First and foremost, the health, safety, and well-being of our patrons and guests is the New Deal Cafe’s #1 priority. Reports on the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, continue to dominate the media and so we thought it would be prudent to reassure you that we are taking every precaution that we can.
Please know that DC Vegan has & continues to adhere to strict food-safe procedures and regulations while serving food and drink. Management has spoken with employees to make sure they are vigilant about hand washing and keeping all public areas clean and sanitized. Their cleaning measures include a sanitizing agent for all surfaces, including counter tops, tables & chairs, bathroom facilities (with anti-bacterial soap available for hand-washing), door handles (both indoor & outdoor), and safe dishwashing procedures for all glassware, dishes, etc.
The Cafe’s bar only uses glassware that has been thoroughly cleaned and sanitized with safe dishwashing procedures. In addition, there are hand sanitizers available at the bar for customers to use. All areas are thoroughly wiped down with a sanitizing agent.
The best way to prevent the spread of illnesses from respiratory viruses are the same that should be taken with the flu. We recommend every guest & patron follow the CDC guidelines of regularly washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and/or using alcohol-based hand sanitizers, avoiding contact with eyes/nose/mouth, and not attending events if you have any symptom of respiratory illness, including coughing or sneezing.
We are all in this together and together we can keep each other healthy & safe with good healthy practices.
We wish everyone well!
Thank you for your continued support!
