List Provides Potential Patrons With Vital Information About Restaurant’s Safety Practices

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — We continue to receive photos and videos of area restaurants not complying with CDC guidelines — including servers not wearing face coverings. The tips are coming in from readers who have dined — or witnessed dining — at restaurants in Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach.

BocaNewsNow.com is compiling a list of restaurants where servers, wait staff and other employees are seen not wearing facial coverings, as well as restaurants where tables are closer than six feet apart. The list will be constantly updated, but we need your photos and videos.


An employee taking a break for a few moments and removing their facial covering — away from customers — is not what most would consider to be a violation.


An employee taking a break for a few moments and removing their facial covering — away from customers — is not what most would consider to be a violation. However, a staff member blatantly not wearing a facial covering while interacting with customers is a potential health and safety issue.


Management will be given the opportunity to respond before a restaurant is added to our list.

The list is a public service so potential customers can decide before traveling to a restaurant if they will feel safe eating in the establishment. We will also cross check reported concerns with the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s public restaurant health database.


If you see waitstaff, kitchen workers, host personnel or others in area restaurants not wearing face coverings, take photos or videos and send them to us at news(at)bocanewsnow.com. Please include the restaurant name, the time the image was captured, and whether or not you discussed the apparent CDC guideline violation with management at the restaurant.
