What Is the Georgia Safety Promise?

The Georgia Department of Health and the Governor’s Office created the Georgia Safety Promise to inspire businesses to practice easy but crucial precautions to minimize the spread of COVID-19. By adhering to the guidelines laid out in the campaign, restaurants like Ruth’s Chris can protect Georgians while also keeping its Alpharetta, Downtown Atlanta, Buckhead and Kennesaw, Georgia restaurants open for business.

By making the Georgia Safety Promise, the staff at Ruth’s Chris Steak House is committing to:

  • Staying six feet apart
  • Wearing masks
  • Sanitizing surfaces
  • Frequently washing hands

Social Distancing: Staying Six Feet Apart

Part of committing to the Georgia Safety Promise means committing to staying six feet apart. That goes not only for our staff, but for our customers as well.

We’ve modified our service to keep interactions between guests and team members to a minimum. Our staff will avoid handshakes and any other direct personal contact, and we request that you please do the same.

To maximize the distance between groups, we’ve also strategically removed some tables from service throughout the restaurant. This means that our dining rooms may not look full even if we are booked to current allowable capacities, and we appreciate your understanding. Since we have fewer tables available, Ruth’s Chris recommends making a reservation to guarantee a spot at your desired time.

Wearing Cloth Face Coverings

All Ruth’s Chris team members will be outfitted with masks, which they are required to wear while on the premises. Of course, our guests can’t wear a face covering while eating or drinking, but we’d appreciate it if you wore one when not doing so. Remember, wearing a mask is for your – and everyone else’s – safety.

Thoroughly and Frequently Sanitizing Surfaces

Cleanliness has always been a high priority at Ruth’s Chris, but since the Coronavirus pandemic began, we’ve amped up sanitation efforts in several ways, like cleaning high-touched surfaces even more often than normal and carefully sanitizing every table between guests. This new practice may cause minor delays in getting seated, but we hope you’ll agree that these enhanced cleanliness, health and safety protocols are worth the wait.

Frequent Hand-Washing

Just as we did before, we enforce proper hand-washing techniques among the team members at Ruth’s Chris. They will also be utilizing hand sanitizer between each guest interaction, and we politely ask that you take extra precautions, too, to help spread COVID-19, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. Before dining, we encourage everyone to take a moment to clean their hands with warm and soapy water for at least 20 seconds. Try singing “Happy Birthday” in your head twice to ensure you wash your hands for the full length of time.
