CONCORD, NH — Restaurants and educators in New Hampshire have teamed up to create a free, online education initiative for employees and businesses in the hospitality sector to be trained on the latest coronavirus safety protocols for eateries, bars, bakeries, and other establishments.
The "NH Promise" program is a two-hour course that will educate staffers on the latest state and federal safety standards when addressing coronavirus guidelines for restaurants and bars.
The program was developed by educators at Lakes Region, Nashua, and White Mountains community colleges in an effort to help hospitality workers around the state, according to Larissa Baía, the president of Lakes Region Community College. After creating the curriculum, educators pitched the idea to the New Hampshire Lodging and Restaurant Association as a way of improving safety standards while also rebuilding consumer confidence about concerns with indoor dining. The Common Man restaurant chain agreed to be the first test subject of the initiative and now, all involved are promoting it to other employees and establishments in the state.
