Keeping Your Restaurant Safe During Covid-19

Covid-19 has presented a lot of restaurant owners with many challenges. Whether your restaurant is getting ready to re-open or you’re looking for some extra safety precautions, My Safe Meeting is here to help! Our social distancing products can give restaurant owners some solutions to make sure your restaurant is safe for all your guests and employees. Here are some tips and products we can offer you to help! 

Signage to the Outside of your Restaurant

Make communication with your customers easy by adding outdoor signage to your restaurant. You can post that the restaurant is indeed open, that you offer curbside pickup, and that you offer delivery options as well. You can also use this signage to remind customers to wear their masks and to stay 6 feet apart. By displaying this information outside, potential customers who walk by your restaurant will know everything you’re offering. So whether they choose to go in right away or not, they’ll know the options they have for your restaurant and your policies.

Protective Partitions and Barriers Between Tables

Adding partitions or barriers between tables in your restaurant is a must. This will reduce the spread of germs being circulated in the air. We offer custom booth dividers as well as 4-way dividers for the tables themselves. We also offer sink dividers for your bathroom! We have many options and can help install these for you easily.

Standing Divider Walls 

To take the barriers a step further, we also offer standing dividing walls for you to place wherever you think might need some more isolation. These are extremely easy to move around yourself so you can place them wherever you see fit any day.

No Touch Hand-Sanitizing Station & Banner

It’s a good idea to place hand sanitizing stations in your restaurant’s high trafficked areas. This could include your front door, outside the bathroom, or any other area you see fit. Adding a banner to your sanitizing station can also make it stand out to customers so that they are more likely to use it. It’s easy to just walk by a sanitizer station if it’s just standing alone, but adding a banner will make the area pop and get people’s attention.

Plexiglass Barriers Are Up to Stop the Spread of Viruses – Do They Actually Work? 

In the last 6 months, we’ve seen plexiglass partitions put up everywhere! They’re in grocery stores, reception desks, restaurants, on political debate stages, etc. The thinking is that these barriers will help prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, do they actually work? While we’ve seen these partitions put up everywhere, we have also continued seeing COVID-19 cases rise. Here is some information we have found. 

Plexiglass Can Prevent Close-Range Transmission

When people are close together in public settings, plexiglass partitions can definitely give you some protection. The partitions will block large droplets that leave your mouth and nose when you talk, cough, or sneeze. However, experts say that even if you are in a setting that has plexiglass partitions, you still need to have a mask on. 

Why isn’t Plexiglass Totally COVID Proof? 

While the plexiglass will shield you and others from large droplets, it won’t shield you from all the particles and germs in the air. It’s simply inevitable that small droplets and particles will make their way into the air and then continue to float around. The partitions aren’t magic, the particles will float around them too. As mentioned above, this is why other precautions are necessary as well such as masks, social distancing, opening doors and windows for more airflow, etc. 

Installing Plexiglass & Barriers

Even though we have found that plexiglass won’t 100% protect one from COVID-19, it is still a valuable and necessary precaution. The more precautions you take the better, right? Here are some of the options we have that we would be more than happy to provide to you and help you install.

Where Should I Place Social Distancing Signage?

As business places and public places begin to open up, it is the responsibility of the owners and authorities to enable their visitors to abide by the social distance practices. It is then important to understand how and where to use social distancing signage to help curb the spread of the virus.

Let’s go over specific places you should place social distancing signage and why.

Entrances and exits 

If your business environment has the facilities, designate a separate entrance and exit into your building. This will help to encourage social distancing and also aid traffic flow control. You can also put signs in places to remind people of the need to have physical distance, but you should also be vocal about it.

If the visitors have to go through a temperature check before getting into the building, coordinate the checking in an orderly manner. Some of the signs you can place at entrances and exits include wall signs, arrows to direct, floor tapes, barricades, and many more. 

Waiting areas

The lobby or waiting room is an area where people congregate and can often forget to observe the social distancing rule. This place is a great place to put the signs and labels to remind the people. If you have chairs that are stack together, use seat markers to indicate which seat is available for use and which isn’t. 

Warehouse or distribution centers 

Another place you can put the social distancing signage is the warehouse. Be innovative with the traffic patterns to encourage social distancing and put signs in various places within the facilities. Floor tape, adhesive floor markers, and wall signs will be of great help.

Communal places

You can also put social distancing signage in communal places like the restroom, break rooms, or cafeteria. Put spacing reminders in places where lines will be formed and help encourage hand washing in the restrooms through the use of signs.

Work areas

The employees that work in manufacturing or areas where the cooking is done as in the case of a restaurant too need to be protected. So, to keep out crowding in areas where stocks are located, guidelines need to be put in place.

Floor tapes and signage that stands out in specific parts of the room will also go a long way to help.


Curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus is the responsibility of everyone. Store owners and other business owners should take social distancing seriously. Invest in signage that helps you sensitize your visitors and customers about the dangers of contracting the virus. 

Handbills, wall signs, floor tape, custom signs, and many more will help your cause. My Safe Meeting will help you take care of all the signage your business needs to be vocal about social distancing. The virus has changed your business, and we are here to help all along the way.

Stay Safe With Social Distancing Products

Businesses are beginning to open back up and it is important to make sure your business is a safe place for customers. How do you ensure a safe place for your customers? Social distancing products are available to assist. Products such as hand sanitizing stations, room dividers, shields, safety signs, etc. will help make customers feel safe and also increase the amount of business you get. Customers are looking for safe establishments so if your business follows safety protocols, customers are more likely to visit. Here are some of the popular social distancing products that will help you accomplish your business safety goals. 

Safety Shields 

Not everything can be done from a distance so safety shields often come in handy. Safety shields can be used when checking out a customer at a store, serving a customer food, working 1-1 with someone in a classroom, examining people at doctors or nurses offices, etc. These tasks are impossible to do if 6ft apart so safety shields are here to be that barrier to ensure the transaction and encounter happen safely.

Hand Sanitizing Stations

Customers often like to take a good look at things before they make a purchase. In order to do that they need to pick up the item. Customers will also need to carry around a cart if they plan on getting multiple items. This all means that customers will be touching things in your business that other customers have most likely touched before. In order to stay safe and keep germs away, hand sanitizing stations are a must. Providing hand sanitizing stations will let customers feel safe when touching things throughout your store. If your business is not a store where people will be touching items, hand sanitizing stations are still encouraged as touching anything other people come in contact with can transfer germs and viruses.

These hand sanitizing dispensers are visible and easily accessible. Purchase one to put at the front door of your business so that all incoming and outgoing customers can sanitize their hands to keep safe. 

Safety Signs

People are still getting used to social distancing and making sure they are safe in public settings. By creating safety signs for your business, you can help guide people throughout your store or business in the safest way possible. Safety signs can be stickers for the floor directing customers which way to walk, they can be posters explaining to customers your store rules and health tips, they can be signs on a door to signal which way customers should enter and exit, etc.

Room Dividers

Room dividers are ideal for hotels, restaurants, retail stores, office spaces, airports, public restrooms, etc. Room dividers help businesses who don’t want to sacrifice capacity in order to stay socially distanced. They can be custom made to fit your business aesthetic and fit any area you need them to be placed in.
