COVID-19: Chili’s Commitment Efforts Today and Always

We are staying close to the official guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and all state and local guidelines and mandates. This page will answer questions you may have about dining with Chili's or picking up To-Go orders during this time.

What We're Doing For Our Guests

What measures have you taken to ensure the safety of your Guests?

Following guidance from the CDC, we’re continuing with our enhanced cleaning and disinfecting procedures for high-trafficked areas, such as surfaces and equipment, tables, table-top devices and more.

You can open your trunk when your order comes out and our Team Members will place your Chili's food directly in your trunk.

What We're Doing for Our Team Members

What steps are you taking to make sure Team Members have a safe work environment?

We believe the safest work environment is a vaccinated work environment and are strongly encouraging all of our Team Members to get vaccinated. Guest and Team Member safety all focuses around these key areas:

  • Washing our hands for a minimum of 20 seconds every 30 minutes and after touch points such as handling payment.
  • Using disinfectant shown to be effective against COVID-19.
  • Using the installed disinfecting stations at every entry point of the restaurant.
  • Increasing the amount of wellness checks with each other.

We are continuing to closely follow CDC recommendations and partner with a leading corporate wellness company to ensure the health and safety of our Team Members. Employees who are exposed, test positive or develop symptoms of COVID-19 are immediately excluded from our restaurants until it is safe for them to return.


Are masks required for Team Members?

Based on the most recent CDC mask guidelines, Chili’s Team Members no longer have to wear a mask at work if they’ve been fully vaccinated.
