COVID-19 Safety Protocols at Our Stores

COVID Safety Protocols

Covid Safety guidelines


Our stores are adjusting to the changing health and safety guidelines, and will continue to update this page as changes are made. 


As of 2/16/22, California's indoor masking requirement for vaccinated people was lifted. Our Hollywood store requests that any unvaccinated individuals continue to wear a mask inside the store, but the policy remains optional for vaccinated customers. Our Berkeley and San Francisco stores will continue to enforce a mask requirement in our stores. We will continue to monitor the shifting landscape and announce any changes to our policy as they are made. As always, Amoeba appreciates your understanding and support as we navigate this unprecedented set of circumstances.


Please note:


* Customers and staff must avoid entering the store if they are sick, especially with cough or fever, or have recently tested positive for COVID.


* We are not checking bags at the front of our stores; instead, we will ask that you do not bring large bags or backpacks. Smaller bags will be visually inspected upon exit.


* We encourage you to use the provided hand sanitizer upon entering our store. There is also hand sanitizer available in locations around the store.


* We have a limited amount of disposable gloves available to you for browsing upon request.


* There are protective plexiglass shields at various stations around the store. Please stand behind these shields when being helped and do not touch them.


* Customers who wish to sell or trade will be asked to drop off their product at the buy counter, but will not be permitted to remain there while their offer is being assessed. You may either shop or wait outside and the buyer will contact you when they have finished evaluating your items.


* The consumption of food and beverages inside the store is not allowed.


* For customers who are limiting their time in public, please call the store and we can hold your items at the registers for 24 hours. If you have any specific questions or needs, please call the store so we can assist you.
