We wear a mask for you, please wear a mask for us!

Your Co-op staff is exposed to hundreds of people every day, seven days a week. Although we perform daily measures to keep ourselves safe and the Co-op sanitized, one of the best ways to protect our staff is for you to wear a mask or face covering when you shop. Covering your nose and mouth helps our staff feel comfortable and safe while they are working to provide you the food you need.

In cooperation with CDC and Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Dept recommendations, Open Harvest is asking everyone age 5 and older to wear a mask while shopping. A face covering over nose and mouth can reduce the spread of COVID-19 in places like the aisles of the Co-op where social distancing is not always possible. As a courtesy, the Co-op has disposable masks available for free and will maintain this supply as much as possible.

If you are unable to wear a mask due to medical concerns or any other reason, we’d like to offer you curbside pick-up via online ordering. It is in our nature to accommodate our shoppers, however, if you refuse to wear a face covering inside, we will ask you to come back when you are able to wear one.

Direct your questions or concerns to a manager, so our staff on the floor can keep working on sanitizing and stocking our shelves.

Thank you for your cooperation, patience, and compassion as we continue to navigate this ever-evolving and challenging situation.

In cooperation,
Amy Tabor
General Manager
