Starbucks has a plan for gradually reopening


ALBANY, N.Y. (WTEN) – Starbucks has a plan for reopening after March’s coronavirus closures.

The company is adopting a ‘monitor and adapt’ strategy to re-open certain cafes.

CEO Kevin Johnson addressed employees in an open letter.

Johnson wrote that “Every community will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and decide when to fully reopen their cafes depending on local conditions.”

Johnson said the company has developed a so-called “data-rich dashboard” that aggregates government data on confirmed cases and trends.

Currently, some U.S. locations have shifted to drive-through only.

Others offer entryway pickup, curbside delivery and at-home delivery.
