Eat out (but only if you can)
Feeling unwell? Stay home and keep healthy. Feeling fine? Let's try to live life as normally as possible (i.e. stop panic buying!). Francesca Scarpa from the Da Paolo Group sums it up best: "Dine out, but of course, always be socially responsible! As restaurant operators, we remain vigilant and continue to ensure that our venues are safe and clean."
Most restaurants and food operators have stepped up cleaning measures. At Picnic Food Park, extra preventive steps have been put in place, including disinfecting the dining and play area at least twice a day and wiping tables down with disinfectant after every group of guests. “Where possible, we also try to seat customers at least one table apart,“ shares the restaurant’s founder Cheng Hsin Yao.
Others, like Shake Shack, have set up temperature-taking stations at the entrance of the restaurant, while venues like Le Shrimp Ramen, are providing hand sanitiser and anti-bacterial wipes, free of charge, to help you enjoy a meal in peace. As a diner, remember to do your part:
– Wash your hands before and after meals
– Head out only if you’re feeling well
– Refrain from sharing the same utensils or drinking from the same cup as your dining companions
– Avoid leaving your used tissues for the waitstaff to clear
