What are Sneeze Guards?

Sneeze guards are barriers placed near food products in restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, and more. These guards are generally made from either plastic or glass. In the early 1960s, the FDA mandated that all establishments that sell food use a sneeze guard to prevent the spread of pathogens and lower the risk of customers becoming ill.

Why Do Sneeze Guards Benefit Businesses Operating in the Food Industry?

Sneeze guards are the best way to prevent the spread of airborne illness when you are working in the food and beverage industry. Airborne illnesses can spread quickly, especially during flu season. When large quantities of people gather in a confined space, illnesses like the flu can be contracted with ease. To make matters worse, too many people don't always take proper precautions when they sneeze, such as sneezing into a tissue. This allows the germs and bacteria to scatter throughout the air. Without a sneeze guard in place, those germs have a high chance of landing on the food you are about to eat. Without a sneeze guard in place to protect your food from becoming contaminated, customers can easily get sick. The last thing you want as a business owner is to lose a customer because of something that could have been easily prevented.
