Central Market implementing safety measures amid COVID-19 concerns

Supermarket to limit some low-quantity items to two per customer

Citing concerns for a potential COVID-19 outbreak in Kitsap County, Central Market in Poulsbo is implementing additional safety measures in efforts to reduce the spread of the virus.

According to their website, Central Market staff will be sanitizing surfaces daily that are frequently touched throughout the day. Cooking demos and sampling throughout the market has been suspended until further notice. Staff is also emphasizing that employees who are sick need to stay home.

In terms of product availability, there are shortages of essential grocery items such as sanitizers, toilet paper, water and some non-perishable foods, as is the case for many retailers throughout the county.

“We are working diligently with our suppliers to get the essentials in our markets as quickly as possible,” the Central Market notification reads. “However, our suppliers are also having shortages and are working on their end to replenish their inventories so we can stock our shelves. We may not be able to tell you when we will get more of a particular item.”

Due to the widespread shortages, Central Market staff is limiting the quantity of some affected items to two per customer.
