Downtown Haddonfield announces its new campaign, highlighting measures to keep everyone safe while shopping and dining
“We want our visitors to know that Haddonfield cares deeply about their safety and well-being, as well as that of our business owners. We therefore have implemented a number of directives and best practices to keep everyone safe while enjoying our beautiful Downtown,” explained Remi Fortunato, PfH Retail Recruiter.
As our everyday lives continue to be altered due to COVID-19, Haddonfield businesses have adjusted to the ‘new normal’ by providing ways to safely shop in-store, online, and with contactless curbside pick-up; and to safely dine outdoors or use take-out and delivery services.
The Downtown is adhering to Governor Murphy’s guidelines by requiring visitors to wear masks indoors and outdoors during their visit, not only for their protection, but for the safety of others around them. Wherever possible, six feet of social distance should be maintained between visitors, and sanitizing protocols should be practiced.
What Outdoor Dining and Retail should look like:
Article from NJBiz.com:
Tables at restaurants will have to be spaced 6 feet apart. Gatherings are limited to eight people per table, and patrons need to maintain a 6-foot minimum distance from anyone outside of their group.
Face-coverings will have to be worn when away from their table.
Entry into the physical establishment is barred, except to access the restroom or to access outdoor dining areas, such as courtyards and rooftops. Patrons can also enter the restaurant for pick-up, or to place an order for takeout. In any case, they must wear a face covering while inside the restaurant.
Self-service options such as buffets and salad bars will not be allowed.
Tables, chairs and shared items, such as menus and pens, must be disinfected after each use. Restaurants must have installed physical barriers to divide customers from workers operating cash registers, bars and host stands.
That would be the same for retail, where shop owners must create physical barriers that would enforce social distancing – such as shield guards for cashiers and baggers – and designate floor markers 6 feet apart where customers would queue.
