Review Shop Safety and Covid Information.

Multnomah County is instituting a mask requirement again and the Guild is following suit.The county expects the requirement to be in place through the end of the year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are implementing additional safety requirements for those using the shop. Before you arrive for your scheduled session, please ensure the following:

  • You are in good health, not living with anyone who is ill, have not been exposed to anyone with COVID-19 in the last 14 days
  • You have a face covering without an exhaust valve. This must cover your nose, mouth, and chin and is to be worn at all times. The Guild does have some for sale at the shop but we recommend you bring your own.
  • You are willing to abide by the requirements.
