Bauman Covid-19 Response
Bauman’s Farm & Garden takes great pride in our commitment to do whatever is possible to be a source of food & groceries for the surrounding communities where we are located. As circumstances surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continue to evolve, we will take the appropriate actions to ensure the health and safety of our customers, employees and the community in general. We ask that you please adhere to the directions they point to in order to facilitate a shopping flow with sufficient social distancing.
Wearing of Masks is REQUIRED
Effective Wednesday, June 24th 2020, customers shopping at Bauman’s Farm & Garden are REQUIRED to wear a face mask as per the directives issued by the Oregon Health Authority and Governor Brown. Bauman’s is located in Marion County. For more information and guidance on this requirement, click here.
In and Outs
We are limiting the entrances and exits to/from the store to one (1) entrance and one (1) exit. The entrance door by the big red barn is open and the exit door is an automatic sliding door. This avoids the need to touch door handles for opening doors. Inside the produce & bakery section of the store, we have placed yellow arrows on the floor to maintain a one-way flow. We ask that you please adhere to the directions the point to in order to facilitate a shopping flow with sufficient social distancing.
25 Customers in the Store Limit
The number of customers inside the store is limited to 25 total at a time. (25 persons, not 25 parties). Doing so will avoid overcrowding and allow for sufficient social distancing between customers as well with employees. We appreciate your patience with the customer shopping ahead of you or with the employee restocking.
2 Persons Per Household or Party Limit
Please limit yourself to two (2) persons total per household or party inside the store (Yes, kids count as persons). As the total customers allowed in the store at a time is only 10 persons, this limit will allow us maintain the social distancing recommendations as well as provide access to more shoppers at a time in the store. There are no household/party restrictions in the garden center. Thank you for your consideration.
Clean Hands & Masks
All customers, including children, shopping at Bauman’s will be asked to sanitize their hands when they enter the store. We have a convenient sanitizing stations set-ups when you enter the store or the garden center. Disposable rubber gloves are also provided for customers who can’t use hand sanitizers or prefer not to. The wearing of a mask is highly encouraged and appreciated!
Please keep the recommended 6ft radius distance from your fellow shoppers and store employees when inside the store as well as at the check-out lines and in the garden center.
A reminder that pets, including therapy, companion and emotional support animals, are not allowed inside the store as per Oregon law! Only service or assistance animals are permitted. Please visit our Pet Policy page for more information. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
The Garden Center & Store are Separated
In order to maintain better oversight on the number of customers (10 max) inside the store, we have separated the garden center from the store. The garden center has its own check-outs so there is no need to go into the store to pay for your purchases. There are no limits on the number of persons in your party for shopping in the garden center but we do ask that you adhere to the social distancing guidelines here as well.
Clean Carts & Baskets
Shopping carts and shopping baskets placed INSIDE the store entrance have been sanitized.
Frequently touched surfaces around the store are constantly cleaned and disinfected during the business day.
Until further notice, we will discontinue providing samples of assorted products we sell.
