Solstice Restaurant Develops Health & Safety Guidelines for Dining Based, in Part, on Reopening Survey

Solstice Restaurant Develops Health & Safety Guidelines for Dining Based, in Part, on Reopening Survey | Newtown News of Interest |

UPDATE (25 June 2020): Read "WE CARE ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY'S HEALTH" for Solstice's health & safety guidelines while dining.


Perhaps you received the same email I did from Solstice Restaurant, which is located in the Village of Newtown Shopping Center. The subject was "We Care What You Think".

"We are busy preparing the restaurant — updating our cleaning procedures, adding new service standards, upgrading our uniform specifications, and much more — to ensure the health and safety of our guests and team members once we are permitted to reopen our doors," said Solstice. "But we're not stopping there, we'd like to know what you need to feel comfortable dining in the restaurant and ordering takeout."

There was a link to an interesting online survey. Find some of the questions and my responses/comments here:

johnmacknewtown's insight:



Middletown Township also established a task force that will be charged with developing guidelines to clarify what precautions businesses should have in place to be ready to reopen as quickly as is reasonable and safe, as soon as Bucks County reaches Gov. Wolf’s yellow, and ultimately green, criteria. Read “To Reopen Local Businesses, Townships Must Develop Guidelines to Ensure Citizens are Safe. CASE STUDY: Middletown & Sesame Place”;


During the May 13, 2020, Newtown Board of Supervisors meeting via Zoom, I made a case for the Township to start thinking how it can help local businesses to re-open safely during the current and the next phases of COVID-19 restrictions. Several ideas were put forward such as rethinking the Finance Committee's purview, putting together an ad hoc business Task Force, etc. Listen to the conversation here:


This idea will be discussed in more detail at the May 18, 2020, Special Supervisor Work Session Zoom meeting.
