Dear Beloved Community,
We know this is a difficult time in our country. We make our food in Oakland, California which is now under a strict "shelter in place" directive. We are open for takeout and to ship our baked goods, but we are taking this directive seriously.
In addition to the protocols we are following for keeping our food safe in the midst of the outbreak, we have also implemented these precautions in our bakery:
Screening - We are screening employees who come to work. They must be feeling 100%. If they are not, we are sending them home. We hope for coronavirus tests to become widely available so that we can all have confidence we are free of the virus while being out and about.
Social Distancing - We have instructed employees to practice social distancing so that they maintain a safe distance from other employees. We only permit 2 people at our work tables and 3 people at our break table at a time so that people can maintain the proper safe distance. We are encouraging employees to take their breaks in the sun on sunny days.
Sanitation - Sanitation is of course of the upmost importance. It always is in the food industry, but now we are taking extra measures to sanitize surfaces like door handles, freezer/cooler handles,bathrooms, break tables, POS screens and oven handles every 2 hours throughout the day.
Facial Masks - Everyone in Mariposa's Bakery will be wearing a facial mask to prevent people from making others or getting themselves ill.
We are here for you ... thank you for being here for us. Wishing you the best of health throughout the Spring.
- Patti & Mariposa
