You may think you're a Professor, but a good teacher would give us facts. Rarely going to Moultonboro, I have no idea what a "good restaurant in Moultonboro" means. SAMIAM, are you OK?

That’s what I was wondering. Samiam, your fans are in your corner. We hope the restaurant owners can hang on until the vaccines are available.

Thanks for the support......but it's not us.
Keeping our fingers crossed but we're open as usual and no issues with COVID.

Trying our best to keep everything clean and safe. Encouraging our staff to avoid any gatherings, be cautious and use masks and sanitizer.
Numbers are down by a lot and the wait staff is definitely hurting....less people=less tips. Many of our customers are doing take out so please consider a generous tip if you're able.

I’m sorry but you should not drop a bomb without stating facts. It leads to way too much speculation and not fair to any of the open restaurants in the area.

Subway subs sign still says closed till further notice.

The BobHouse late Friday afternoon was notified of a covid case and will be closed for a while (week or two ?). We then went to Buckeyes.

Last night we enjoyed a great prime rib at Village Kitchen. A lot of takeout was going on as well.

Default Bob House

You can read the Bob House's notice on their web site. They are approaching it in an open and professional way and I hope them a quick rebound after they open again. Good people there!

Thank you for the information. Glad to see it is only a temporary closure.

The OP bricks both in not identifying the restaurant and by being unclear about the length of closure. Not cool.

Great! So if Patrons that were at the Bob House during that time period - are they going to be smart and isolate themselves or are they going to frequent other establishments?

Yikes! I thought the closure was due to the economic strain of COVID. I did not realize there were actually cases. Sounds like they are handling it well, but a cautionary reminder for us all. Here's their statement:

**PLEASE READ**
We are sad to say but we were informed that a customer tested positive for Covid-19 on Monday and were dining with us on Saturday 11/14. We received this information yesterday afternoon and immediately told our staff who was in "close contact" to that customer. My staff then got tested and unfortunately there are now a couple positive cases that we have to report. Knowing there were multiple positive cases at our establishment we closed the doors immediately yesterday around 4pm. We have already been in contact with any customers that were in "Close Contact" to the servers that have tested positive. We have been told that "Close Contact" means within 6 ft. for a period of 10 minutes of more (does not need to be a consecutive 10 minutes). In light of this new information we will remain closed an additional week as our entire staff must quarantine regardless if they test negative for 14 days. We will re-open our doors Wednesday December 9th at 11:30am after a deep clean of the entire restaurant. We apologize for any inconvenience but our main concern is for everyone's safety

Yikes! I was there Wednesday with a bunch of lady friends, and nobody took our names/phone numbers. I can’t remember the name of the server. We’ll have to wait and see what happens. Not cheery news, for sure.

Was your server / the staff wearing a mask?

If so, you're almost certainly fine.

Otherwise ...

I believe all Restaurants in the State of New Hampshire have been taking names and phone numbers for the last week or two, so notifying affected customers may not have been a difficult task.

Let's hope they get everything cleaned up and are able to successfully open up again in a few weeks!

I want to thank them for doing the right thing under these no so ideal circumstances and wish them the best!

You might be almost 100% re taking names and phone numbers, but nobody did that at the Bobhouse last Wednesday at lunchtime. I know that because I was there...6 of us. Now we can wait and see what transpires.

Are you a regular "where everybody knows your name"? Or did one of the others in your party of 6 give name and contact info?

No, we’re not regular customers, so they don’t know us. They should have taken our information. There was only one other occupied table....maybe that’s why..... but not a good excuse.

I have heard that some New Hampshire Restaurants have asked their customers to write their name and phone numbers on the paper bill invoice at the end of the meal. I have no idea if the Bob House handles name tracking using that method or not. I personally have not seen any restaurant using that method of tracking yet.

I was at a Restaurant near Concord on Tuesday November 17th and they asked my name (and phone number) and wrote it into a notebook prior to placing the food order. I was with another person at the time and they said as long as they had at least one name and number per table setting then they were fine.

One might expect that the Moultonborough Emergency Management Director and/or the local Moultonborough Health Agent should periodically visit all restaurants or food service businesses with eat in options to ensure compliance with the Governors actions and report back to the BOS. It would be a good test of the system.

Last week the town folks said at a BOS meeting only 2 active cases of COVID with none in the schools while the Laconia Sun had 11....but nobody suggested a reconciliation. And schools are now on remote because of increased local spread. Hmmmmmmm........!

All towns should be doing this to give the dining public confidence in the system.

Mandate for restaurants to collect name and phone numbers of guests was rescinded due to an overwhelming amount of inaccurate/fake data collected. It turned out to be a tremendous waste of time because the public was not willing to share personal information. We are still encouraging our guests to write their phone number on the back of the credit card slip if they have concerns and would like to be notified in the event of an incident. Let’s hope we never have to call.

I understand the privacy issue but if you make a reservation or go on a wait list, especially one that texts you like they have at t bones you give your name and number anyway. Additionally if you order take out or delivery don’t you also give your name number and address. Ugh.

The public is a fickle mammal. If it is required of them to share accurate information in order to get what they want, they will do so. If on the other hand they get what they want and do not have to share, they won’t.

Back in September we dined at a restaurant in Acadia national Park. They asked us for name and number on the way in as walkins. I learned later that a member of the other couple we were dining with provided them with fake info. They were fed up with political texts.

