COVID Guidelines:

  1. Wear a facemask / face covering and ask buyers to wear one too.
  2. Stay more than 6 feet away.
  3. Sanitize between transactions and after settling funds.
  4. Sell in household groups (family)

Contactless Ways to Receive Funds
1. Accept cash/checks in envelopes.
2. Venmo, Paypal are fine options as long as facemasks are worn and unit accounting system is in place. (Not a COVID-safety issue)

Door-to-Door Sales Know How
1. Ask permission to talk to them. If they say no then thank them and leave.
2. Stay more than 6 feet apart.  Quick transactional breaches are ok as long as both are wearing facemasks.
3. Do not go inside homes.
4. Sell to neighbors when a big game is on tv! Think Super Bowl or March Madness!
