PREVENTION POLICY FOR COVID-19
Our top priority continues to be the health and safety of our staff, our customers and our community.
At Breadfarm, taking care of our employees and the community is important to us. Thanks to Access Washington, in 2020, we created an in depth COVID-19 manual outlining procedures, protocols and best practices. This manual is updated quarterly by our GM, Kathy Jewell. By following local, state, CDC and DOH guidelines & directives we are working diligently to ensure safety in the workplace.
Staff who are sick, symptomatic, or have been in close contact with someone who is, are being asked to stay home. Staff have been trained on proper hand washing protocols. High touch surfaces and work areas are cleaned twice daily, mid-shift and at the end of the shift with a sanitizing solution. The bakery has proper ventilation with outside air to help reduce the concentration of airborne contaminants, including viruses. Good ventilation is critical to keeping our staff safe. We installed a positive air purifier system to bring filtered air into the bakery, creating a slightly higher interior pressure that maintains an overall outward airflow through cracks and seams. Each department within the bakery has access to fresh air by means of an opening window or door. In addition, our staff has access to PTO, available after 60 days of employment; in addition medical benefits for those who work 30+ hours.
We are happy to provide a contact-free transaction by having you place an online order, call us upon arrival and we will place your order outside.
