An occupancy limit of 30 with a six-foot distancing between customers'
requirement is being implemented, especially at the register and when
donating at the garage.

minimum. There will be lines marked out for the appropriate distance near
the register, along with the aisles being marked as one way only.

everyone for their cooperation in keeping their employees and customers
safe during this time.
