Additional COVID-19 Safety Features
In early August 2020 we had UVC germicidal lights added to our HVAC system. A recent (June 2020) study by Columbia University Irving Medical Center noted “Based on our results, continuous airborne disinfection with far-UVC light at the current regulatory limit could greatly reduce the level of airborne virus in indoor environments occupied by people.” The result is that all of the air that circulates through this system is treated with this anti-viral ultraviolet light and treated with sophisticated MERV filtration. So wear your masks, sanitize your hands, keep your distance - we're doing our part to make your visit as safe and pleasant as possible.
Update: in November 2020 we added three freestanding true HEPA-filter air purifiers, with air flow matched to the store's square footage.
Update: In early December we added a counter-wide, single-piece acrylic ("plexiglass") screen and side panels to create a more complete barrier at the counter to keep customers and staff more fully separated.
