Cal Mart in Calistoga is restricting the number of customers in the store to 20 at one time, to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

To prevent and combat the spread of COVID-19, Cal Mart is limiting the number of customers in the store to no more than 20 at any time, starting Tuesday, as announced in a Nixle alert from the City of Calistoga.

Also, lines will be taped on the ground spaced six feet apart in the checkout lines, and store personnel will be enforcing separation distances. Only registers one, three and five will be open. Store personnel will be wiping down carts and cash registers every 20 minutes and PIN pads more frequently. Other measures include locking the back door with no public entering or exiting, and all warehouses will be locked shut unless there is an active delivery.

As previously announced, Cal Mart will open the store on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8—9 a.m. for senior citizens (65+) and those with critical medical conditions only.
