As per the updated guidance from the CDC and OHA, the Co-op strongly encourages face coverings for all shoppers regardless of vaccination status.
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.
In light of the updated guidance from OHA and OSHA, Medford Food Co-op will continue to require face coverings in both the store and the Café. It is an unreasonable burden for staff to check the vaccination status of each and every customer, and the Co-op does not have the resources to question every shopper prior to offering our services.
In 2017, we created the Medford Food Co-op Cooperative Community Fund (MCCF) as a permanent endowment within the Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation. Money contributed to our fund by our Co-op, our suppliers, and our owners will grow the fund.
As local infection rates continue at elevated levels, we want to keep the community updated on our current policies and procedures.
