Lees Famous Recipe Chicken 

COVID-19 Response Plan

(Revised December 1, 2020)



The intent of this policy is to insure the health and safety of Lees Famous Recipe Chicken staff, and the public in response to the Corona Virus (Covid- 19) Pandemic. This policy was developed to support and guide staff in the prevention and spreading of the virus in our workplace. Lees Famous Recipe Chicken will not be held liable for staff or others contracting COVID-19.

All staff must comply with all applicable policies, guidelines, and protocols implemented by the Provincial Government and Lees Famous Recipe Chicken, including with respect to physical isolation protocols, infection prevention and control measures, and the use of personal protective equipment as directed by BC’s Health Minister. 

All Staff must adhere to the policy and procedures as outlined within this document. 




  1. During the Pandemic, staff can expect to receive additional supports required to do their jobs.

  2. Effectively implemented, this policy will ensure that working conditions are safe and reasonably possible.

  3. Physical distancing, wearing masks and cleaning procedures are the three primary methods Lees Famous Recipe Chicken will use to prevent the spread of Covid-19 among staff. 




The virus that cause Covid-19 spreads in several ways, including through droplets when a person coughs, sneezes or breathes heavily, and from touching contaminated surfaces and then touching your face.


Procedures to minimize the risk of infection must be taken:

  • Cashiers coming into contact with the public

  • Drive thru Cashiers coming into contact with public

  • Drive thru employees working in close proximity of one another

  • Packers working in close proximity with one another

  • Cooks working in close proximity with one another


  • Tongues 

  • Fry Timers

  • Gravy Ladles 

  • Warmers

  • Deep Fryers

  • Cleaning Supplies


  • Masks must be worn at all times in the workplace.

  • Confirmation of daily health checks and temperature checks must be done prior to starting work.

  • Lees has installed plexi-glass as a divider to separate our front-line cashiers from the customers. All employees must wash hands/ sanitize their hands after coming into contact with anything that the customers have touched for example cash debit/ credit machine. 

  • After every use of the Debit/ credit machine all front-line workers must sanitize the terminal with exception of customer using tap. 

  • To minimize the risk of workers working in close proximity to one another we have defined position for each employee to minimize risks of being in close proximity to one another, for example Famous Cook, Crispy Cook, French Fry Packer, Chicken Packer, Steam Table Packer. By breaking down the positions the only time there is an issue is during breaks so when they return to their position all position employees must sanitize all equipment, utensils and timers. 



  • Employee’s of Lees Famous Recipe Chicken that are showing symptoms of Covid 19 in the last 10 days must self isolate at home. If an employee has come into close contact with a Confirmed case of Covid 19 we ask the same.  A Covid-19 test may be requested before returning to work.

  • Lees Famous Recipe Chicken prohibits any visitors and limits vendors to limited areas in the store to reduce the risk of contamination.

  • If any employees feel ill at work, it is their responsibility to advise the supervisor/ manager on shift and arrange a ride home immediately and then refer to the symptoms of COVID- 19 policy.

  • Every employee will have their Temperatures monitored daily and if there are any signs of fever that employee will be asked to Leave.


  • Regularly clean and disinfect objects and surfaces that are frequently touched by multiple people.

  • Wash hands with soap and water frequently or use sanitizer when soap and water is not readily available.

  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, or mouth.

  • Avoid shaking hands.

  • Maintain at least 6 feet distance between yourself and others.

  • Properly dispose of tissue and other products that come into contact with bodily fluids.

  • Wear facemask when physical distancing is not possible.

  • Stay healthy and get adequate sleep, exercise and proper nutrition.




  • Lees has implemented a communication plan that helps educate our customers with signage about social
    distancing, limiting the number of customers in the store at any given time. 


  • At Lees we are constantly adapting to the post Covid-19 environment, as we adapt, we have weekly meeting with management to address any areas of concern. 

  • Lees Is still only working on a drive thru and take out model. As we adapt to a dine in service, we will evaluate the dinning room concerns. 



After evaluating all measure at Lees, we feel we are able to adapt our business model at this time to include social distancing, physical barriers, and have included new policies to reduce the risk of all staff members and customers in being at risk of being contaminated with COVID - 19
