How is Cooper’s responding to COVID-19, commonly referred to as novel coronavirus?
Novel coronavirus (COVID-19), is something none of us take lightly. The team at Cooper’s is seeking to minimize any unwelcome transmission of germs by requiring enhanced cleaning, disinfecting and sanitizing protocols and heightened monitoring of anyone who might have come into contact or exposed to COVID-19, especially in common areas and public restrooms.
As part of our commitment to the health and well-being of our Team Members, Guests and the larger community, we are carefully monitoring the situation and are in regular contact with health agencies for information and guidance. As we do our part, we ask that our patrons, too, take necessary precautions and follow guidelines from the Pennsylvania Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control. Please be mindful of everyone’s health and safety – your own as well as those around you. If you are compromised by an existing health condition, if you are not feeling well, or exhibiting symptoms of illness, please do not attend an event here or come out for lunch or dinner. We do deliver via Doordash if you need a Cooper’s fix 🙂
We continue to implement preventive measures in line with their recommendations. We have health and safety protocols in place, including:
- Salt and pepper shakers as well as sugar and sweeter caddies upon request. Removed and sanitized from tables after each use.
- All menus are sanitized between each use.
- Training for Team Members, with ongoing reinforcement on a regular basis
- Defined cycles for frequent cleaning and disinfection of targeted areas
- Easy access to handwashing facilities and hand sanitizers
- Quick response to spills, trash and other situations
- End-of-day sanitation procedures for restroom, kitchen and other facilities
Additionally, our onsite leaders are communicating with our Team Members about illness prevention, including the CDC’s recommendation of everyday preventive actions to stop the spread of germs, such as:
- Staying home when sick
- Washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
- Following proper respiratory cough etiquette
- Avoiding close contact with people who are sick
- Avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- We will continue to adjust our operations according to the recommendations of health authorities as the situation develops.
