The Ivy Collection has announced the reopening of the first of its restaurants within the group, The Ivy Chelsea Garden, on 4 July, on the basis that the government lifts its existing restrictions on its two-metre social distancing guidelines.
The restaurant said whilst service “remains a priority”, it will be implementing the “highest standards” of health and safety, ensuring both guests and employees will be dining and working in confidence and in a safe environment.
Measures will include thermal cameras for temperature checks, the use of tracking software for all employees logging daily temperature readings over a seven day rolling period, and professional deep cleaning and disinfecting on a daily basis.
Air filtration units have also been fitted (99% effective in killing the MRSA and H1N1 viruses, which are part of the same RNA Coronavirus family) and dedicated members of staff have been appointed to ensure that health and safety is at its highest standard on an on-going basis.
The restaurant said its concern is not only to give guests and staff the most positive of experiences, but also to ensure that health and safety is “paramount”.
Pedro Carvalho, general manager of The Ivy Chelsea Gardens said: “I myself and all of the staff are extremely excited to be opening once again on Saturday, 4 July. We can’t wait to welcome back our regular guests and members of the community who we have greatly missed over the last few months.
“The team are also looking forward to being united again on the restaurant floor and in the kitchen, whilst maintaining a safe distance at all times.”
