Kudos to Quiznos during flu outbreak

In this particularly vulnerable time with recent outbreaks of H1N1 and H5N1 and their resulting consequences, good sanitary practices cannot be overstated.

In this particularly vulnerable time with recent outbreaks of H1N1 and H5N1 and their resulting consequences, good sanitary practices cannot be overstated.

How refreshing it was to walk into a local Quiznos Restaurant at 5250 22nd St. (Gaetz Avenue Crossing) one day last week to be served by staff involved in the food preparation who were all adorned with hair nets and donned with gloves.

At the till was a young woman not wearing gloves; however, she did not handle any food. What’s more, she still went over to the sink and washed her hands after handling my money before she served the next paying customer.

It was very encouraging to see this local restaurant going above and beyond provisions in the Public Health Act Food Regulation and they have my appreciation and respect.

It would be my hope that other food service providers, such as Westerner Park, would follow their sterling example.
