COVID-19 Mitigation and Contingency Plan

Per local government emergency order and according to guidance from the CDC the following plan will remain in place to protect our staff and customers:


  • Bananas will regulate the capacity of store to maintain a 6-foot barrier between customers and staff
  • All staff and customers are required to wear masks or face covering in all areas of the business open to the public. All masks must cover your nose and mouth, no exceptions. If customers are unable to wear a mask, they may utilize our curbside shopping option. Customers who have to be asked more than once to replace their mask or wear their mask correctly will be asked to leave
  • All employees will wash hands throughout the day for at least 20 seconds
