Effective Monday, June 14th, 2021

Dear Co-op Members and Customers,

Firstly, we want to thank you all for being so patient this past year and a half, and for continuing to shop with us. We wouldn't exist without you and we are so thankful for your support.

There have been a lot of changes to our store over the course of this pandemic, with addition of Curbside Shopping as well as mask mandates and other shopping restrictions. For the health and safety of our staff and shoppers, we erred on the side of caution, and we're glad we did. But we've decided that it's time to ease some of our restrictions.

Going forward, vaccinated customers will still be encouraged to wear a mask within the store, but it is no longer required. Unvaccinated customers will still be required to wear a mask. Staff will continue to wear masks. The customer capacity will be raised to 20, though we will ask people to continue to keep their distance whenever possible.

Our protocols will likely continue to change as we move forward into summer, so please continue to be patient with us as we do our best to adapt.

Sincerely,
Upper Valley Food Co-op Management and Staff
