The spread of coronavirus has slowed in part due to social distancing and quarantine measures, but it is still present. In many places, restaurants have been given the okay to reopen. While this is good for restaurant owners, it is not entirely without risk. In this article, we will discuss how the risk increases and what you can do to slow the spread.
More People In Public Spaces Means More Carriers
Not everyone who has COVID-19 shows symptoms. In fact, many people are believed to be carrying the virus without knowing. When these people enter public spaces, particularly in mask-free zones, they increase the chance that someone might catch the virus from them. Public spaces like restaurants are a major risk under these circumstances.
Following Best Practices
Restaurant owners can help play their part in keeping everyone safe by social distancing tables, limiting occupancy, and embracing extensive cleaning protocols. Wiping down tables, power cleaning utensils, and even cleaning the air in the restaurant can all help. Sanitizing the air of a location prior to opening can help to reduce the chance that leftover viral strains are present from before the close.
As we move to reopen, it is important to remember to take precautions. Every single one of us must take active steps to slow the threat of this virus so that we can challenge it. To discuss cleaning options for your business, please feel free to contact us. We are happy to help you slow the spread.
