We will be maintaining our Kitchen Hood and HVAC system (outfitted MERV 13 filters and UV Lights) in constant operation during all hours of operation to ensure air is being cycled, filtered, and disinfected constantly.
Proof of Vaccination & Negative Test Results
The Oxalis team is fully vaccinated and required to test negative with an employer-provided rapid Covid-19 test kit prior to the first shift each week. Any employee with a positive result will quarantine for 10 days (5 additional days beyond the currently required CDC timeline) and until will not return until they have provided a negative test.

Limiting long conversations and verbal exchanges and utilizing electronic and verbal communication as much as possible.
Staggering pre-shift meetings to smaller groups to limit risk of exposure.
Cleaning, Disinfecting, and Sanitizing Processes
We have always maintained a strong attention to detail in disinfecting and sanitizing practices that have exceeded CDC guidelines, but have incorporated updated procedures to ensure the safety of our guests and our team. Our team members are trained to utilize EPA approved disinfecting and sanitizing products that kill 99.9% of germs and Coronavirus. Our practices include:
Regular disinfection of restaurant before and after service

Team Health & Wellness
In addition, we are implementing previously established practices to ensure a healthy working environment for our team, including:
