stricter mask policyStricter Mask Policy goes into effect January 4, 2022

The following revised policies are in effect for Horsefeathers effective immediately. We put these measures in place to ensure the health & safety of our employees and customers during the SARS-COV-2 pandemic. These polices are based on guidance from the State of Illinois Governor’s office, CDC (Center for Disease Control), NIH (National Institutes for Health), and WHO (World Health Organization). These policies will be strictly enforced with no exceptions. Violation of any Horsefeathers Store Policies will result in you being asked to leave the store.


  1. PROPER MASKS MUST BE WORN TO ENTER THE STORE & AT ALL TIMES WHILE IN STORE. If you will not or cannot wear a mask, you must order by email. This policy complies with current guidance from the Federal Government on ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). By permitting an alternative accommodation we are following ADA regulations. For details, email us on
  2. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A PROPER MASK. Gaiters, bandanas, face shields, masks with vents, balaclavas, turtlenecks pulled over your nose, jackets zipped up to cover your mouth, scarves, dirty rags from your car tied around your nose and mouth, all of these are NOT allowed … you know what a proper mask is by now, please wear one.
  3. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PUT YOUR MASK ON BEFORE ENTERING THE STORE. If you attempt to enter before putting your mask on, you will be asked to leave. No warnings, no exceptions.
  4. YOUR MASK HAS TO STAY ON. If your mask slips off; if you are wearing it under your nose; if you take your mask off; if for any reason you wind up inside Horsefeathers without a mask covering your nose and mouth … you will immediately be asked to leave …  no warnings, no exceptions.

The Omicron variant is highly contagious, and we are not taking any chances with the health of our staff or other customers. It has been nearly two years; you’ve had time to buy a mask that fits and figure out how to wear it properly. If you cannot or will not wear a proper mask properly, please postpone your visit to Horsefeathers until after this pandemic is over.
