Doing the Sale

COVID Safety

Friends School Plant Sale takes the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously and has made many changes to have a safe sale.

This is the basic outline of our full COVID preparedness plan as it affects shoppers:

  • The number of shoppers is being metered through an advance-signup system, which will also allow for contact tracing, if necessary. 
  • All volunteers and shoppers are required to wear masks over their nose and mouth when on the sale grounds unless inside an enclosed personal vehicle.
  • Mask is defined as: if sewn, consisting of at least two layers of material (no single-layer bandanas, scarves, or neck gaiters). If manufactured, a surgical mask or N-95-type mask that does not include a vent. Face shields can be used in addition to a mask, but not alone.
  • No food or drink is for sale on site.
  • Everyone is asked to maintain social distancing of at least six feet between people, whether volunteers or customers. 
  • Volunteers will go through health screening.  
  • Hand-sanitizer dispensers will be placed at entrances and other locations.

As state guidance from the Department of Health changes, our planning and official preparedness plan will also change.
