Staff at the centers are practicing extensive safety precautions and encouraging customers to also follow

certain safety procedures. Staff members wear masks and face shields, adhere to social distancing, regularly wash and sanitize their hands, cover their mouths when coughing or sneezing, and avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth.

Customers are asked to wear masks, if they have them, and encouraged to adhere to a social

distancing protocol and practice hygiene measures once inside a center.

Staff and customers are encouraged to self-screen. Any staff member or customer who has COVID-19 symptoms or an elevated temperature of 100.4 or greater will be asked not to enter a center.

Because of the safety precautions, walk-in customer capacity will be limited.
