Alternate Universes’ COVID-19 Safety Guidelines

Alternate Universes is currently OPEN for retail sales.  However, until further notice we have closed our play areas and cancelled all organized play events at each location.

Following the guidelines set out by the governors of PA & DE, we are taking the following precautions at each Alternate Universes location:

•  All customers and staff are required to wear face coverings, and we ask that customers practice proper social distancing.

•  No more than 6 customers are allowed in the store at one time.

•  Customers are asked to wear disposable gloves (provided by us) while handling binders or cards.

•  Customers are not permitted to use the bathrooms.

As well, each store undergoes thorough cleaning before and after opening.  Thank you for helping us keep our community safe during these difficult times!
