Following President Akufo-Addo’s announcement on Sunday, May 31, 2020, easing the restriction on social gathering, some eateries and food joints that have resumed operations have put in place strict measures to ensure the safety of workers and customers as far as the COVID-19 pandemic is concerned.

A tour by ABC News to some eateries and food joints in Accra on Monday to find out how they are coping with the directive to ensure safety revealed that owners of these joints have adopted measures aimed at curbing the spread of the virus as envisioned by the president in his address.

The team observed that compulsory handwashing was strictly adhered to at all the food joints visited. Moreover, many customers were seen in their face mask although there were a few recalcitrant ones.

It was also observed that to ensure the social distancing protocol, these eateries have also reduced their seating capacities allowing just a few patrons to converge at the joints at each particular time.

In an interaction with Madam Comfort Klutse, the owner of ‘Don’t Mind Your Wife Chop Bar’ at Kaneshie, she narrated that her establishment is following all the safety measures as announced to the letter.

“They say we must provide running water with soap for customers to wash their hands including alcohol-based hand sanitizer. I have provided all that. I used to set 8 tables and chairs for customers to sit but I have reduced them to only 3 to ensure social distancing,” Mad. Klutse said.

“The arrangement has changed. Formerly we used to have all these tables and chairs filling these spaces and all that. The customers feel comfortable coming here,” an old customer of the eating joint told ABC News.

At Glorious Kitchen, a food joint in Bubuashie, the owner, Madam Comfort, outlined to the team some of the measures she has implemented to ensure the safety of her workers and customers. She, however, indicated that the pandemic has taken a negative toll on sales since the number of customers has significantly reduced.

A customer at the premise narrated how satisfied he is with the arrangements put in place by the management of the food joint.

“They are following the president’s directive of handwashing, the social distancing, and the one-metre protocol. So I think it is okay,” he said.
