As the Vietnamese government has ordered nationwide social distancing due to the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) epidemic, a seafood restaurant in HCM City has taken all possible measures to adapt to the new situation.

The restaurant, located in Tan Binh District, no longer serves sit-down diners owing to the new regulation requiring it to only offer takeout and delivery.

So it has transformed into a fresh seafood store amid the physical distancing measure to stall the virus spread.

Upon arriving at the venue, customers are guided by security guards through a disinfection chamber and to a special area where they place their orders.

Large tables have been set up to make sure buyers stand two meters, the advised distance, away from each other.

Multiple chairs are also prepared for people to rest while waiting to take their food, and there is a safe distance between these seats.

All transactions are made via a racket with a long handle.

Everyone at the store is required to keep their face masks on all the time.

The operation of the fresh seafood store has been examined and approved by local authorities.

“I usually buy my groceries online due to the epidemic. But when it comes to seafood, I have to make a direct purchase to ensure freshness and quality,” said Tram Anh, a resident in Tan Phu District.

“I feel really safe thanks to the professional operation of this store.”
