Tuesday’s Cigar Tips: Cigars and Coronavirus, What should I do?

No comments

We would like to state that we know the recent outbreak of the coronavirus is very scary and this pandemic is causing many issues and interfering in our normal daily lives and routines with many closings, cancellations, suspensions, and regulations. It’s overwhelming and frightening and at the forefront of our lives right now.

We’re all taking measures to remain healthy and safe. It’s very necessary to remain vigilant with being precautious, if you’re feeling sick, please seek medical attention and remain home. The properly washing of hands and the use of sanitizer is a very crucial step and essential part to reduce your chances of getting infected or contaminated.

Make sure that your favorite cigar lounges and locations are properly and thoroughly cleaning their facilities and following guidance from federal, state and local agencies, including the CDC and other health organizations.

Many cigar lounges have reduced their locations to only pick-up shopping for cigars and not opening the lounge area. Also, many cigar manufacturers and factories have already started closing such as Rocky Patel, who makes cigars in Honduras with the Plasencia family, confirmed that the factories in Honduras were shut down. Representatives for Davidoff, which makes Camacho and Baccarat in Honduras, as well as Scandinavian Tobacco Group, parent of General Cigar Co., also confirmed their operations were shut down due to the government decree.

Here are some recommended steps cigar lounges should be taking to protect their patrons/shoppers and their valued associates:

In-Store Cleaning

  • Cleaning commonly used areas more often, including cashier stations, bar stations, credit card terminals, and any service/common use counters, and cleaning shelves when restocking products.
  • Sanitizing restrooms more frequently and restocking with supplies, including soap, paper towels, and hand sanitizer.
  • Adding extra hand sanitizer at different locations about your facility.
  • Wiping down equipment.
  • Following best practices for safety according to the CDC.

For Associates

  • Encouraging your associates to closely monitor their health and well-being.
  • Providing hand sanitizer and tissues in necessary breakrooms or meeting rooms.
  • Asking your associates to stay home if they, or someone in their household, are sick.
  • Suspending business air travel for associates and recommending virtual meetings.

For Shoppers
