Full COVID-19 Safety Measures

If you are experiencing any symptoms related to COVID-19, have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or if you/anyone household is awaiting COVID test results please stay home.

Masks

  • Per CDC guidelines, if you are fully vaccinated you are not required to wear a mask within our facilities. If you are not fully vaccinated, we highly recommended you wear a mask. FMSC will not request proof of vaccination status and trusts our volunteers and staff alike to make decisions that will best support the health and safety of its staff and volunteers alike.
  • Please note thatacceptable masks include multi-layer cloth, non-medical disposable, or N95. All masks must fit snugly and completely cover your nose and mouth.
  • Please note that plastic face shields worn alone, neck gaiters, and bandanas are not acceptable. A mask with a face shield is acceptable.

Symptom Screening

  • All volunteers will go through a verbal symptom screening.
  • Symptom screening will require all volunteers answering “No” to the following questions
    1. Are you currently experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19?
    2. Within the past 14 days, have you been in close contact* with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 or anyone who has symptoms consistent with COVID-19?
      *Close contact: Being within 6 feet or less of an infected individual for a cumulative period of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period
    3. Are you isolating or quarantining because you may have been exposed to a person with COVID-19 or are worried that you may have COVID-19?
    4. Are you awaiting COVID-19 test results?

Information for Groups

  • Volunteer capacity is currently limited in order to comply with social distancing guidelines.
  • Groups will be socially distanced from other groups, but will not be socially distanced within groups.
  • Depending on group size, your group may be split into subgroups. Subgroups will be socially distanced from each other, but we will do our best to keep their packing stations as close to each other as possible.
  • If you or anyone in your group develops symptoms while packing, you and your entire group will be asked to leave immediately.

Additional Information

  • Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to check in and shop FMSC MarketPlace™.  If there is a line at the door, please wait until those in line have entered the building to help respect social distancing requirements.
    • If you have received the COVID-19 vaccination in any capacity (1st or 2nd round) you will still be required to wear masks at all times and follow all COVID protocols while packing. Likewise, if you are vaccinated in any capacity (1st or 2nd round) and are experiencing any COVID-19 related symptom, you will not be allowed to pack with us at this time.
  • The packing setup has been changed to accommodate social distancing.
  • Please be aware of local government restrictions for your area, especially pertaining to travel.
