Update August, 2021
We have decided to require vaccinated staff to wear masks during this period while virus levels are continuing to rise in the state of New Jersey due to the Delta Variant. The CDC has recommended mask wearing indoors regardless of vaccination status, as all of New Jersey is currently in "high" or "substancial" levels of COVID-19 activity.
We continue to require unvaccinated customers to wear masks, but do not require mask wearing for vaccinated customers.
Throughout COVID-19, the safety of our customers and staff has been first and foremost in the planning of our operation. We have navigated these unclear and uncertain days with a resolve to keep moving ahead, adjusting our operations as necessary.
We continually evaluated our operations in order to proceed safely and in an organized manner, often working with many moving targets as the guidelines changed. During this uncertain time, there was a wide variation in each individual's comfort level being out in public, and we have done our best to meet as many of our customers' needs as possible. Our bakery was not designed to operate during a pandemic, which necessitated making adjustments to customer flow so that we were able to continue to operate and bake beautiful, all-natural, products and serve the community 7 days a week. With continual adjustments, we were able to offer both in-person ordering, online orders and pick-ups, as well as home deliveries, and operate a retail kiosk in The Mall at Short Hills.
During this time, Liv Breads has closely monitored and followed the rules and procedures laid out by Federal, State, and Local governments. The CDC lifted the mask mandate for fully vaccinated people on May 13, and as New Jersey is now implementing this guidance on May 28, Liv Breads will follow suit starting June 1, in accordance with the Governor's executive order 242, issued May 25.
Effective Tuesday, June 1, 2021 fully vaccinated customers and employees of Liv Breads will no longer be required to wear masks when entering the Liv Breads downtown Millburn location. For vaccinated individuals, mask wearing is at your own discretion.
The Mall at Short Hills releases its own policies regarding COVID, so if you have any questions before visiting the mall, please visit their website or contact them directly.
If you have not yet been vaccinated, you must continue to wear a mask when entering Liv Breads Millburn.
We are extremely appreciate of our customers who have continued to support us and given us wonderful and helpful feedback. Our staff has been absolutely amazing, and we have a core team who has been with us every step of the way. Thank you, thank you!
