Updated Mask Requirements for the MRC 10/16/2020

To our valued members and customers;

Effective November 1st the Marsh River Cooperative will no longer be allowing entry for those who are unable/unwilling to wear facial coverings. This timeline may need to be revised as new information becomes available so please monitor our social media if you have any questions. This is due to a various array of reasons including but not limited to;

  1. As we get colder we will no longer be able to keep our doors open to have significant ventilation and air exchange.
  2. Recent updates in CDC guidance regarding aerosol transmission as a potential risk factor for COVID19 transmission. 

We very much wish to continue serving all of the general public and will continue to offer online ordering as well as disposable face masks at the front door free of charge. We may also be able to provide face shields in the near future.

We understand that there may be some that disagree with this decision but we must place the safety and wellness of our staff/volunteers (some of whom are in risk groups) and our customers as our utmost priority. We want them to remain healthy and safe so that the Co-op can continue to serve the community. 

We will be asking for 100% compliance with this policy and those individuals who violate the policy or give our staff/volunteers any trouble regarding it will be asked to leave the Co-op and not return until this policy is lifted. 

We want to thank everyone in advance for their cooperation in making sure that the Co-op stays open and viable.

  1. Oooh. Damn. I can’t believe people make such a stink! I’m sorry you all have to put up with this. And as I heard that 6 or 7 people at the Pentecostal church here in Brooks HAVE Corona, then you’d think it’d be a no-brainer! Stay well! Heléna
