UPDATES DUE TO COVID-19

Please know we are stepping up our efforts to keep our staff and customers safe in the following ways. 
 
We will be implementing the following policy until further notice to those who choose to shop in-store with us. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at (507) 377-1163. Hope to see you soon!
 
Practice Social Distancing
We will be opening at 50% capacity. This will provide ample room to move around the shop with plenty of space. Due to this restriction you may be asked to wait outside, but our front porch is the perfect place to relax. 
 
Use Hand Sanitizer
We will have a hand sanitizing station for you as you arrive. Please use it to protect yourself and us! Sanitizer will also be available throughout the shop.
 
Wear a Mask
Our staff will be wearing masks. We would like to make them available to you as well. If you don't have one, please use curbside pick-up or you can purchase a fabric mask for only $5.00. As always, if you're not feeling well, please wait to visit us until you are healthy.
 
A Clean Shop
Our staff will be wiping down the cashier, cutting counters, office areas, and all high-touch surfaces regularly and throughout the day. We will continue sanitizing for the foreseeable future.
 
Arrange a Private Shopping Experience
If you prefer, we will arrange a private shopping time for you. We can help you with purchases over the phone (507) 377-1163 or online (www.calicohutchquiltshop.com).

 

 

COVID-19 Precautions – November Retreat 2020

  • The safety and health of our customers and employees is always our highest priority.
  • Calico Hutch will continue to adjust services, as needed, which could result in cancellation or changes as necessary to maintain the safety and health of our customers and employees.  Government  directives are changing daily and for your health and safety we may be required to make changes or cancellations.
  • For the safety of everyone, we are requiring facial masks be worn during the retreat. Unless you are actively eating or drinking, a facial mask is required at all times.  If for medical reasons you cannot wear a mask, please consider attending a retreat event when masks are not mandated.

Face Covering Requirements and Recommendations under Minnesota Executive Order 20-81 

Types of face coverings can include a paper or disposable mask, a cloth mask, a neck gaiter, a scarf, a bandanna, or a religious face covering.

A face covering must cover the nose and mouth completely. The covering should not be overly tight or restrictive and should feel comfortable to wear.

Any mask that incorporates a valve that is designed to facilitate easy exhaling, mesh masks, or masks with openings, holes, visible gaps in the design or material, or vents are not sufficient face coverings because they allow droplets to be released from the mask.

A face covering is not a substitute for social distancing, but is especially important in situations when maintaining at least a 6-foot distance from other individuals who are not members of the same household is not possible.

It is not known whether face shields (a clear plastic barrier that covers the face) provide the same source control for droplets as face masks, but they may be an option in situations where wearing a face mask is problematic. For optimal protection, the shield should extend below the chin and to the ears, and there should be no exposed gap between the forehead and the shield's headpiece.

Although medical-grade masks (e.g., surgical face masks, N95 respirators) are sufficient face coverings, members of the public who do not work in health care or an occupation that requires medical-grade protective equipment (e.g., certain construction professions) are discouraged from wearing them as they should be reserved for those workers.

  • Every retreater will be supplied with their own personal hand sanitizer. Stations with hand sanitation will be prevalent and wipes supplied at each ironing station.
  • High-touch hard surface areas will be cleaned frequently.
  • If you choose to provide treats, they must be wrapped and sealed in individual packages.
  • Meals will be plated by the Holiday Inn staff and served at your sewing area.
  • Forehead body temperature checks will be administered upon your arrival and each day when you enter the sewing space.

Holiday Inn protocol:

  • Our IHG Way of Clean has always included deep cleaning with hospital grade disinfectants. Reflecting the advice of the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control, we have enhanced our procedures to include additional deep cleaning of high-touch surfaces, implemented social distancing and made changes to how we deliver our food and beverage to ensure guest safety and security.
