COVID-19 PLAN

GAIA RISING COVID-19 PLAN

At this point in time at Gaia Rising we are keeping top of mind the health and safety of our beloved customers, friends, and ourselves.

The staff of Gaia Rising is aware through monitoring Provincial Health Officer orders and information bulletins of the risk of transmission of COVID-19 largely through airborne droplets.  To mitigate the risk of transmission between staff or between staff and customers we commit to keeping 2.0-meter distance or keeping a plexiglass barrier between each other and our customers.  When this is not possible, we will wear a non-medical mask.  We will always have our masks available when we are in the shop and will put them on if we must pass within this distance.

We are limiting the individuals allowed in the shop to EIGHT (8) at any one time.  We will ask you to wait outside until someone leaves if we are at capacity.  If we are not close to full you are welcome to browse and move freely through the space.  We will remind people about polite distancing if we see people getting too close to each other.

  • PLEASE STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK, 
  • PLEASE SANITIZE OF WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE SHOPPING.
  • PLEASE KEEP YOUR DISTANCE,
  • PLEASE WEAR A MASK WHEN YOU CAN’T KEEP YOUR DISTANCE.

It is MANDATORY to sanitize your hands or wash your hands with soap before you begin shopping.

If you wish, you are welcome to wash your hands with soap and water in the washroom before you start shopping.

We use a sanitizing gel with alcohol and aloe vera to be easy on the skin.  It is not recommended for use on broken skin. 

In consideration of others we will stay home and would expect the same from you, our customers, if you are feeling any symptoms of COVID-19.  The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other respiratory illnesses including the flu and common cold. They include: 

 

    • Fever
    • Chills
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath
    • Sore throat and painful swallowing
    • Stuffy or runny nose
    • Loss of sense of smell
    • Headache
    • Muscle aches
    • Fatigue
    • Loss of appetite

 

If you are exhibiting any of these symptoms, please stay home.  WE WILL DELIVER FREE OF CHARGE locally.  Please call if we can help.  

Thank you for your cooperation, patience, and kindness to one another.

one another.
