Advisories

On March 20, in a move to help stem the spread of COVID-19, Governor Lamont ordered non-essential businesses to close as of 8 p.m., Monday, March 23. We are currently adjusting our shopping page to locate essential retail businesses in our communities.

In the Governor's March 22nd advisory, non-essential businesses are authorized to accept remote orders and fulfill the orders via pickup or delivery.

Please support local businesses who remain open, offering remote ordering (online, phone, mail, etc.) with pickup and delivery.
