We’re all for freedom, but we cannot do, or not do, things that put others in harm’s way. It is about mutual respect. None of us are enjoying the new policies that must be in place until the spread of novel coronavirus is under control. Likewise, none of us want to get sick. Our health and your health are our number one priority, thus these new policies. We care about you, that is why we are doing this. We ask that you equally care about the staff at Horsefeathers by following these policies. Flagrant violation of any Horsefeathers policy could result in your being permanently prohibited from shopping here. No one wants that!
