Under Level 3, NOSH and many businesses, are allowed to operate provided they can do so in a safe manner.
The Ministry of Primary Industries (MPI) offers all businesses guidelines how to stay safe . As a commercial kitchen, nearly all of their guidelines are our everyday practice, so you can be assured we are well placed to provide you with great food in a safe environment.
Frequent hand-washing, cleaning and sanitising surfaces, not touching your face and not coughing into your hands are something our Chefs do automatically, and you can be assured that our high standards will not slip.
We are fortunate to have enough space in our kitchen that our Chefs will be able to maintain an appropriate distance from each other while working, and any interaction with outsiders (deliveries for example) are able to be undertaken in a safe manner - any non-staff member entering the premise must scan in using the Covid-19 app. Incoming ingredients must be left at the door - there is no contact between delivery staff and kitchen staff. We will also retain a database of all our customers, so in the very unlikely event that one of our staff falls ill, we will be able to trace anyone who may be at risk.
MPI state that experience with recent similar diseases, such as SARS, suggest Covid-19 is unlikely to be spread through food. We will be playing our part to ensure all our staff act in a safe and hygienic manner so that you can dine with us in confidence.
