COVID-19 policy

Dear Richard’s Customers,

Of course, we have been working hard on our list of protocols, including staff training, for everyone’s
safety. These steps include:

  • We have installed The Dust Free® Active Air system in our restaurant. The purifier's unique technologies target air quality problems at the source using environmentally-friendly oxidizers and ionization system to safely and effectively purify the air in your home. Read more about it here.

  • Testing all employee’s temperatures upon their arrival to work, sending them home if temperature is 100.4˚ or above

  • Requiring all employees to wear masks and gloves, and to adhere to hand-washing and glove-changing protocols provided by the CDC and WHO

  • Rigorous and regular sanitizing of the kitchen and dining room, with particular attention paid to high-touch areas

  • Hand sanitizer and hand wipes widely available for staff and guests

  • Proper social distancing of tables, not permitting waiting in the lobby area, and not permitting sitting or standing at the bar

  • Restricting entrance for guests through our front door only in order to maintain social distancing while seating. Outdoor seating will be available in case there is a wait

  • Flatware rolled and sealed

  • Salt and pepper and other condiments available only upon request; sanitized after each use

  • All tables, chairs, banquettes wiped down between guests

  • Certifying our vendors by requiring letters of product-handling protocols

  • Maintaining our kitchen with zero violations standards with Central District Health (license #44561)

  • Supporting the Inn at 500’s commitment to be the cleanest and safest hotel in Idaho

  • Relying on guests to self-monitor their health and to stay home if they’re ill—we’re all in this together!

Reservations can be made on OpenTable via our website Takeout can be ordered on
our website as well.

Please don’t hesitate to let us know of your questions or concerns by replying to this email. We hope to
see you soon, and we appreciate your support of our local, independently-owned restaurant!