She said that no one took their contact info, so obviously not all restaurants are following the guidelines established by the state. Should restaurants be fined for not following the guidelines? This is a classic example of being forced to sit boy-girl-boy-girl at lunch in the junior high cafeteria because some students can’t behave. I realize some people hate regulations, but sometimes they’re imposed because a few don’t behave. Who do you blame...the scofflaws or the regulators?

So perhaps a simple check of the phone number provided before service needs to happen. If the phone number doesn’t come back to someone in the party, no service.

That’s a great idea! It’s doubtful that anyone would take the time to implement it during a bustling mealtime, but that would keep people honest. Simple but smart.

At this time of year, is anything really bustling there? Perhaps if a hefty fine were in their wheelhouse, they would take the time. I am not a huge advocate of fining businesses, but these are different times, and everyone, individuals and businesses, need to behave like they’re responsible parts of a larger community.

So, if a married couple, that only has a landline phone at their home, presuming they have a phone (a law?), goes to a restaurant, and someone calls that phone number, and no answer, no service?

They probably have an ID on them with an address. Now what?

Maybe this is a solution.

New Hampshire Privacy: What you need to know
There are four generally recognized invasion of privacy claims: (1) intrusion upon the plaintiff's physical and mental solitude or seclusion; (2) public disclosure of private facts; (3) appropriation, for the defendant's benefit or advantage, of the plaintiff's name or likeness; and (4) publicity that places the plaintiff in a false light in the public eye. New Hampshire recognizes the first three of these claims but has not yet recognized false-light invasion of privacy (Thomas v. Telegraph Publishing Co., 859 A.2d 1166 (N.H. 2004)).

I realize some people hate regulations, but sometimes they’re imposed because a few don’t behave. Who do you blame...the scofflaws or the regulators?

Your concern is definitely in the right place.
You must know that no matter what you post, the odds are good someone will nit-pick for an opposing viewpoint.

No need to respond.

New Hampshire
"Emergency Order 74 - An order requiring persons to wear masks or cloth face coverings when in public spaces without physical distancing"

"NOW, THEREFORE, pursuant to Section 18 of Executive Order 2020-04 as extended by Executive Orders 2020-05, 2020-08, 2020-09, 2020-10, 2020-14, 2020-15, 2020-16, 2020-17, 2020-18, 2020-20, and 2020-21 it is hereby ordered, effective immediately, that:

5. This Order shall not apply to the following:

c) Any person consuming food or drink or sitting at a restaurant or table to eat or drink;

7. The provisions of this Order shall remain in effect through January 15, 2021. Given under my hand and seal at the Executive Chambers in Concord, this 19th day of November, in the year of Our Lord, two thousand and twenty, and the independence of the United States of America, two hundred and forty-four."

Gov. Sununu


Why not cover-up while eating ... like in California?

October 6, 2020 CBS News
"The California governor's office put out a tweet on Saturday advising that restaurant-goers keep their masks on while dining. "Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend?" the tweet reads. "Don't forget to keep your mask on in between bites. Do your part to keep those around you healthy."

Who says the country hasn't gone nuts!

Default They got a little sloppy

Went to the Bob House in late October and it was noticeably sloppy with requiring patrons to wear masks, folks walking in and moving about uncovered. The staff was compliant.
We decided not to return . Which is unfortunate as this is one of our favorite spots.
Time to get with the program or face bad outcomes.

The wife and I have been going to the BobHouse every Friday evening for a couple of years. Yes ... just about every Friday evening. We also did take-out when that was the only alternative . From our purview, that establishment has always complied with the emergency orders. Masks are required to get in, even for take-out.

While dining inside, we have witnessed patrons going to the rest rooms without a mask. However, they were still compliant with the six foot distancing "rules" ... without a mask. CDC: "In every location, all employees need to either maintain at least 6 feet of distance from other people at all times, or wear a mask."

Patrons also comply. We book a reservation every Friday morning, by landline phone (Spectrum broadband cable) and still, are requested to fill out a slip of paper with name and number, at the restaurant. Patrons are not scarce, and their business is a very reputable. We also frequent other local (for us) restaurants, Buckeyes, Village Kitchen, Center Harbor diner, Canoe, (Gusto soon), and others and the BobHouse has been more stringent in compliance.

As soon as they re-open, they will do fine, as well as can be expected with covid and the ramifications.

This is important. I wish the Bob House nothing but health and success, but we've stopped going to two of our favorite Mass places because they were too loose on COVID, even for takeout.

I hope Bob House will reopen soon and show their (newfound?) strictness on safety

As a host, server, or bartender in a restaurant the mission is to accommodate and encourage nonconfrontational comfortable experiences. I attempted your suggestion with a party of eight who showed up not wearing masks.

Speaking of restaurant rest rooms; any restaurant (or pubic) rest room could be a source of Covid so it is important to wear a mask into any rest room (other than your own home).

Studies have shown that if anyone has Covid it then transfers to urine or feces and gets into the air. Municipalities using sewer systems know when their particular area has a Covid problem just by a study of their waste water facilities showing elevated Covid rates.

I refer you to the old thread where there were tons of complaints about people using their cell phone in the dining room. And how many people don't answer if it is not a recognized number? If I were making call backs, I would not be using the primary restaurant number that should be kept open for new reservations.

Really simple confirm the number by calling the phone number while they are standing in front of you before they have been seated in the dining area
