The people who work in our markets continue their extraordinary work. We are profoundly grateful for their commitment and resilience as they serve the essential needs of our communities and keep our markets safe for all. We are doing all we can as a small business to keep them safe and to recognize their extraordinary efforts during this time.
- Appreciation pay: All market staff is receiving appreciation pay and an extension of their expanded employee discount.
- Staying home: We remind employees that if they feel ill, they need to stay home and may use their sick pay or vacation pay. We fully support and respect any who choose to take a leave of absence during this time.
- Testing positive: With the guidance of local health authorities, we have action plans when any of our employees test positive for COVID-19, including notifying our entire staff. Any employee mandated by a medical professional or health agency to quarantine because they tested positive for COVID-19 or were in close proximity to someone who tested positive receives up to 10 days of full compensation.
