Covid-19 Update 2020
To our communities,
All COBS Bread bakeries continue to follow provincial and federal health guidelines throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to ensure we are providing the most sanitary and safe environment, our bakeries are doing the following:
Social Distancing: Social distancing is encouraged, but not required.
Masks: Masks are optional for both customers and bakery staff.
Protective Counter Top Plastic Shields: All of our bakeries have plexi shields at the point of sale.
Pre-Slicing and Pre-Packing Bread: We still bake fresh every day, but most of our bakeries are pre-slicing and pre-packing bread to help improve the speed of service in our bakeries.
Staff Health: We are encouraging our employees to closely monitor their health and well-being and to stay home if they, or someone they have been in contact with, are feeling unwell.
We are working closely with our suppliers to ensure we can continue to provide you with the products you love, and we are staying informed and taking direction from the federal and provincial government.
Why don’t your bakery staff wear gloves?
COBS Bread team members use disposable pick-up-tissue for each customer. This ensures that the product remains untouched, and that staff can easily wash their hands as often as possible.
Your staff are within 2m of the bread. Is this safe?
According to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, “There is no evidence to suggest that food is a likely source or route of transmission of the virus. At this time, there have been no reported cases of food or food packaging being associated with the transmission of COVID-19.”
Our COBS Bread Task Force is meeting three times per week, and our bakeries will remain open to serve your needs. We are committed to keeping the highest standard of customer service, and providing you with the freshest baked bread and treats you have come to expect from COBS Bread.
We are thankful for your understanding and continued support.
