As the coronavirus (COVID-19) begins to impact us locally, we wanted to communicate how MUCE Open-Air Market is responding and preparing. We are and have been actively monitoring information from the CDC and Florida Department of Public Health and taking necessary precautions to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We are taking extra care to ensure the safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers, and the people we assist.
We continue to educate our staff and volunteers on preventative measures, require proper hand washing for all staff and volunteers, and are asking our employees and volunteers to stay home if they show symptoms.
Due to social distancing recommendations, volunteers may be asked to refrain from certain proximity and/or interactions on-site.
