Offering Guidance to Restaurant Owners

NSF’s Paul Medeiros will present Dining on Thin Ice: Strategies for Promoting Safer Indoor Dining and Reassuring Customers During Winter Months, offering guidance to help businesses feel prepared to survive the winter. As the temperatures begin to cool down and patios close for the season, countless restaurant owners and managers are looking to reopen their indoor dining rooms. While many restaurant goers are excited to dine in at their favorite spots, many more are concerned about the risk of coronavirus.

Attendees are invited to join NSF for a review of the lessons we have learned as we have helped businesses ensure operating continuity and implement COVID-19 programs through our Checked by NSF™ program.

NSF, a global public health organization, has been dedicated to protecting and improving human health for more than 70 years. Since the onset of the pandemic, we’ve been investigating effective ways for businesses to reduce coronavirus risk, and we look forward to sharing our expertise with you.
