COVID-19 Safety Precautions
The Dairy Market continues to take all necessary steps to create a safe space for both employees and guests.
On Friday, May 14, 2021, Virginia’s Governor Ralph Northam lifted Virginia’s universal indoor mask policy to align with new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Governor Northam also announced that Virginia will ease all distancing and capacity restrictions Friday, May 28, 2021.
Following this most recent guidance, the Dairy Market will no longer require those visitors and guests who are FULLY VACCINATED to wear a mask except where required by federal, state, and local regulations. Each of our merchants retains the decision to require or not require masks within their space.
All those who are not fully vaccinated, according to the CDC definition, must continue to wear masks and follow social distancing protocols previously established. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine.
The Dairy Market will not require proof of vaccination, but we ask for responsible and respectful cooperation with this revised policy. We continue to recommend all merchants, employees, and visitors, especially those who are at higher risk, wear a mask and practice social distancing.
Additional measures which continue to be in place to maintain a safe environment:
- Tables and chairs are fully cleaned between uses.
- An abundance of hand sanitizer stations throughout the space.
- We utilize high-performance MERV-13 filters in our HVAC system to help trap airborne particles to the greatest extent possible.
