Please be mindful of the following restrictions so we can keep everyone healthy

  • Social distancing of six feet - let's think an apartment sofa width or a pair of chairs
  • You must wear a mask - have you seen some the fabric showrooms stylish masks?
  • Use the hand sanitizer and wash your hands often - gloves are welcomed to be worn
  • Follow Franklin Court Building's arrows, signs and traffic flow -they are here to protect all of us.
