We at Catanese Classic Seafood and Chef 2 Chef Foods continue to closely monitor the emergence of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). At this time, no one knows how severe this outbreak will be and given the uncertainty, we are taking proactive steps to address several business concerns. First and foremost, the safety of our staff and our guests are our greatest priority. We want to maintain a safe workplace and encourage practices protecting the health and well being of our employees, customers, visitors and all others. We also want to ensure the continuity of business operations in the event of a pandemic.

We ask that all employees and visitors to cooperate in taking steps to reduce the transmission of communicable diseases in the workplace.

Employees are reminded of the following:
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your mouth with tissues whenever you sneeze or cough, and discard used tissues in the trash.
• Wash your hand frequently with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds.
• Avoid people who are sick, especially with respiratory symptoms.
• Clean frequently touched surfaces.
• Please do not shake hands with other employees, customers or visitors currently.
• Maintain a three-foot social distance when communicating with others.

Catanese Classic Seafood and Chef 2 Chef Foods have implemented an additional level of precautionary protocol as the virus has been detected in the US. We have also provided alcohol-based hand sanitizers throughout the workplace and in common areas. Cleaning sprays, wipes and disinfectants have been provided to clean frequently touched objects and surfaces such as telephones and keyboards.
It is critical that employees and customers do not enter the facility while they are experiencing respiratory symptoms such as a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills or fatigue. Many times, with the best of intentions, employees report to work even though they feel ill, however following the CDCs recommendation, we ask that employees and customers remain at home until at least 24 hours after they are free of a fever (100 degrees or more) without the use of fever reducing medications.

Please contact the human resources department with any questions or concerns.
