COVID-19 Restaurant Reopening Playbook for Phase 2

16 June 2020

By: The Chope Group

A playbook of best practices and checklists for restaurants and F&B establishments operating in Singapore. Owners, managers, chefs, marketers, and staff can relate official guidelines with restaurant procedures for the new normal.

After months of dine-in suspensions, restaurants in Singapore can finally look forward to hosting diners again in their premises on 19 June. But navigating this newer normal is not going to be easy. With safe distancing regulations, health and hygiene monitoring, and the COVID-19 threat still looming, the restaurant experience as we know it is forever changed.

Post-circuit breaker, restaurants are faced with more responsibilities other than serving diners. Your restaurant needs to create an environment that limits the potential spread of COVID-19 on surfaces and from person-to-person.

Chope’s COVID-19 Restaurant Reopening Playbook sets out industry guidelines, best practices, and checklists for owners, managers, marketers, staff, and F&B personnel. The playbook comprehensively covers pointers in the advisory issued by Singapore’s multi-ministry taskforce on COVID-19.

While written with Singapore in mind, restaurants across the region will also find it useful as it entails recommendations specific to the industry. By taking concrete steps, you’ll ensure that your restaurant is safely well-equipped for staff, diners, and third party contractors.

With restaurants resuming dine-in service, we’re confident that recovery is on the horizon.
