We have a BC Supreme Court Hearing on April 7th, we are petitioning the court for the release information and documents denied us by the BC Liquor Control and Licensing for our defence of the seized whisky. In light of the pandemic this hearing may be postponed, we'll keep everyone notified as we move sloser.
It has just been learned that dogs cannot pass on the Corona Virus and that The World Health Organization has arranged for all quarantined dogs to be released. So now we know WHO let the dogs out.
On the serious side of things, we would like everyone to know what we are doing to protect our guests, staff and families as we navigate through the Covid-19 pandemic.
Interestingly, we have received no information or direction from our health inspector or the Fraser Health Authority during this crisis. Over the past couple of weeks, we have been working very closely with our staff, discussing additional ways to keep everybody safe and training everyone on our new policies. We have always taken our food safety policies very seriously and have expanded on them. We have developed our Health and Safety Policies and Procedures over the 33 years we have been operating and feel we should share them with our valued guests and friends.
As well as avoiding sick people and being ready to self-isolate, these are just a few of the policies we have in place to keep everyone safe.
WASH YOUR HANDS!: (this cannot be said enough) wash your hands when arriving at Fets Whisky Kitchen, before work, when you get home, when you get off the bus, out of a cab, before and after using the bathroom, after shaking someone's hand and before and after you eat or prepare food. Wash your hands repeatedly throughout the day. It takes 20 seconds for the soap to breakdown the molecules of viruses before rinsing them off your hands
Avoid touching your face
Avoid shaking anyone's hand, if you do then go wash your hands, rather than shake hands; bow and curtsy it's safer. You don't know who's hand they just shook or what they recently touched
Use paper towels to open bathroom doors, use coat sleeves to open public doors
Carry Sani-Wipes and use them on grocery carts and baskets
Push elevator and crosswalk buttons using the back of your hands or elbows
Do not share drinks, cigarettes, e-cigarettes, joints or pipes
WASH YOUR HANDS AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY MEMBERS, COWORKERS AND ROOMATES TO WASH THEIR HANDS!
