A Health & Safety Update from Hal Smith Restaurants

At Hal Smith Restaurants, we are in the business of hospitality and it is always our priority to provide the best possible service to our guests, as well as to ensure the health and safety of our guests, employees and our community.  At all of our locations, we are closely monitoring the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and we will follow the guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In daily shift meetings, we have discussed the importance of our staff being more vigilant than usual with respect to precautionary measures with regards to the transmission.

All employees are required to follow the basic standard hygiene practices in the workplace.  Currently we are increasing awareness practices of the following:

  • Employees with flu-related symptoms will be asked to stay home until 24 hours after their fever ends.
  • Common hygiene practices will be stressed such as frequent hand washing, coughing and sneezing etiquette.
  • Employees will increase their levels of disinfecting areas multiple times a day and implement heightened sanitation and hand-washing procedures. 
  • Our stores will increase the frequency and extent of our cleaning practices, such as additional wipe downs of all hard surfaces including the kitchen, bathroom, bars and dining rooms.

At the present time, we would recommend all customers and employees assist in the awareness and practices that will help our stores and community such as:

  • Employees and customers should stay at home if they are experiencing flu like symptoms.
  • Handshaking is strongly discouraged by customers and employees.
  • Wash hands frequently and use a paper towel to dry.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.

We will continue to closely monitor this situation.  We greatly appreciate your support and cooperation.
Thank you and Stay Healthy!
