Coronavirus: How this UAE-based restaurant owner is staying in business the hygienic way
She also ensures that her staff wear face masks and gloves at all times and maintain good hand hygiene.
A restaurant owner in Abu Dhabi believes that maintaining hygiene and ensuring safety measures are a prerequisite to staying in business. Buaban C. Tucker, a Thai businesswoman, has secured a clean villa compound for her staff and has increased the frequency of the daily trips to transport them to the eatery so as to comply with the van occupancy guidelines.
She also ensures that her staff wear face masks and gloves at all times and maintain good hand hygiene. "We check the temperature of employees every three hours and carry out Covid-19 tests every 14 days. For the dining facility, we keep tables 2.5 metres apart. The restaurant is sanitised thoroughly (twice a day) - once before opening and once after closing." Tucker, who is also a chef at her Desert Lotus restaurant in Abu Dhabi, gives a complimentary water-proof mask to all her customers. "Customers enter through the main door, where their temperature is checked. They exit through an alternative door."
The businesswomen did not sack any of her employees when the pandemic hit and affected restaurants across the country. Additionally, she helped out Thai expats who were laid off at other businesses. "In April, we distributed food packs, essentials, face masks and face protective shields."
