SAGE Dining COVID-19 Plan of Action

Current SAGE Dining processes during COVID-19 exposure; this plan will be adjusted as necessary.

  • Review the employee handbook with Team Members emphasizing reporting illness, staying home if feeling ill, personal, and equipment sanitizing practices.
    • Heightened awareness and reminders of not to touch face during prep or service.
    • Reintroduce the SAGE Take 5 training about proper procedures for handwashing and glove use.
    • Mandatory gloves worn by all SAGE staff during service and prep time.
  • Wipe down and clean all surfaces in the dining hall and kitchen throughout the day using the appropriate sanitizer solution. This includes all bread boxes, water fountains, panini machines, and service rails in front of all food stations. Tongs and serving utensils will be washed after every division.
  • Prepare a contingency menu in case we become short-staffed or have service challenges.
    • Order backup inventory in case broader supply chains get interrupted. This includes food items, paper products as well as cleaning supplies and hand sanitizer.
  • Move to paper products: Plates, Bowls, Knives, Forks, Spoons.
    • Remove all salt and pepper shakers and condiments from tables and make them available in packet form.
    • Place individual wax/baking paper dispensers at all drink, condiment, and bar-type service areas (anywhere multiple people will touch things) for students to use in a disposable manner.
  • Salad Bar and Deli Bar will be replaced with pre-packed, “grab and go” items. This will include pre-packed salads, pre-packed fruit, and wrapped pre-made sandwiches.
  • All desserts will be changed to items that can be served in individual cookie bags.
  • Seasonings Bars (Taco Bar, Baked Potato Bar etc.) will be eliminated until risk has passed.
  • Sliced cups of fruit and vegetables for grades 1-4 will move to pre-packed and sealed items.
  • Student Snack Plan: Fruits that can only be peeled and using only prepackaged snacks for students has been instituted.
  • Hand sanitizers on each table.
  • Install additional hand sanitizer stations in the main dining room.
