CKL RESTAURANTS AND EATERIES - OUR CHEAT SHEET FOR YOUR PHASE 2 RE-OPENING TOMORROW TO MAXIMIZE SAFETY AND MINIMIZE LIABILITY. BON APPETIT!

Many CKL restaurants are re-opening for Phase 2 as of tomorrow, in an outdoor capacity for now.

To assist with the transition, here is a tip sheet of recommendations for ensuring a safe re-opening, while promoting the health and safety of everyone:

- patio must be open to the air; no tents, structures or canopies. Umbrellas are allowed for sun shade.

- the required distance between adjacent edges of tables is two metres.

- temporary table dividers may be installed to make physical distancing easier for restaurants with communal seating or larger tables.

- groups must be seated two metres from another group.

- ensure that a distance of two metres is maintained between customers or groups that are together. Co-mingling should be avoided.

- limit the time servers spend within two metres of customers.

- allow space for the safe circulation of customers and staff.

- consider a reservation system to avoid lines of waiting customers.

- ensure that lines of waiting customers do not come close to patio customers.

- demarcate floors with markers for any areas where a line-up may occur.

- mark the direction of travel to designate entrances and exits, pick up areas and washrooms.

- post signage promoting physical distancing upon entry.
