Turning Point Restaurants Coronavirus Statement
Turning Point is closely monitoring the impact coronavirus is having on the communities in which we operate. As always, our number one priority is protecting the well-being of employees and customers, and this principle guides each and every decision we make.
At this time, all Turning Point Restaurants remain open for outdoor dining and indoor dining at limited capacity. We are also open during our usual operating hours of 7am-3pm for contactless curbside pick-up and delivery, through Uber Eats, Door Dash & GrubHub, and offer contactless payment options via up n’ go using Apple Pay, Venmo and Google Pay. We are taking proactive steps to help ensure the safety in our restaurants across all our communities in partnership with local and national health authorities, and as the situation continues to evolve, so will our policies.
Is it safe to eat Turning Point food and beverages during coronavirus?
COVID-19 is not a foodborne illness according to the CDC’s frequently asked questions. While it may be possible to become infected if an object that has the virus on it comes in contact with a person’s mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes, this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. Additionally, before preparing or eating food, it is important to always wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds for general food safety.

- The health and safety of restaurant employees and customers is a top priority. In addition to our standard sanitation procedures, as part of The Turning Points response to coronavirus, our restaurant teams have:
- Increased the frequency of cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfection of high-touchpoint surfaces,

- Where available, increased the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer as a supplement to frequent handwashing,
- Trained our crew members of current social distancing procedures,
- Implemented contactless operations,
- Required any employee who is ill to stay home from work.
Additionally, we are providing scenario-based guidance to restaurant management on how to work through various COVID-19 related situations, and communicating health and safety guidance updates from federal health authorities. We will continue to evaluate all safety measures currently in place, and adjust accordingly as we remain focused on the health and safety of restaurant employees and you, our customers.
The wearing of masks by all employees is mandatory in all Turning Point Restaurants. Additionally, our supply chain has done an amazing job of securing masks for restaurant employees.
