In light of the ongoing Coronavirus news, I want to assure you that the health and safety of our employees and guests is, and always has been, a top priority. We have always taken food safety, cleanliness, and personal hygiene very seriously. In an effort to prevent illness and keep our restaurants healthy, all of our employees are taking the following safety procedures:
Washing hands often, for a minimum of 20 seconds at a time. All back-of-house employees will be wearing gloves at all times.
Staying home if any symptoms are experienced.
Avoiding touching eyes, nose, and mouth.
Practicing respiratory hygiene by covering nose and mouth, and discarding used tissues immediately.
Staying informed on the latest developments and following advice given by a healthcare provider.
Additionally, we are now taking extra sanitary precautions at each of our restaurants. Effective immediately and for the foreseeable future, we will:
Not accept reusable cups.
Discontinue the use of check presenters.
Have single use, paper menus.
Use a peroxide-disinfectant on all high-touch surfaces.
Post guidelines from the Center for Disease Control with instructions on how to prevent the spread of germs and this novel virus.
We also encourage our guests to:
Wash your hands frequently and use a paper towel to dry.
Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze with a tissue, and then dispose of the tissue
