Mask Policy

It is your right not to wear a mask, but if that is your choice, it is also our right to not allow you in our place of business. Please comply with wearing an approved mask, and wearing it properly.

Types of Face Coverings

  • Types of face coverings can include a paper or disposable mask, a cloth mask, a neck gaiter, a scarf, a bandanna, or a religious face covering.

  • A face covering must cover the nose and mouth completely. The covering should not be overly tight or restrictive and should feel comfortable to wear.

  • Any mask that incorporates a valve that is designed to facilitate easy exhaling, mesh masks, or masks with openings, holes, visible gaps in the design or material, or vents are not sufficient face coverings because they allow droplets to be released from the mask.

  • A face covering is not a substitute for social distancing, but is especially important in situations when maintaining at least a 6-foot distance from other individuals who are not members of the same household is not possible.

  • It is not known whether face shields (a clear plastic barrier that covers the face) provide the same source control for droplets as face masks, but they may be an option in situations where wearing a face mask is problematic. For optimal protection, the shield should extend below the chin and to the ears, and there should be no exposed gap between the forehead and the shield's headpiece.

People exempt from the face covering requirement

  • People who have medical or other health conditions, disabilities or mental health, developmental, or behavioral needs that make it difficult to tolerate wearing a face covering.

  • Alternatives to masks such as clear face shields may be considered for those with health conditions or situations where wearing a mask is problematic.

  • If you cannot wear a face shield, and fall into a category exempting you from wearing a mask, we will still allow your entry. But, we would prefer, for your safety and that of others, that you refrain from coming to the Bid Sale. 

When it is required to wear a face covering

In the Bid Sale, including when waiting outside to enter the business. Coverings must be worn on the sales floor, by the cash windows, and in the waiting areas.
