Coos Head Food Co-Op

Updated 07/06/2021

Coos Head Food Co-op encourages masks but is lifting the requirement due to new state guidelines. We realize this will come as good news to many, and some may find it uncomfortable. There are community members who cannot receive the vaccine due to weakened immune systems, age, or other reasons. With that in mind, we encourage mask-wearing and social distancing at the co-op.

The decision to continue wearing masks is at the discretion of each co-op customer and employee. We ask that you please be respectful of the personal decisions others make. We recognize that this will continue to evolve over time. At this time:

  •          Co-op Shoppers and Employee will now have a choice
  •          Coos Head Food Co-op will continue to encourage mask and social distancing when shopping the Co-op
  •          Coos Head Food Co-op will continue to have an early shopping time, and curb side assistance for those with compromised immune systems.
    Early Shop at the co-op will take place on Tuesday and Thursday from 8AM to 9AM. Face masks will be required during this window.  

As Oregon reaches a 70% vaccination rate, the governor is ending most Covid-19 restrictions, including the statewide mask mandate. The Centers for Disease Control states fully vaccinated people may resume activities without wearing a mask or social distancing but advises the unvaccinated to continue wearing a mask.

The health of co-op shoppers and staff have been a priority throughout the pandemic. Many safety precautions will remain, and we will continue to be responsive to any future changes or guidance around masks and distancing.

After more than a year of COVID-19 measures, we acknowledge removing the mask requirement is a significant change. We thank you for supporting the co-op as we've responded and adapted to the pandemic. We are hopeful our community will continue to progress in a healthy way and welcome you to our store!
