Even though restaurants are only allowed to offer delivery and pick-up, it doesn’t mean that the employees or customers are completely safe from catching COVID-19. Really, this executive order was made to help reduce human to human contact as much as possible. That said, many restaurant owners have started serving customers 1 at a time--which is smart--but other measures can be taken as well. Such measures include: establishing a designated pick up area for curbside delivery, a waiting area for delivery drivers, and if you want to go the extra mile, a special screening area to take customer temperatures. To make this a reality, use Pop Up Canopies or Tents.
Designated Pick Up For Curbside Delivery
To keep people out of your storefront location, make a sign that says “Pick Up Here” and attach it to a pop up canopy. These large tents will be hard to miss. Less customers will be likely to wander into the store if this is in their way.
Designated Parking for Delivery Drivers
If you’re smart, you are using apps like GrubHub and Uber Eats to offer delivery; however, drivers are on a tight schedule; therefore, they are perhaps more likely to wander inside than even the direct customers. To minimize this from happening often, use a pop up canopy to show delivery drivers wear to park. Ideally, you should only have 1 or 2 drivers present at a time, so this is also a great way to limit car build up.
Designated Screening Areas
If you want to leave no stone unturned, then use a pop up canopy to establish a temperature taking station. This solution is for those who don’t want to risk letting anyone inside at all unless they are sure that they are healthy.
