COVID-19 Precautions

At Russell Nursery we value the health and well-being of both our staff and customers and are taking important steps to help protect us all from the spread of COVID-19. We are sanitizing surfaces daily and our shopping carts are sanitized continually throughout the day. We encourage our customers to use the provided hand sanitizer.

Please take the time to read the following guidelines to ensure a safe and pleasant shopping experience for everyone.

Physically distance. The nursery is big and fresh air is abundant! Keep 2m distance between yourself and others at all times.

Masks are required in the shop and we encourage everyone to wear a mask out-of-doors where physical distancing is difficult.

The occupancy limit inside the shop is 6 people. This includes any staff inside the shop. Please heed this limit and keep your visit inside as short as possible if others are waiting.

Stay home if you are not well or if you have had close contact with someone ill. Customers displaying symptoms will be gently invited to return home, to take good care of themselves, and to come back when they are symptom-free.

Be patient (and always be kind, calm, and safe!). Do not be offended if someone reminds you to physically distance. Remember that it takes two to tango and it takes two to practice good physical distancing! Just say thanks and be glad that we care enough to remind each other.

Remember that gardening pursuits are healthy for mind and body! Russell Nursery is thrilled to be open and to be able to support gardeners everywhere.

We look forward to continuing to serve our members safely throughout the pandemic and beyond. And if the truth is told, we especially look forward to ‘beyond’ … like you, we can’t wait to see the end of this pandemic! In the interim, we’re buckling down. We are committed to getting through this ordeal safely and well! With your help, we’ll succeed. See you soon!
