PREVENTION POLICY FOR COVID-19
Our top priority continues to be the health and safety of our staff, our customers and our community. Our staff is 100% vaccinated! Breadfarm best practices include:
- daily health screenings
- frequent washing of hands
- increased ventilation
- CDC sanitization
At Breadfarm, taking care of our employees and the community is important to us. Thanks to Access Washington, we created an in depth COVID-19 manual outlining procedures, protocols and best practices. This manual is updated regularly by our general manager, Kathy Jewell. By following local, state, CDC and DOH guidelines & directives we are working diligently to ensure our safety and the safety of all those we come in contact with.
We are regularly monitoring COVID symptoms of all staff. Those who are sick, symptomatic, or have been in close contact with someone who is, are being asked to stay home. We are conducting temp checks before the start of every shift. Staff has been trained on proper hand washing protocols. Work stations within the bakery have been modified to provide distancing whenever possible. All Breadfarmers have access to PTO, available after 60 days of employment; in addition medical benefits are offered for those who work 30+ hours.
High touch surfaces and work areas are thoroughly cleaned mid-shift and end of shift with a sanitizing solution. Ensuring proper ventilation with outside air helps reduce the concentration of airborne contaminants, including viruses. We recognize that good ventilation is critical to keeping our staff safe and have recently 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.
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.
