Safety Plan for Re-Opening in place for The Flying Pig Yaletown 1024 853 Russ Jahns

Safety Plan for Re-Opening in place for The Flying Pig Yaletown

The Flying Pig Yaletown re-opens May 22, 2020

We’ve been working hard to to get our protocols in place to open for safe dine-in service beginning Friday May 22 at the Yaletown location of The Flying Pig.
Our hours will be daily from 3pm till late, with other locations opening in the coming days. We are excited to welcome back our guests and serve up some delicious choices from our menu offerings! 

WorkSafe BC and the Government of BC’s Restart Plan have been invaluable resources in helping us set guidelines in our return to business. Our number one goal will always continue to be the health and safety of our guests and our staff. With that in mind we’ve put a number of protocols in place to accomplish this and reinforce the trust we have always enjoyed from our guests.

 

We are following closely the WorkSafe BC guidelines and 4 steps to Reduce the Risk of Person-to-Person transmission and implementing their recommendations in preparation for regular inspections by their officers. Some of the many items that we are paying close attention to include the following:

  • installation of plexiglass barriers along the length of the bar
  • reducing the amount of seating to 50% capacity and ensuring a minimum of 2 meters distance between all tables and from chair back to chair back
  • enhanced cleaning protocols that see each table or bar seat sanitized between guests
  • single use, disposable menus
  • hand sanitizing stations placed at multiple locations around the room for both guests and staff (we encourage you to use them on arrival and as often as possible.
  • ample signage reminding both guests and staff of proper safe distancing and hand washing procedures.
  • regularly scheduled cleaning and sanitization of high touch surfaces and washrooms.
  • limited staffing, both in the kitchen and front of house comprised of teams that are always paired together to minimize cross over and increasing the bubble too much.
  • restriction of zones – only one bartender behind the bar, servers only their designated sections, small kitchen teams that stick to their assisted stations with ample distancing room between them.
  • Daily visitor and staff logs (this includes any potential interviews) – this includes mandatory tempature and health checks for all staff
  • Staff required to perform thorough hand-washing every thirty minutes.
  • Kitchen staff required to wear hats and/or hairnets.
  • uniforms left onsite and laundered after each shift by the restaurant.
  • Contact tracing for all guests, by asking one person in the party to share contact information in the possible event of a suspected exposure.

At this time, WorkSafe BC has advised us that masks are not required, but as the past few months have taught us all requirements are under constant review.

We hope to see many of you visit us again on your next opportunity and understand many of you may not be ready yet. We promise to work extremely hard to reinforce your trust in us so you’ll feel comfortable to dine out again.

All Flying Pig Group of Restaurant locations to close temporarily due to COVID19 1024 1024 Russ Jahns

All Flying Pig Group of Restaurant locations to close temporarily due to COVID19

With social distancing being recommended by both federal and provincial health authorities, the health and safety of our guests and employees continues to be our highest priority.  We have decided to close our doors in both Vancouver and Victoria until it is deemed safe to reopen.

Over the last 10 years, as a family-owned and small business, we have faced many challenges. Like our friends and colleagues across the Province and Country, we will be looking to the government, landlords, and suppliers, for support during these difficult times to help us overcome this one.

It is everyone’s responsibility to help stop the spread of this virus and flatten the curve and we encourage everyone to do their part. We thank you for your patience as we tread through these unprecedented waters.

We look forward to reopening our doors when the time is right for you and for our staff.  In the meantime, please stay safe and take care of yourself and each other.

John, Erik and the entire TFP/WildTale family.
