Dine-Out Tips Amidst COVID-19 Fears 4

We understand your concerns about visiting restaurants these days. Even with Singapore’s preparedness well-demonstrated in crises like the SARS epidemic in 2003, it’s important for Singaporeans of all walks of life to do their part in. To reassure friends, families and couples, we’ve come up with tips with regards to the current COVID-19 situation.

Visit spacious, ventilated restaurants

Increasing distances between people and keeping good ventilation could minimise the chances of infection. If you’re looking for somewhere nice for dinners, we recommend restaurants with alfresco seatings as an option. This is perfect for friends and couples who value the above, and for a nice, outdoor-sy vibe during dining.

Use serving utensils

Whether you’re having a steamboat, or sharing a dessert – it’s good to use serving utensils or avoid sharing plates with the looming virus. For those who always mix up your own utensils with the serving ones, adding a rubber band to distinguish could be helpful! If you’re uncomfortable with utensils provided by the restaurant, feel free to bring your own. Clean them immediately after a meal to avoid excessive growth of bacteria overtime. Do wash them thoroughly when you get home.

 

Wash your hands before dining

If you’re not one of the lucky ones who can get a bottle of hand sanitiser, make frequent trips to the toilet to thoroughly wash your hands with soap. If you’re wearing masks, be sure to wash your hands immediately after removing them.

 

Refrain from touching your hair during meals

Who’s guilty of fuddling with their hair during meals? Perhaps it’s not a good time to touch your hair every time you see a reflective surface. It’s better to avoid touching the hair from time to time and your face after, especially not during meal times.

 

Practise good hygiene when coughing or sneezing

Dine-Out Tips Amidst COVID-19 Fears 10

To avoid contamination of food by saliva and food residue coming from your mouth, try to swallow the food before talking and cover your mouth with the back of your hands. Use your elbows or tissues to cover the mouth during coughing or sneezing instead of the palm, sanitise the respective body part used, so germs would not land on the food from your body parts easily.
