With Covid impacting staffing and other aspects of retail

Here’s our approach to mitigating to Covid challenge in our shops:

  • Screens at the counter. We have retained these as they offer protection for us and customers. There is zero customer push-back.
  • Masks. We urge team members to wear masks when working.
  • Sanitiser. Remains freely available in-store.
  • Cleaning. Remains at peak Covid levels. All common touchpoint are cleaned on a regular cycle.
  • Vaccination. All team members are asked to get vaccination boosters as soon as they are eligible.

This pandemic has a ways to go yet. The reported infection rate is high, meaning the real rate is much higher. Worse, the death rate is tragic.
