Dear Valued Customers,
At Rec-Tech Outdoor Solutions, our top priority is the health and safety of our customers and employees. We have been paying close attention to this ever-changing situation, and we are proactively adapting and creating policies to address concerns surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus).
Our Plato, 200 4th Ave, SE, retail location will be temporarily closed due to Governor Waltz’s Emergency Executive Stay at Home Order 20-20 and all of our efforts to keep people, including our staff and customers safe. We will continue to accept and answer customer calls and emails during this time. Our retail location will reopen for customers when official notice regarding changes or removal of the order is given.
We are following local, national, and federal health recommendations to help slow the spread of the virus and keep those at increased risk safer. We are following specific recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and the Minnesota Department of Health.
State of Minnesota:
