With COVID-19 cases surging under the delta variant, resulting in the reinstatement of mandates and regulations in areas with substantial or high transmission rates, it’s more important than ever for restaurants to take measures to keep their staff and diners safe.
One local hospitality group is making it easy for its employees to get vaccinated by setting up a pop-up vaccination clinic that will also be open to the public. On Tuesday, August 10, in partnership with the City of San Diego, Good Time Design (GTD) will turn The Presley in Liberty Station into a vaccination station. From 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., it’ll be reserved for the staff from its six San Diego area properties including Moonshine Beach, Moonshine Flats, and The Blind Burro, who will be compensated for their time. And from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, the clinic will welcome family members of GTD employees as well as any local hospitality, restaurant, and bar industry workers. The vaccination is free and only requires an I.D. to participate.
Though Good Time Design isn’t requiring that all of its employees be vaccinated, the group hopes that by offering compensation and an efficient option, it’ll be able to encourage those who are on the fence to move forward with the vaccination process.
