samples in indiv cupsOFMA has just updated the COVID-19 guidelines for markets with sampling guidelines as well as put together a Safe Sampling FAQ sheet.

Since Columbia County is in Phase 1, vendors may distribute samples, in containers with or without lids; however they still must be handed out, individually, to shoppers, rather than being placed out for self-serve or buffet-style.

See here for more info on safe sampling guidelines: where samples can be prepared and requirements for hand washing stations, all of which apply for all vendors, regardless of what phase your county is in.
