Additional safety measures have been made public by the company and will take the action on Monday.
Starbucks is frequented by people who drink coffee due to a variety of reasons. The people who drink their drinks are enthralled (particularly those available on the hidden menu) however, the variety of mugs also attracts a lot of attention particularly when it gives you a discount of 10 cents. But, you won’t more be able to refill the cup that you reuse at Starbucks in the coming days.
Concerns regarding COVID-19 have been addressed by a press announcement posted on Starbucks’ website. “As a global company, we’ve been closely following the changing circumstances of COVID-19, as well as the rest of the globe,” states Rossann Williams, Starbucks’ chief executive officer of its company-operated operations within Canada and the United States, and Canada. “Our emphasis remains on two essential priorities: caring for our partners and customers’ health and well-being, and providing constructive assistance to local health professionals and government leaders as they fight to contain the infection.”
Managers from The United States and other foreign markets, as per Williams who is a consultant, are taking lessons about their Chinese counterparts to implement several prevention measures, which include ones that directly harm customers. The first is that Starbucks will increase sanitation and cleanliness in all its locations. Also, all locations will cease using cup reusable, which includes “for here” mugs, which can be used and returned at the time of purchase. However, you can still get the discount of 10 cents if you use your own mug and request the “for here” cup during the change in policy.
Alongside these modifications, the company also has also informed employees of the best ways to report anyone who is sick with the coronavirus. Starbucks has also suspended flights for business travel until March 21st and has moved major events to Canada and the United States and Canada.
Starbucks announced the news online and the restrictions have been put into force. A sign posted on the front of a café situated in Des Moines, Iowa, was noticed by a BHG.com editor. “We are temporarily halting the usage of reusable cups in the interest of our consumers and partners,” the message reads. It’s unclear for how the ban on reusable cups will remain in place. “We’ll continue to work closely with our partners and local health officials, and we’re hopeful that this will be a one-time occurrence.”
The Seattle-based company is renowned for its commitment to environmental sustainability. This includes the switch from single-use to reusable packaging. So it was likely not an easy choice. The new guidelines will only be in force for a limited period of time.
