Arcadia Mandates Masks

Plus Daily Covid-19 Case Numbers

ARCADIA – Masks will be required in Arcadia beginning Monday, Aug. 3, but the Arcadia Farmers Market will adopt the practice starting with the Saturday, Aug. 1 market.

Saturdays. 8 am – 1 pm

“Wearing a mask is a small inconvenience and is not only courteous, but will allow the market to continue to provide fresh food directly from our local farms,” said Linda Simonton, one of the partners in the farmers market.

“It’s something we are trying to do to combat the Covid-19,” said Vice Mayor Marcus Woodard. About 270 people live in the town Arcadia, There have been 16 positive cases of Covid-19, with just one active case as of July 29.

Arcadia’s annual Labor Day weekend festival and rodeo will be canceled due to the pandemic.

“The farmers market will require customers and vendors to wear masks when not eating,” Simonton said. “There are a number of picnic tables away from the market area where people can eat and use proper social distancing guidelines.”

The Arcadia Round Barn has required volunteers and visitors to wear masks while inside the museum since re-opening in June. Joe Baxter, who coordinates the live music, said masks have been strongly encouraged for the outdoor concerts but will now be required. Baxter applauded the decision by the Arcadia board of trustees.

The Arcadia Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Round Barn has adjusted its hours during the pandemic to 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday through Monday, and is open longer hours when volunteers are available. Live music is every Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and on occasional Sunday afternoons.
