People working in supermarkets and shops that attract more customers are at high risk of contracting Covid-19 and should take more preventive measures to avoid infection, the Deputy Director, epidemiology and disease control and Team Lead Covid-19 surveillance operations, Dr Isaac Phiri has said.

He suggested that all employees working in such shops should;

use appropriate face masks at all times

sanitise or wash their hands frequently

sanitise their working spaces at all times, including tills and tables

ensure customers maintain a distance of at least one metre as they attend to them

check temperature on everyone entering the shops

sanitise hands after handling cash

undergo frequent testing for Covid-19

be on high alert at all times and be conscious enough to reprimand customers when they don’t take preventive measures

take every opportunity to give health education in shops at all times, including audio and video messages on prevention
