The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has made it very clear what social distancing should look like, and grocery stores are near the top of the list to ensure safety within the community. They specifically mention that grocery stores are spaces where face covers are recommended.

If you have concerns about grocery stores that are not following proper social distancing policies, you can send complaints to the Oregon Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

“It’s very visible where we see problems with physcial distancing and problems with people not observing certain aspects of that," said Jason Davis with Lane County Public Health. "Overall, we believe that the majority of people in Lane County are following physcial distancing guidelines. We are going to encourage people to continue that as much as possible.”
