Synergy’s Mask Guidelines

The Governor lifted all Covid-related restrictions on May 29, 2021, signaling the end of an era that we will never forget. And as we move forward together, Synergy’s has the following changes to share with you. We recognize that you may have varied reactions to the changes which may feel fast but welcome, or unnerving yet filled with a sense of freedom. To help you prepare, we want to share our plans with you, some of which were updated on October 18, 2021.
