintain at least six (6) feet of social distancing from non-household members, and all individuals should wear Face Coverings outdoors in crowded, dense, and higher-risk settings. (Face coverings are strongly recommended but not required.)
oCDC Director Rochelle Walensky said, “We continue to recommend masking in crowded outdoor settings and venues … where there is decreased ability to maintain physical distance and where many unvaccinated people may also be present.”
If you are experiencing symptoms such as fever or dry cough, stay home to take care of yourself and protect others if you are sick. When in doubt, err on the side of caution.
If you are an at-risk population (particularly older adults or immunocompromised individuals) we encourage you to prioritize your own health and minimize your exposure to people. Consider asking a friend or family member to pick up your market items for you.
Keep your market visit simple and short. Shop with a purpose and do not linger, socialize, or congregate in the market space.
