Please allow me to express my opinion on observations I have made pertaining to the Coronavirus and the businesses. I have noticed very long queues outside most of the popular business places. I figured the reason for that is social distancing that they are trying to promote.
I must say they are trying, but are these businesses really thinking or are they just putting measures in place that make no sort of sense, in my opinion. Let me explain what I mean when I say “make no sort of sense”. You said, you are promoting social distancing and yet you have clusters and clusters of people outside your business. Where is the social distancing? All these businesses are doing is having people wait in the sun. What is the difference if they are waiting outside the business or inside?
After you have waited in the queue for hours, as in the case with a certain business, almost pasted to each other, you sanitize your hand and then enter the building. Sanitizing and so, fair enough, but what is stopping you from contracting the virus outside in the queue while you wait and pass it to the employees or other persons in the building?
You are still wearing the same clothes that persons touched you in the line. After sanitizing you hold your clothes while waiting inside or looking around. When it is finally your turn, you hold the money which the employee collects. Not to mention you hold other items while looking for your desired item, therefore leaving the virus on the item. Tell me business owners, does that make any sort of sense to you? How is that protecting your employees or other customers?
I do give them credit for staying open and trying to stop the spread but in my opinion they are just followers and not thinkers. I expected more out of these businesses.
However, there are businesses that do put measures in place to avoid the line both inside and outside and I must commend them for that. One such business is GBTI on Regent Street. Congrats, you guys are thinkers and I hope you continue to lead. Those who have visited this branch know what I am talking about.
It would be greatly appreciated if maybe someone, who sees the logics behind this madness, enlightens me.
Hope to see an improvement in the near future.
