From the beginning of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, our priority has been on the safety of our guests, franchisees and their restaurant crew. To help bring consistency to Baskin-Robbins locations across the country, we will now require that all guests wear a face covering while inside our restaurants beginning Wednesday, August 5.
At Baskin-Robbins, where we already require all restaurant employees to wear face masks and have updated our health and safety standards to reflect the times, we believe that wearing a mask is a simple step we can all take to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and help to keep guests and restaurant crew safe. This simple step to wear a face covering will help to provide a safe environment for guests, franchisees and their restaurant employees.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) advises that face coverings help decrease the spread of COVID-19 and recommends that people wear face coverings in public settings and continue to uphold social distancing. For anyone who is unable to wear a face covering because of a medical condition or disability, we encourage you to utilize pickup via the drive-thru or curbside*, or through our delivery partners. As more cities progress through their re-opening phases, we will continue to assess how we can continue reopening dining areas, following the guidance of public health officials across the country.
Baskin-Robbins current brand standards have not changed and we continue to assess how we are responding to the evolving situation in our country as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a 100% franchised brand, franchisees are responsible for their security practices and compliance with all local regulations.
