Letter: Use of Plastic Gloves at Food Establishments

You know those plastic gloves that food servers use?  Well we all know their sole purpose is to ensure the health of your customers, not to keep servers’ hands clean. I can’t tell you how many times servers use these gloves to handle money and touch registers before handling customers’ food. Perhaps you should assign one person to handle the money and the other(s) to handle the food? Or possibly remove the gloves when handling money and use new gloves for the next customer? The worst I’ve seen is a food server mopping with plastic gloves on and then stopping to help a customer never having changed their gloves. If you work in a food establishment, own a food establishment or simply are a customer, please make a difference and share this.
