Phase 1 Restaurant and Cafe COVID-19 Mitigation Policies

  • All Foundation venues/facilities will undergo professional deep cleanings and receive a comprehensive viral disinfectant fogging prior to re-opening. Our venues will continue to undergo rigorous daily cleanings, with increased disinfecting procedures on all high touch surfaces throughout our many theatres, cafes, galleries, event spaces, and workspaces. All venues have sanitizer stations installed at convenient locations including points of entry, common areas, offices, elevator, and restroom entrances.
  • If an employee’s job requires that you return to Foundation workspaces and the employee is considered “high risk”, as determined by CDC, the employee needs to request accommodations with Human Resources and the Executive Director.
  • Temperature checks/health screenings will be administered prior to the beginning of each workday/shift and before entering each venue.
    A temperature of 100.3 or below will be granted access.
    A temperature of 100.4 or above will be denied access.
  • Anyone exhibiting signs of illness, or a 100.4 fever or above, will not be allowed to enter the workplace and will be sent home immediately. Employees sent home will not be allowed to return to work until they have been cleared by a health-care provider and by HR.
  • Mandatory sign-in sheets will remain in all venue lobbies and employees and vendors strict adherence to signing in is required. Full service restaurant seating will be by reservation only. This information ensures we have proper tracing protocols in place in the event someone becomes infected with COVID-19 and may be shared with public health or government officials.
  • Employees returning to the restaurants, bars, and cafes will be required to wear face coverings and gloves at all times, adhere to all social distancing policies, and follow all mandated safety and hygiene protocols as deemed necessary by public health and government officials.
  • Employees will be offered face coverings upon returning to work, and will be issued disposable masks at the start of each shift. Kitchen staff will be required to wear hair nets. There will be dedicated trash cans for PPE and staff must dispose of PPE before leaving for the day.
  • Staff will wash hands upon arriving at work and will wear gloves for their entire shift, replacing them frequently and washing their hands as needed.
  • Hands will be washed with warm water (100 degrees) and for at least 20 seconds following the touching of surfaces, touching the face or clothes, sneezing, or using the restroom. Staff must dry hands only with disposable paper towels, and never with kitchen or cloth towels. Faucets must be turned off with a paper towel, and never by a clean hand.
  • Gloves will be accessible at all workstations. All staff, particularly kitchen staff, must wear and change gloves frequently and wash hands between changes. Gloves must be changed between handling of food or touching of equipment, clothes, doors, handles, etc. Staff must also change gloves if they leave their work area, take a break, or use the restroom.
  • Cell phones and personal belongings will be stored in designated areas and will only be accessible with permission from the manager. People’s items will be kept separate to avoid cross contamination.
  • Signs will be present in all workstations and common areas to remind staff and guests of safety protocol relevant to those areas.
  • EPA-registered disinfectant will be available in all workstations as appropriate, will remain stocked, and will be readily available to staff. Disinfectant wipes will be provided to wipe down work areas, bar and countertops, points-of-sale and other technology, door handles, buttons and switches, ice machines, and other shared or high-touch areas. Logs will be placed at all dishwashers and other high traffic work areas for hourly inspection and testing of chemicals.
  • Dedicated workstations are only to be used by the assigned staff member and staff will remain separated by at least six feet wherever possible. Employees are not allowed to make visits to workstations other than their own. Staff will not loiter in other work areas or public spaces.
  • All host stands, bars, cafe counters, and concession stands will be protected with plexiglass. Loitering in these work areas is not permitted.
  • The elevator at .ZACK will be limited to 2 passengers at a time. Passengers must remain on opposite sides of the cabin. Elevators at the High Low and The Grandel are restricted to one passenger. Unless limited by a mobility issue, the use of stairwells are recommended.
  • The restrooms will be limited to no more than 2 guests at a time.
  • The use of water fountains is not permitted.
  • Orders from vendors must always be received by the person that placed the order. All vendors will be administered a temperature check before entry into our venues and be required to wear protective face coverings and gloves while on-premise. If a vendor arrives without proper face coverings and gloves, the order must be returned and the sales rep contacted immediately.
  • Shipments and mail must be wiped down with disinfectant wipe before being passed out and/or held in a secure place for a minimum of 72 hours. A secure holding area will be provided and defined by the Foundation.
  • Prior to returning to restaurants and workspaces employees will be required to complete Covid-19 mitigation specific training(s) to be determined by Kranzberg Arts Foundation.
