During the quarantine, the city was very serious about the amount of people you could have in your store or shop.
The marijuana dispensary where I work was fined one time because there were too many people inside of the store.
We had counted about 12 people and we were allowed to have 15 at a time. When the person showed up to check on us, we were four over the limit for the building and the inspector gave us a fine and a warning. I thought they would give us one or the other, but they wanted the business to know that they were serious about the rules. Ever since the marijuana dispensary got the fine, they have been really particular about following all of the covert precautions. We are still following covert protocol even though most of the other places have lifted their stringent policies. We still have an air purifier in the lobby and we still offer delivery and pick up services. We do offer in-store pickup, but we discourage our customers from hanging out in the lobby. We try to get people in and out of the marijuana store as quickly as possible. Every hour on the top of the hour, one of the employees has to wash and clean all of the surfaces with a sanitizer solution. This includes all of the counters, chairs, benches, windows and plexiglass. Everyone in the store has on a mask and no one is allowed to remove the mask for any reason. You can’t even remove your mask in the break room unless you are physically and actively taking a bite or drink of food. When the problems with the virus are over, I will be happy for things at the dispensary to go back to normal.
