Mask of Vax: Bars and Restaurants Implement New Policies in Response to Mandate

Mask of Vax: Bars and Restaurants Implement New Policies in Response to Mandate

When health officials announced on Nov. 23 that masks would again be mandated for indoor public spaces in Adams, Arapahoe, Denver and Jefferson counties, less than 24 hours later (Boulder County had already passed the rule), bar and restaurant owners and operators in the metro area began a familiar process: scrambling to implement new policies with almost no notice.

The Public Health Ordinance, currently in effect through January 3, 2022, in Denver County, requires masks for all individuals two years and older in all indoor public areas. For restaurants and bars, that means a return to the need to enforce face-covering rules for customers entering and moving around establishments, although masks can be removed while customers eat and drink.

This time, however, there is an alternative option: mandatory vaccinations.

Restaurants and bars in Denver have been slow to adjust vaccine mandates, with a few notable exceptions. Bar Max at 2412 East Colfax Avenue became the first hospitality business in the state to do so in April, a move that caused a stir online. A week after Denver reached its 70 percent vaccination rate in early July, Bar Max stopped requiring proof of inoculation, but as COVID cases increased, owner Marshall Smith reimplemented the requirement on July 31. In the spring, To the Wind at 3333 East Colfax Avenue began demanding proof of vaccine on Wednesday night at the request of some of its guests.

Talks about possible government masks and vaccine mandates for bars and restaurants rose in August and in response FoodDenver, the local nonprofit for independent restaurants, sent a survey to its more than 400 members. “The majority sentiment we have gotten from this survey is that, if this step is needed in the grand plan to contain and get through the pandemic, the government will support it so restaurants feel comfortable dealing with it.” to their operations,” Executive Director Katie Laz said at the time.

Shortly after the EatDenver survey went out, Bonanno concepts — including Mizuna, Luca, Osteria Marco, Green Russell, Russell’s Smokehouse, Vesper Lounge, Lou’s Food Bar, Salt & Grinder, the Milk Market food hall and the recently reopened French 75 — became the first restaurant group in Denver to announce a vaccine requirements policy, that it rolled out in all its locations on September 30.

That move gave Frank Bonanno’s restaurants an edge over the mandatory masking alternative. Under this new option, a bar, restaurant or any other business can choose to become a fully vaccinated facility, meaning they can choose to require proof of vaccination before a customer enters an establishment instead of wearing masks. to demand. To qualify, the owner, operator, or manager must verify that at least 95 percent of the people inside — including the staff — are fully vaccinated. Bonanno already demanded that all staff be vaccinated before his group’s policies came into effect; his restaurants have now had nearly two months to smooth out and operationalize the process.

As bar and restaurant owners weigh the option of enforcing the use of masks against requiring proof of vaccine, expect more people to opt for mandatory vaccinations. Middleman, at 3401 East Colfax Avenue, has already announced that it will require a vaccination certificate to enter from Nov. 24; An Instagram post van Middleman notes, “Let’s all be safe while we’re being lit.”

Tacos Tequila Whiskey, which also has two Denver locations posted on Instagram, stating: “Starting tomorrow, under Denver guidelines, guests are required to wear a mask or show a vaccination card upon arrival (digitally accepted). This is through Jan. 3rd. Hold on tight. ”

Many other eateries, including Safta, the Bindery and Ratio Beerworks, have posted on social media about the return of mask requirements. More vaccination requirements may be rolled out soon.

In the meantime, the bottom line: If you’re going to bars and restaurants during the holiday season, make sure you’re prepared with a mask, proof of vaccination… and patience.

If you missed a Fitbit during the Black Friday sale, don’t worry – there are now some great deals to help you stay in shape during the holiday season. The Charge 5 has returned to a record-low price from $130 at Amazon, or $50 under the usual sticker. That could make it a solid bargain if you’re looking for a high-quality fitness-focused activity tracker from a well-known name. The Inspire 2 is also out up to $60 (normally $100) if you’re happy with the essentials.

The Charge 5 ticks many of the boxes if you’re determined to stay in shape. The extensive fitness and health tracking features help, especially if you get the advanced data from Fitbit Premium. For example, you can optimize your training performance and gain insight into your sleep quality. In addition to your heart rate and blood oxygen level, you can also track your stress and you get extras such as GPS, Fitbit Pay and a multi-day battery life.

There are limitations. Fitbit doesn’t share activity data with Apple Health or Google Fit, and you can’t control music from the tracker’s screen. There’s also the issue of competition: you can find some adequate alternatives from companies like Amazfit, Xiaomi and Amazon themselves that cost less (at least up front) if you can do it without some frills. Fitbit’s experience in the field matters, though, and the retail price makes the Charge 5 significantly more tempting.

Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement for Winnipeg, which could affect fans attending Sunday’s CFL West Final between the Blue Bombers and the Saskatchewan Roughriders, with rapidly deteriorating conditions expected from Sunday afternoon to Sunday evening.

Article content

A low pressure area currently developing in Montana is expected to move southeast through the Dakotas and Minnesota Saturday night and Sunday night, Environment Canada said Saturday.

In southern Manitoba, snow is expected to fall 2-4 inches Sunday and Sunday night, with total snowfall along the US border reaching 4-8 inches, triggering a blizzard warning for much of the Pembina Valley. An Arctic cold front will move south through the southern half of the province on Sunday afternoon. With this front, winds will shift from east to north around noon and increase to 40 gusts to 60 gusts at 3 p.m. and to 50 gusts to 70 gusts at 6 p.m.

Combined with the recent and falling snow, visibility is expected to decrease briefly in the late afternoon and throughout Sunday night in drifting snow to less than 800m. Afternoon temperatures are expected to drop by about 10 degrees from near -5 Celsius to nearly -15 Celsius in the late afternoon to early evening.

Collisions will make travel more difficult as blowing snow reduces visibility. Drivers are advised to be prepared to adapt their driving style to changing road conditions.
