HOW YOUR RESTAURANT CAN SURVIVE COVID-19?
1. MAKE YOUR RESTAURANT AS CLEAN AS POSSIBLE
The foremost step to combat coronavirus at your restaurant is to keep it clean as much as possible. The EPA has created a list which you can find here about disinfectants effective for killing SARS-CoV-2. You have to pay special attention to high-touch items or surfaces. Sanitize doors and switches daily. Provide antibacterial gloves to your front desk executives. Try everything to make your guests feel your restaurant is a safe place for eating and spending some quality time.
2. EQUIP YOUR WAITER STAFF TO DEAL WITH SICK CUSTOMERS

- Provide personal protective equipment (PPE) like gloves or masks to your staff
- Make tissues and napkins readily available
- Provide disinfectants to the guests
