Employee and customer safety continue to be at the forefront as we implement measures to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. It is our deep commitment to ensure that we have processes and procedures in place to ensure the safety of our employees and our guests. We have a created a comprehensive COVID Prevention Plan that meets local, state and federal regulations, and is in alignment with the university safety requirements.
Below are just a few measures we are taking to keep everyone safe.
We practice physical distancing of 6ft. within our stores and back of the house areas. We have installed physical distancing signage, and one-way aisles and walkways. We have also added plexiglass barriers at registers and high traffic areas.
Our team follows regulatory standards for cleaning and disinfecting, especially areas of high traffic. We have also increased our employee hand-washing requirement, and a have hand sanitizer, gloves and sanitation wipes throughout our locations.
We require all employees, vendors and customers to wear a face mask at all times.
We ask that masks are worn in accordance with CDC requirements, covering both the mouth and the nose.
We require all employees to do a daily symptom check, before reporting to work. Vendors are also asked to do this before entering any of our facilities.
Employees, vendors or customers who are sick are asked to stay home.
We train all of our employees and management teams on COVID prevention measures. This includes how to properly wear a mask, wash your hands, and practicing social distancing in the workplace.
We are limiting the number of guests that can be in our locations at one time to 50% capacity. We have also instituted a monitoring process to ensure that there is proper social distancing, as guests wait to enter the locations, and inside our facilities.
Our dining locations will be available for to-go orders only. The Residential dining halls which typically have buffet style of self service will now be served by our friendly staff.
We are using single use cups, to-go containers, and utensils.
We have adjusting our hours to help team members and customers feel comfortable and safe to use our facilities. This allows our staff to spend the necessary time, while closed, to clean, sanitize, and stock or prepare for the following day.
We’re continuing to work around the clock to do everything we can to ensure our customers have access to the services they need.
