Blarney Castle Oil Co. is committed to serving our customers and our communities and we will continue to provide an exceptional and safe experience for all of our employees and customers. A face mask must be worn when shopping at any of our EZ Mart locations as required by the Governors Executive Order 2020-153. The only reason a customer is allowed to enter without a face covering is if they cannot medically tolerate one, are under the age of five, are communicating with someone who is hearing impaired and needs to see the mouth for communication, or for identification purposes. Our employees cannot legally ask a customer if they have a medical condition due to federal laws (ADA and HIPAA) but will gently remind our customers that a mask is now required. If a customer has forgotten their mask we will provide one at no charge while supplies last. We need to take this order seriously and comply in order to preserve the health of our employees, customers, and company.
Since this order went into effect some of our employees have had interactions with aggressive customers who do not want to wear a mask. Please know that BCOC would never ask any of our employees to put themselves into an unsafe situation. We will comply with the law, but we do not want our employees to feel as though they have to escalate an issue with an already aggressive customer.
BCOC as always, continues to be committed to helping to protect the health and well-being of the communities we serve and our employees.
If you need any help at any of our stores or offices, please drop us a line or call the store. We’re more than happy to serve!
