How one downtown Phoenix restaurant is handling its reopening amid pandemic

Restaurants around the Valley are getting ready to open back up Monday after Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey announced they can reopen but with several health precautions in place during the pandemic.

Hanny's was one of the restaurants that closed down completely.  On Sunday, FOX 10's Jennifer Martinez went inside to see exactly how they are planning on keeping people safe. 

Things will look a little different when you walk into Hanny's in downtown Phoenix once it's reopened.

The first thing you notice plexiglass to separate customers from one another. There’s a lot of signage to direct customers through the restaurant to prevent cross trafficking with others entering Hanny's.

Another noticeable change -- social distancing between tables.

Hanny's seats 400 people but now only 96 people will be allowed inside at a time. Sanitizer is also now part of the interior and masks and gloves are part of the uniform.

In order to protect yourself from a possible infection, the CDC recommends: 

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
