Oregon Rescinds Regulation To Make Restaurant Workers Wear Gloves

The gloves are off – once again – at Oregon restaurants.  Regulators had passed a law that would require all food service employees to wear gloves when preparing a meal.  Now, following heavy protests from employees and customers alike, they’ve rescinded the ruling.

At the heart of the regulation was safety.  Legislators ruled that the gloves helped prevent the spread of disease.  They do;  But, chefs also say that the gloves prevent them from doing their job properly.  There’s an old adage in the kitchen that bare hands are the chefs’ best tool.

With the law now off the books, restaurant cooks are back to abiding by the “double-hand-washing” rule which they were bound to before.
