At Wellness Connection of Maine, we take pride in serving as your guide to the incredible properties of cannabis and its role in your health and wellness. The well-being of our patients, customers, and employees are our highest priority.
We have always taken pride in our clean and well-run dispensaries, and we know that cleanliness is more important than ever right now. Last week we implemented proactive steps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, also known as Coronavirus. Everything we are doing follows the recommended guidelines of the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and our state’s Departments of Health. Steps we have taken include:
- Clean and disinfect all frequently touched, common area surfaces on an hourly basis.
- Circulate protocols to all of our employees to help ensure their personal hygiene habits inside and outside our dispensaries are in accordance with CDC guidelines.
- Instruct our employees to remain home should they show any symptoms of COVID-19 or if they have been in close proximity to anyone that has been diagnosed with the virus.
- Halt all business travel for our employees.
As news emerges about new cases in Maine, we all have to do our part to “flatten the curve” for the good of the community. We recognize that cannabis provides important benefits to our members’ health and wellness, especially during times of stress or worry. In order to maintain access for our members while also considering the health and safety of our employees, customers, and community, we will be changing our dispensary operations starting Tuesday March 17th to a pre-order/take out model, allowing one customer at a time in the store.
We ask that members pre-order online or phone in their order directly to the dispensary. Upon arriving at the dispensary, please call to inform the staff that you have arrived, and they will let you know when you can come into the dispensary to complete your transaction. We will be limiting entry to one customer at a time, and ask for your patience as we implement this new system.
As always, our goal is to ensure that our dispensaries are a safe place for both body and mind. We are committed to being mindful and focused on keeping each other safe during this challenging period. Stay safe out there.
