As our community continues to feel the increased impact of this viral pandemic (COVID-19), we feel it is important to share with you what we are doing to help keep people safe and healthy at our stores. We are doing everything we can to provide a safe and sanitary environment for our customers and employees.
Whitey’s has always taken every effort to ensure our stores and manufacturing plant are as clean as possible. We have even further heightened our cleaning and disinfecting procedures to continue to maintain a healthy environment.
We are going to do everything in our power to keep our stores open and everyone working, but there is of course the potential that additional changes may be implemented as the situation evolves in order to ensure employee and customer well-being. We will be sure to communicate these changes as they come about.
A few of the areas we are increasing our cleaning procedure to product our customers and employees:
- Encouraging tap payment and digital payment (Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc.).
- Implementing even more extensive cleaning/sanitizing of the stores.
- While there is no food-contact with hands, we are encouraging employees to wash their hands between each customer.
- We’ve instructed employees who are not feeling well to stay home and self-monitor their symptoms.
Our hearts go out to all who have been affected by this outbreak and we would like to thank you in advance for your patience as we navigate this challenging situation one day at a time and determine how best to continue serving our loyal customers.
