What is your recommendation on handling linen napkins and silverware for the guest?
Can I find a printable health screening form to document employee's status upon each incoming shift?
Alec - while guidelines are silent on those specific items (linens and silverware). Your silverware is washed in a commercial dishwasher that is inspected by the health department. You are fine in utilizing silverware - from a practical perspective - we would not recommend “pre-setting” tables. Linen napkins your staff may have issues with utilizing.
Thank You Patrick
Michelle - These screens are in the Hoosier Hospitality Promise Document.
* What kinds of questions should a restaurant ask its employees to perform health screenings before each shift?Yes or no questions/statements like these can help strike the balance between obtaining the necessary health information and respecting privacy concerns.Recommendation is to have all employees complete a simple pre-shift screening that includes answering questions like:• Do you have any of these symptoms: fever, aches, cough, shortness of breath?• Have you come in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19?• Are you currently waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test?• Have you traveled outside Indiana over the last 14 days?• I understand my responsibility to not come to work if I have symptoms of COVID-19 or have recently come into contact with someone who has COVID-19.• I understand my responsibility to comply with [the restaurant’s] health and sanitation standards.
We are a banquet venue, can we use a roll top chafer in a cafeteria style served meal to shield guests from food?
These are great … we could easily create a form for you if that’s helpful.
If you choose to utilize thermal scans of employees please note that the CDC states it’s 100 degrees and above
We are a restaurant not a bar however we ca
How do recommend the servers and expediters serve plates to the guest?
have a counter along with tables. Can we seat people at the counter with distance between each?
Debbie - with regards to the banquet venue - you can use a chafer - however, no self serve of food by a guest . You must have staff serve each guest. I would also recommend connecting with the health department to talk through the particulars of your physical setup for service.
JHoover - I would need to understand the counter dimensions and layout of the space to best answer your question.
10 stool counter spaced 1 1/2 feet apart
Can we require an employee to get a doctors note to return to work, if they have any symptoms?
Distance at 6' is the critical criteria to meet with a counter. Also consider 6' table to table in all directions.
Have these slides been distributed as well?
Can we get a copy of the Axiom deck?
Patrick & Brenda - this is William Knox and I am the Director of the Grand Park Sports Campus in Westfield, IN.Knowing that the restaurant and lodging industries are both heavily reliant on out of area visitors, what recommendations would you give to sports tourism facilities to help the governor understand the importance of developing separate guidelines for outdoor facilities that provide acceptable numbers such that we can program the facility for activity as long as the facility has the ability to adhere to social distancing guidelines?Currently, the guidelines are such that facilities similar to ours are not able to open until May 24th and at that time we can only have 100 people on the entire 400-acre campus.
Thank you all for presenting! This has been fantastic and helpful.
William - let’s connect via phone - 317-902-3772. I am moderating another panel in two minutes. . .
We provided that information to the governor, William.
What about napkin holders on the tables?
I also am happy to talk … and support you and Sports Indiana in this effort. We NEED Grand Park to be open!
Please also watch for +- accuracy of the thermometer. Medical grade thermometer need to be used
