MEDFORD, Ore. -- Many of Southern Oregon's Goodwill stores will reopen Monday, May 11. Safety guidelines will be enforced, including a mask requirement.

Stores open daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. include Ashland, Central Point, Klamath Falls, Medford, Roseburg, and White City.

Stores NOT yet open include the Grants Pass store, As-Is outlets, and Good & Will boutique. Donations are accepted at the Grants Pass store 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily

Job Connections in Ashland (310 Oak Street) opens today from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for job seeker services using computers and resources.

Changes to expect when shopping include a mandatory mask or face covering.

To ensure social distancing, there will be a limited number of guests allowed while shopping with social distancing markers and lane restrictions throughout the building.

Staff members will wear gloves and clean highly touched surfaces including door handles, carts, register areas,  etc.

Contactless procedures will be practiced during check out at registers.

All donations and returns will be under quarantine for a minimum 72 hours before they are put on the sales floor.

Donation locations are using contactless operations with staff wearing PPE. Donors will be asked to unload and sort their items into categorized bins.

"Because of the financial setbacks of the pandemic and other factors, there are several changes to our business operations. At this time, our As-Is outlets and Good & Will boutique are not part of the immediate reopening plan," Southern Oregon Goodwill said in statement. "We are unable to reopen the Sutherlin store and the As-Is outlet in Grants Pass."

Goodwill's donation yard has permanently moved from Fir Street to 2077 Lars Way in W. Medford, and the organization will no longer accept donations behind the main office at 11 W. Jackson Street. The donations trailers at North Fred Meyers in Medford and at Williams Hwy Safeway in Grants Pass also are no longer in operation.

All staff impacted were offered opportunities to join teams at other SO Goodwill locations, the organization said.
