NOKTogether | Restaurant protocols reinforced

The B.C. Restaurant and Foodservices Association is reminding restaurants and pubs of Covid-19 protocols.

  • Contact tracing is highly recommended. If a known Covid case was on your premise, you need to be able to contact your guests to inform them, so they can monitor their symptoms and self-isolate if needed. Contact details are to be recorded for one person per family/party either from reservation booking or recorded upon arrival prior to being seated.    
  • Required two metres or six feet distance between chairs, not tables. There must be a two metre or six foot distance between the chairs from table to table, this distance is not between the tables. 
  • Sanitizing frequently. Every table and all chairs must be sanitized between seatings, along with high touch areas (i.e bathroom doors, menus, condiments, card machines, front desks) on a frequent schedule. 
  • Washing/sanitizing hands. Staff members need to be washing/sanitizing their hands between tables, before serving food, taking away touched menus, processing payments/dealing with cash, clearing tables etc.

Make sure you read and understand the most recent Order of the Provincial Health Officer at  https://www2.gov.bc.ca/assets/gov/health/about-bc-s-health-care-system/office-of-the-provincial-health-officer/covid-19/covid-19-pho-order-nightclubs-food-drink.pdf

You are required under section 42 of the Public Health Act to comply with this order. Failure to comply with this order is an offence under the Public Health Act.
