2. Hand sanitizer available at the entrances and all throughout the facility.
3. The plea to use a mask when visiting the facility.
4. Reducing the number of customers allowed to enter.
5. Constant disinfection of frequently used items at the facility such as the vending machines and toilets.
6. Facility employees have to take their temperature in the morning, wear masks, and frequently disinfect their hands.
7. At some facilities, customers' temperatures are taken and they are refused entry if their temperature is over 37.5 ℃ (99.5℉) or if they show mild symptoms, such as coughing.
