The Coronavirus pandemic is spreading throughout the world and South Africa was not spared. One retail store took the bull by the horns and decided to act decisively.
Gustie De Ponte from Roots Butchery in Emba Mall, eMbalenhle spoke to The Bulletin regarding their plans to help stop the spread of the disease.
All staff were called and precautionary measures were explained to the staff. The store employs over 100 workers. All staff are now to work with gloves and facemasks. This is in addition to the current protective and hygienic attire that they are currently working with.
“We want to make people aware of the virus,” said Gustie, “we also want to create a safe environment for the people to do their shopping.”
Cllr Ace Vilakazi also attended the talk with the staff and commended Roots Butchery on the positive steps that they have taken in this regard. “It is good to see that a big business such as Roots Butchery is taking steps to ensure a safe environment for their shoppers,” said Ace.
Thank you Roots Butchery for the positive steps taken.
