Aramark
We are working hard to educate our customers on signage and floor directions that foster social distancing. We are sourcing items specific to office breakroom safety and hygiene including individually wrapped cups, stir sticks, sweeteners, utensils etc. We are also working with our Uniforms division so that we can become first in line when PPE becomes available. There is a nationwide shortage of hand sanitizer, wipes, gloves, etc, but since Aramark manufactures masks and we have a secure supply chain for the sanitizing supplies (as soon as they are available again!), we will be first to be able to provide these for sale.

We have lots of information here that will help the ALA members to know how to approach their return to the office.  Contact Natalie O'Meara at [email protected]
