Employees are being asked to wash their hands a minimum of every 30 minutes and every time they interact with cash. The company also provided Purell Wipes as a way for workers to regularly sanitize their hands in addition to handwashing. Employers ae frequently disinfecting other items they may touch as well.
Chick-fil-A said it’s encouraging employees to ask guests using credit/debit for payment to swipe their own cards. Additionally, to further limit person-to-person contact, diners are encouraged to use mobile ordering and mobile payment through Chick-fil-A’s app. Delivery is live at many restaurants, too.
As an added precaution, many employees are wearing face protection while working in restaurants. Chick-fil-A first announced it was closing dining room seating March 15.
