Cincinnati Magazine shares Golden Lamb's new safety features
Restaurants introduce new safety measures as patios and dining rooms reopen
By Victoria Moorwood, Cincinnati Magazine
"As Cincinnati restaurants begin to reopen, hand sanitizing stations, masked servers, and social distance–marked floors are the new dining-out norm. On Friday, May 15, Ohio restaurants put many of these practices into place as they opened their patios, followed by dining room service this Thursday, May 21...
...At Lebanon’s The Golden Lamb, one of these additional measures will include 'stop and scrub' handwashing reminders for staff. 'Every 20 minutes, everybody stops what they’re doing, or takes a quick pause, and does a really good 20-second handwashing,' says general manager and operating partner Bill Kilimnik.
The historic inn and restaurant will also require staff members to take their temperatures before their shifts and regularly clean high-touch surfaces using a 'gold sticker' system. 'We’ve marked all of the high-touch areas with these little gold dots,' Kilimnik explains. 'Every two hours, we’ll call Gold Dot, and everybody stops for a second and they clean the nearest gold dots within arms’ reach.'"
