What is MAC doing to keep patients, customers, and employees safe?

Masks are required for all employees, patients, and customers (unless not possible due to a medical condition).

Hand sanitizer is placed at the entrance of the dispensary and throughout the dispensary for customers, patients, and employees to use.

Frequent hand sanitizing/washing is required for all employees. Partitions are installed at all registers. Full store sanitization will take place every 30 minutes, and will include highcontact areas/surfaces, ATMs, and debit machines.

We have reduced store capacity to 40%, including employees and customers. Lines have distancing markers spaced six feet apart, both outside and in-store, to ensure social distancing.

Digital menus are available to ensure patient and customer safety.

We encourage all customers and employees to stay home if they are sick or experiencing any potential COVID-19 symptoms.
