Spring shopping on Elm Street

From The Blog COVID-19 guide: How to shop safely in Woodstock

Wearing is caring Masks are required for all downtown shopping!

In this challenging time, we implore our readers to take care of themselves and each other.

That means maintaining at least six feet between yourself and others, wearing a mask in all Woodstock village shops as per the emergency ordinance, washing your hands frequently and thoroughly (with warm, soapy water for 20 seconds), and staying home as much as possible. But beyond that, it also means supporting neighbors and businesses hit hardest by the virus.

If you or a family member are quarantined, please contact Woodstock Emergency Management for help with food, water, medications, and financial assistance at (802) 457-7516.
