Mia’s European Market would like to assure all of our customers that their health and well-being is of the utmost importance. Therefore, we are taking ALL the necessary steps and diligent precautions to protect them and their families amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
Mia’s European Market is implementing additional measures towards achieving the highest possible standard of hygiene and cleanliness. We have been closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization statements regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). On a moment-to-moment basis, we are monitoring the health professional’s guidance and suggestions as concerns for the spread of the virus heighten. Our store’s health and safety measures are designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses, including COVID-19, and include everything from handwashing hygiene and cleaning product specifications to common area cleaning procedures. Specific steps Mia’s European Market are taking include:
· Hand Hygiene: Proper and frequent handwashing is vital to help combat the spread of viruses. Our employees are reminded that cleanliness starts with this simple act. It’s important for their health and that of our customers.
· Public Spaces: The store has increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in public spaces, with a focus on the checkout stations and credit card machines, door handles frequently touched, including our fridge, freezer, and entrance doors, and shopping carts. We will not only take special measures to sanitize all of our surfaces at the end of each shopping day, but we will also ensure that we disinfect all areas that are frequently used during the day.
· Back Room: In the spaces where our employees work “behind the scenes,” our store is increasing the frequency of cleaning and focusing on high-touch areas like entrances, kitchen, and stock room.
Event Notification: If we are alerted to a case of COVID-19 at our store, we will immediately work with the relevant health authorities to obtain the facts and guidance on steps to take with both customers and employees. We will undertake an additional cleaning and disinfecting protocol of the common areas of the store.
We encourage each customer during this difficult time to use both common sense and basic prevention steps to prevent illness as provided by the CDC, which includes frequent hand washing, avoiding close contact, staying home if you are sick, etc.
