At the end of December 2019, Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was first identified in the Wuhan City of China, which is characterized by fast human-to-human transmission, medical staff infection, and community transmission has since spread globally, with the number of infected people exceeded 5 million. Since then many countries all over the world announced population lockdowns, people were forced to be distanced socially for the sake of their own and their loved ones’ health and safety. The global economy was shaken, and it is trying to get back on its feet. More and more people are returning to their daily routines and businesses are hoping to be able to get back to normal. The recent statistics though show otherwise, especially for entertainment centers, restaurants, cafes, etc. Why is that?
After the virus outbreak and everything that people had to go through, they are very cautious about the places they spend their time at and where they hang out. Restaurants and cafes took a huge hit and they don’t seem like they have recovered yet, even though people are getting back to their normal routines. The reason for this is that people must feel safe now before they go anywhere. They don’t want to be somewhere where there is a possibility that they risking their health. But how can businesses give a sense of relief to people and let them pass their doors concern free?
The answer to the above is very simple, take the necessary precautions that people want to see. They want to see that the place they step inside has the absolute minimal chance of being infected, how do you achieve that? By taking safety measures like having hand gel at the entry, the government regulations are being followed and distances are kept, the staff is wearing masks and gloves and there are temperature monitoring systems, like face recognition thermometers that check the body temperature and making sure that no-one that has entered has a fever. These are some things that will make everyone feel much safer and make them go inside somewhere without being afraid.
The global COVID-19 situation changed the global status of everyone forever because it made people realize how easy are things to get out of control and made them more cautious since the coronavirus is only one of the viruses and deceases out there. Businesses must win back the world’s trust and they have to do it by showing that they are caring about their customers’ safety and well being by acting accordingly.
