We’re doing everything we can to minimise covid risks at Oyster Box this summer. Guest safety is really important to us, and we understand that customers may be concerned with rising case numbers. We’re continuing to take steps to ensure our restaurant is sanitized and well-ventilated; and that our customers and team remain safe and well.
Lateral flow testing
We offer weekly lateral flow tests to all of our team members, so that any asymptomatic cases can be identified.
Any team members who test positive, or who show symptoms, are required to isolate until they receive a negative PCR test result.
If a staff member tests positive, has symptoms, or needs to isolate while waiting for a test result, we provide an isolation pay scheme so that our team don’t lose pay while off work.
We reintroduced compulsory face masks for our team before this became a Government requirement. We’ll continue to monitor the situation, and adapt our face masks policy in accordance with Government guidelines and case numbers.
We kindly request that guests also wear face masks (when not seated at their table). We’ll review this as the Government advice changes.
We’re following Government guidelines regarding distancing and ensuring that our venues are well-ventilated.
Should you wish to have a distanced table, please do let us know when you book. We can’t always guarantee a certain type of table, but we’ll do our best to accommodate your requirements whenever we can.
If you would like to keep your distance, please do also consider dining outside of peak times. We’re often quieter on weekdays, or earlier on during service. You could also consider trying our sister restaurant in St Helier (Banjo), as this is often much less busy in the summer, so may be a better choice for those wanting a quiet table.
Cleaning & Sanitization
We continue to ensure that frequently-touched surfaces and bathrooms are sanitized on a regular basis throughout the day, using anti-viral cleaning products which are safe for a catering environment. We also have strict hand-washing protocols for staff, and ensure all employees and customers have easy access to hand sanitizer and hand-washing facilities on site. This includes separate hand washing areas and changing rooms for staff to use.
