As per guidelines issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) of India, restaurants can open from June 8 as part of phase I of the “UnLockdown”. Unlock 1.0 is the foot in the door for restaurants to come back full-fledged. As restaurants gear up to resume operations, they will need to abide by the new regulations of the Government of India. Certain rules such as the following will become the new normal for restaurants:
Provisioning masks to customers and staff
Provisioning hand sanitizers to customers and staff
Socially distant physical seating
Cleanliness and sanitization of physical areas - tables, lavatories etc.
The Dilemma of Reusable vs. Disposable Menus
While maintaining clean physical spaces and provisioning hygiene essentials such as masks, hand sanitizers etc. can help, the idea of using reusable physical menus has become questionable lately. These menus are vectors of germs that get passed from person-to-person, making them unsafe and unhygienic. While an immediate cure may be to switch to disposable menus, doing so in the long run is not only expensive but also unscalable.
So, what can restaurants do differently to provide their customers a fully secure dining experience ? Now, more than ever, is the time that restaurants embrace Contactless Solutions.
