Dear Friends & Family,

Enjoying a good meal with the people we love is one of the most important pieces of our lives, a sentiment that is at the heart of our restaurants. We will continue to welcome you at both of our locations (Nero and Sign of the Whale) while also closely monitoring the latest official health recommendations. We will continue to update you of any changes in the business hours.

As a company, we have always held ourselves to the highest standards of not only hospitality but also sanitation and food safety.  As we all evaluate our daily routines in light of the increased concern about the COVID-19 virus, we have further strengthened all cleaning protocols and have taken the following additional precautions to help prevent the spread of coronavirus:

· Increased the frequency for disinfection of high-touch areas throughout the restaurants with sanitizing solutions that meet EPA recommendations

· Installed hand sanitizer dispensers throughout 

· Encouraged employees who exhibit any symptoms of flu or Coronavirus to report their illness to management and stay home, with paid sick leave

· Required all vendors and delivery partners to bolster their own safeguards 

As you’ve likely heard, the CDC advises people as a general rule to take the following steps to protect themselves from coronavirus. Wash your hands frequently

· Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands

· Avoid close contact with people who are sick

· Stay home if you’re sick

· Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze

· Wear a face mask if you are sick or caring for someone who is sick and unable to wear a face mask

· Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces

Keep safe and we hope to see you soon.
