What restaurants in Miami are doing to protect customers from Coronavirus

Speaking out about safety measures being taken during Coronavirus outbreak

The hospitality industry will be hit hard due to COVID-19. Here’s what F&B establishments have to say.

Updated March 13, 2020

Dad always said that there are things you can control and then there’s “the circle of concern.” Whatever happens, will happen and we’re only here to be cautious and support the local restaurants and bars in Miami.

We’ll say it, again and again, cause repetition is always good. But yeah, stay home if you don’t feel 100%. Wash your hands until they fall off. If you feel good, that’s great but don’t touch anyone and wash your hands a little more. Mom said to always share but we think she’ll be ok if you keep your drinks and dishes to yourself in these times.

We’re here to support our local restaurants and bars so just be smart about it. We’re compiling a list of restaurants and bars that have taken to social media to assure their customers the preventive methods they are taking to keep their teams and customers safe. That’s all for now Hungries. We’re here for you.

If you’d like us to share more information about your restaurant or bar use #305FightsCoronavirus.

‘In light of COVID-19, which as of last night has its first confirmed case in Miami-Dade County, we have decided to take proactive measures to do our part to protect our community, including our team. For the time being, all of our drinks and food will be served in disposable containers. All of our tables, bar, and POS surfaces will be more frequently sanitized, our staff will increase their frequency of their own hand washing, and our bar will be equipped with hand sanitizer. We will also temporarily switch to sugar packets and paper napkins. Despite these proactive measures, we are calm, happy, and grateful to be able to continue serve our community. We encourage all healthy folks to continue to support local, independent businesses” @alldaymia
