Nearly 70% of all Oregonians 18 and older have received a first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine! In accordance with the most recent state guidelines, MFC will no longer enforce face coverings for shoppers or staff members beginning Wednesday, June 30th.
Recognizing that COVID-19 will still be present in our communities and that many Oregonians remain unvaccinated, we highly recommend that unvaccinated individuals and other vulnerable people continue to wear masks and practice other health and safety measures to stay safe from COVID-19. MFC staff will not check the vaccination status of shoppers who choose not to wear a mask.
For the time being, plexiglass barriers will remain in place at the check stands. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the store: outside the entrance of the store to the left of the carts; just inside the entrance of the Café; in the bulk department; and outside the in-store restrooms. Sanitary wipes are available for wiping down carts and basket handles.
We will continue to offer curbside pick-up for any and all shoppers that would like to use our service. In order to continue our curbside service, MFC will charge a $10 service fee for each online order, beginning July 1st.
We welcome shoppers to use their clean, reusable shopping totes, as well as produce and bulk bags. As of July 1st, MFC will reinstate the 5¢ fee for each paper bag at checkout.
The Café is now fully open for indoor seating, with take-out and outdoor seating options still available.
Please be kind to each other as we navigate the process of reopening. We ask that all shoppers treat staff and fellow community members with respect and please refrain from expressing grudges or impolite comments about guidelines or those that choose to continue to wear face coverings.
The Co-op will continue to monitor CDC, OHA, and OSHA guidelines and will regularly evaluate our policies as more information becomes available. If you have any questions regarding our current policies, please contact the General Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
