QUESTIONS OF THE DAY
That’s right…THE most important questions of the day — all day, every day!!
It is CRITICAL that you complete the COVID Screening every day before you start your shift. Be sure to answer each question honestly so that you and your fellow coworkers can stay safe.
FEELING A LITTLE DIFFERENT?
“Did I eat something bad to upset my stomach?”
“Are my allergies acting up?”
Be aware of COVID symptoms. These common symptoms often start very mild and may have you wondering if you’re being paranoid or actually feeling sick.
Read on to learn about what you may find yourself thinking...
SAFETY TRAINING & A RAFFLE
January Safety Training is all about La Tapatia’s COVID prevention plan.
Get caught doing something right! If your Manager catches you following our safety guidelines, you will be entered into a raffle. What can you win??? Gift cards to places you’ll love! All you have to do is follow the safety rules of La Tapatia and your Manager will enter you to win. Raffle will take place on January 29th.
“I have a tiny cough every few hours, but it doesn’t sound bad. Probably just a little dust.”
“My throat feels a little itchy. But not really.”
“My back is sore…I must’ve slept wrong.”
“Hmm…my head kind of hurts. Oh well, I always get headaches.”
“A person I live with has some symptoms…but I feel fine.”
All of these thoughts may be the very first sign of becoming ill. STAY HOME until you know you’re well.

Great news for high risk employees
La Tapatia has the opportunity to be a “preferred client.” We were grateful to be chosen by our Blue Shield of California Insurance as one of the employers who will be able to offer the COVID vaccine to our employees who are age 65 and over, with pre-existing conditions AND those employees who are age 75 and over just based on their age. The Moderna COVID vaccine is considered 94% effective. Due to the high rate of reinfection, a COVID vaccine can be critical to remaining healthy.

new update to assigned restrooms & lunchrooms
In an effort to maintain the maximum amount of safety, we must keep our departments as separate as possible. There will be a scheduled 30 min break between shifts so that you don't have to come in contact with others from a different department. During this time we will disinfect common touch surfaces and areas. In addition, each department will now use ONLY their assigned bathroom and lunchroom. The assignments are as follows:
Corn=Right hand side in QC/Restroom Hallway
Flour=Left hand side in QC/Restroom Hallway
QC (Tortilla)=Will use the restroom of the department they are testing.
Warehouse=Right hand side warehouse restroom near chemical room
Sanitation (Night) LT Drivers (Day)=Left hand side warehouse restroom near chemical room
Maintenance=Upstairs Chip office restroom
Security/Chip QC=Chip restroom at far end of hallway
Chip Production=First chip bathroom
Office/Store=Office bathrooms (In the event of an out of order bathroom elsewhere in the facility, one of these may be used as a temporary restroom.)
What is a 401K anyway?? Good question. It’s just a fancy way of saying you’re going to start saving for retirement. Think you’re too young to consider this? Think again. The younger you start, the more money you’ll save. It works a little like this.
Step 1: You choose how much you want to save.
Step 2: That amount is deducted from your paycheck each pay period (pre-tax).
Step 3: La Tapatia also sets aside a little for you as well.
Step 4: Some really smart money people choose what stocks to invest your money in.
Step 5: Your savings earns money each year & BOOM…you’ve got a nice cushion when you retire.
You have to be 21 years or older and have worked at La Tapatia for 3 months in order to enroll. If you’re interested or just need more info, visit our ladies in HR (they’re really smart & love to help!).
