Updated COVID-19 Reminders – Masks are now optional for shoppers – We are still following recommended safety protocols
The Pickens County rate of transmission has been low for a couple of weeks, so based on the current CDC and SC DHEC guidelines, we have made masks optional for shoppers. Day managers will decide whether volunteer workers will wear masks on their shifts. We are still following all of the recommended CDC guidelines and SC DHEC guidelines for keeping people safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, so we will reinstate the mask policy if the transmission rate increases again.
 What we ask you to do the following: If you are feeling sick at all (fever or not), Please do not come into the store. If you know you have been exposed to COVID-19, DO NOT come into the store.  The CDC guidelines call for staying home for at least 5 days after you’ve been exposed to someone with confirmed COVID-19.  See this link for more information on what to do if you contract COVID:  What to Do If You Are Sick | CDC
