Notice regarding Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

3/17/20

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) around the world. As the impact of this situation grows in the communities where we do business, we would like to share the steps that we’re taking to keep our Team Members and Customers safe.

At Tom’s, nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our Customers and our Team Members. In our restaurants, we are putting emphasis on the procedures that support our high standards in the areas of cleanliness and health. Some of the most important areas of focus are:

  • Ensuring that our handwashing practices are rigorously followed
  • Strictly requiring Team Members who don’t feel well to stay home and away from work
  • Frequently disinfecting commonly touched surfaces in all areas of our restaurants
  • Indoor dining areas and outside patios are closed to seating but Drive-Thru and Pick Up (Call Ahead) are still open for food service

Additionally, we have asked each of our Team Members to inform us of exposure to anyone diagnosed with coronavirus, or of any international travel. When appropriate, we will exclude Team Members from work to confirm that they are not infected with the virus.

We’ve taken steps to minimize large gatherings of Team Members, including the postponement of meetings and workshops. In order to accommodate working parents in the case of school closures, we are prepared to be even more flexible with scheduling in our restaurants.

Every day, we hold ourselves to very high cleanliness and health standards that are designed to maintain a safe and healthy environment in our restaurants. In addition, we remain watchful in learning more about this disease by monitoring developments closely and keeping informed of additional recommendations from Federal, State and City public health agencies.

At Tom’s Famous, we are committed to doing what’s right to protect our Customers and Team Members, and to do our part in preventing transmission of Coronavirus.

Thank you to our loyal Customers for your continued confidence and trust in our people and our company.

Respectfully,

George Valaskantjis
