Waitrose becomes latest supermarket to reopen cafés for dine-in


In the wake of an easing of coronavirus lockdown measures, Waitrose café in Stroud has reopened.

Customers will face social distancing measures, including markings on the ground to maintain a two-metre gap in the queue and perspex protective screens across the counter.

Staff have also been instructed to observe strict hygiene protocols, with increased wiping down of surfaces and handwashing. In addition, foot-operated hand sanitising stations have been installed at the entrances of the cafés for customer use.

Self-service coffee machines at the supermarkets remain out of operation.

“We are delighted to reopen our café to customers in Stroud. Along with the rest of our shop, the safety of our customers and Partners remains our priority,” a Waitrose spokesperson said.
