We want to thank everyone for the diligent hard work we have all done in Austin to reduce the risk of Covid spread, and keeping our families and team safe! With Covid numbers fluctuating, and Travis county entering different stages as rapidly as we have, our mask policies are subject to change.
Here’s a bit of insight as to how we determine mask mandates in the store:
Stage 5: Masks are required for all staff and customers.
Stage 4: Staff is required to wear masks and all customers are strongly encouraged to wear a mask. Masks will be required inside.
Stage 3 or below: Masks are optional for those who are vaccinated. Masks are required for those who are not vaccinated.

We are monitoring Covid numbers on a weekly basis so that we can change our policy on an as needed basis. We ask that everyone continue to maintain safe practices, and respect the space of others as we continue to navigate this new world by maintaining social distancing, washing your hands frequently, and maintaining a respectful amount of space while in line. We will continue to sanitize all high contact surfaces, including our carts, on a daily basis.
If you are not yet fully vaccinated, or feeling under the weather, we ask that you join us in normalizing wearing a mask to protect our families and team members even when they are no longer required by the CDC. This is a huge step towards getting Austin back to “Keeping Austin Weird” and Keeping Austin Covid-Free! Thank you and we look forward to seeing everyone!
