Dine-Out Tips Amidst COVID-19 Fears

We understand your concerns about visiting restaurants these days. 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.

Avoid the peak hours

With DORSCON Orange, it’ll be good to practise social distancing. Get rewarded with a relaxing dining experience by dining at off-peak hours with less human contact required through sharing and waiting for tables. Skipping seats could even be an option if there are plenty of rooms. With us, you can possibly score a better discounted dining bill during the off-peak hours!

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 

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.

Wrap your masks with napkin when not in use

With the shortage of mask. a lot of us choose to reuse their masks after dining. To ensure your masks don’t get dirty, ask for a napkin so you can wrap your mask while you dine. It minimizes the contact of your hands with the inside-out of the mask and reduces risk of contamination on the inner side of the mask.

Use or bring your own bag hooks

Check under the dining table if there are bag hooks placed to hand your bags. Better yet, bring your own bag hook to avoid putting your bag on the floor or on the seat to lessen the chance surface contact. Make sure to sanitize your bag handle before leaving the restaurant.

Sanitize the table before sitting down

It doesn’t hurt at this point to be extra cautious on where you place your hands or arm. Sanitize your table before you start dining by spraying it with alcohol and wiping it with tissue or wet wipes. Make sure to properly dispose used tissues or wipes.
