The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released safety protocol for reopening dine-in restaurant service. These precautions are designed to encourage safety for employees and customers. Here are several tips from the CDC:
- Restaurants select a staff member to handle any COVID-19 problems. This includes monitoring social distancing between tables, enforcing mask regulations, and more.
- Outdoor seating should be a focus, and restaurants can utilize apps and text reminders instead of buzzers. Customers should have marked locations outside your operation to safely wait for their table or food.
- Designated pickup areas should be used instead of self-serve (do not allow buffets, soda machines, etc..)
- Prioritize washing hands among staff and diligently clean surfaces. Print single-use menus and offer packet-sized condiments to your customers.
These guidelines will allow your restaurant to safely welcome customers to dine-in again. After taking the necessary steps to ensure property safety for your staff and customers, the goal quickly moves to providing them with an enjoyable meal. Cotati Food Service delivers the fresh solutions for a wide-range of dishes that will have your customers asking for more!
