COVID-19 Response

To our friends, guests, and community

It’s tough times like these that the spirit of Santa Cruz shines.  When we come together we can all get through this. In light of increased concerns surrounding COVID-19, we wanted to share with you some of the extra steps we’re taking as a business to ensure everyone’s well-being.

Safety and Cleanliness

Your health and safety are important to us, and we make it a point to practice excellent hygiene all year round. In addition to following all CDC recommendations for prevention, we’re taking extra care to keep our shops and processing facility clean and safe. We’re sanitizing all high traffic areas – including counters, tables, bathrooms, and door handles – every 30 minutes.

Per the Santa Cruz Order, and for our own safety, we will not serve customers without a face covering except with written Doctor’s Note.

We’ve reviewed the importance of Face Coverings, extra hand washing and sanitizing with our team, and instructed any team members who are not feeling well to stay home and see a doctor. We’re also monitoring the situation closely and will implement additional recommendations as they come up.

Hours of Operation

In response to the shelter in place order, we’ve made adjustments to allow us to bring you a little joy in these tough times. We’re doing our part to ensure the safety of our team and Santa Cruzans’.
