Language Clarification

 In an effort to provide more clarity for the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) in the Restaurant Operating Protocol document, the language will now state the following:


Face coverings must always be worn by employees and it is suggested that guests wear them when entering and leaving the restaurant, removing them only while at their tables.

The previous language stated the following: 


Use protective equipment – a fabric face cover must always be worn by employees and guests.


The goal of this modification is to assist in more precise direction.
