CALIFORNIA: LA County Restaurant Capacity Increased from 25 > 50%

Social Distancing in LA County

“Anyone can cook, but only the fearless can be great”

Several non-restaurant workers learned the names of the major kitchen roles, including maître d, chef de cuisine, and sous chef, from the movie Ratatouille™. Yes, we are talking about the Disney® animated film that points to the talking mouse, Remy, that displays heroism as he saves the infamous Parisian restaurant and amazes critics.

The movie centers around the idea that anyone can cook, but only the best can truly stand out. That said, while we have all likely had dreams of becoming a famous stand out and serving up delectable treats in Paris, many of us just live vicariously through the American restaurant-going practices and let someone else do all the hard work so we can enjoy the flavorful combinations – whether Ratatouille or some other delicious delight.

Slowing the shutdown, and NOT just in the kitchen

While that sounds amazing and you might be thinking of that favorite dish at this very moment, bear in mind that officials in L.A. County California have had to make some tough choices.

LA County Restaurant Capacity Increased

As of April 4, 2021, restaurants and Churches can now operate at 50% capacity versus 25%, and gyms can now go from 10% to 25%. These restrictions are more stringent than the state regulations.

“A chef makes. A thief takes”

Another famous quote from the Ratatouille™ movie came from the owner of the restaurant when he said, “Chef makes. Thief takes.” This is applicable when we think of COVID-19 and all that the virus has already taken from our society.

Little chefs in the making?

These restrictions have left some people almost scratching their head and asking, “What can I do?”

Maybe your spouse, partner, or even one of your kids could [learn to] cook up a delectable surprise – even if they do not have a little mouse to guide them along the way or hiding in their chef hat.

Perhaps if you buy them a chef hat, they might be more likely to play the part and help you and your loved ones remain safe. (?)

Wearing many hats as an employer

Many businesses (and not just in L.A. County) have been cited for COVID-19 non-compliance. That said, employers have a distinct responsibility to keep their employees safe.

  3. Are you familiar with the means of transmission?
  4. Can you list the impacts of the virus on the workplace?
  5. What are the ways I can reduce exposure?
