About COVID-19

For a general overview of the virus, specific information about avoiding and treating the illness, vaccine information and regular updates, we recommend the Vermont Department of Health website.

How Our Co-op is Responding

So much has changed in the last year. We adapted quickly to a new way of doing things, and our co-op community has been overwhelmingly supportive. Our team continues to work hard hard to provide a safe shopping experience. Here’s the latest from our General Manager. 

In April 2020, we installed plexiglass shields at cash registers and required masks of everyone entering the Co-op. These will remain in place for the forseeable future.

Facial coverings will be required at the Co-op until July 5th. This gives time for more of our community to complete the vaccination process and increase our comfort with relinquishing the practices that have kept us safe.

Our current hours are 9 am – 8 pm daily. The 9–10 am hour reserved for high-risk shoppers has ended.

On July 5 we will resume our regular hours of 8am-8pm.

We have increased the number of shoppers in the building at one time and will again in the coming weeks. On July 5 we will end limits on the number of shoppers in the store at one time.

There will continue to be hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and masks throughout the store.

We expect to re-open our food bar on July 5.   

We expect to reopen our café for indoor seating and resume offering food samples in early August.

We’re continuing to provide enhanced pay and benefits to our employees during this stressful time.

The Virus and Food

Currently, there is no evidence to support the transmission of COVID-19 associated with food. There are no reported cases of transmission from food products or packaging.
