COVID-19 positive protocols
We want to share the protocols that immediately go into effect in the case of a presumed positive or positive test result for COVID-19.
Our Human Resources team is in frequent communication with the affected team member. We will notify staff and conduct a hospital-grade sanitization of the entire facility.
The sanitization is a state of the art service that sprays an electrostatically charged hospital and food grade disinfectant onto all surfaces and hard to reach places. It uses a disinfectant cleaner which has been registered by the EPA as effective for use against COVID-19 and kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, sanitizes 99.999% of bacteria on food contact surfaces with no rinse required, and eliminates odor at a molecular level.
Human Resources contacts staff that worked in close contact with the affected team member and places them on quarantine for 14 days. In compliance with the Department of Public Health, the affected team member will remain off work until at least 10 days have passed after symptoms first appeared and 3 days after recovery (meaning that fever has been gone for 72 hours without use of medication and respiratory symptoms have subsided). Our HR department continues to work with the affected team member and those team members who are self-quarantining to ensure they have sufficient leave until they are able to return to work.
The following stores are open after our hospital-grade sanitization process:
