The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued an alert with safety tips for restaurant, and food and beverage businesses to protect their workers from coronavirus exposure while they provide curbside pickup and takeout service.

OSHA recommends these businesses implement the following:

  • Reserve parking spaces near the front door for curbside pickup only.
  • Avoid direct hand-off, when possible.
  • Display a door or sidewalk sign with the services available (e.g., take-out, curbside), instructions for pickup, and hours of operation.
  • Practice sensible social distancing by maintaining six feet between co-workers and customers. Mark six-foot distances with floor tape in pickup lines, encourage customers to pay ahead of time by phone or online, temporarily move workstations to create more distance and install plexiglass partitions, if feasible.
  • Allow workers to wear masks over their nose and mouth to prevent them from spreading the virus.
  • Provide a place to wash hands and alcohol-based hand rubs containing at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Encourage workers to report any safety and health concerns.

The entire list of guidelines is available here.
