"Two joint teams, made up of representatives of the Public Health Directorate of Bistrița-Năsăud and the County Police Inspectorate of Bistrița-Năsăud, have been carrying out control actions at the main hypermarkets and supermarkets in the municipality in order to see the extent to which the recommendations to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus are being adhered to.
It has been found that all stores have dispensers with biocidal substances for hand disinfection (for both staff and customers) and specific disinfectants for surfaces. Also, all shopping carts, handles, entrances and interior surfaces are disinfected according to a well-established plan. Staff members either wear gloves or have access to hand sanitizer. All products used for hygiene purposes have been verified to be professional products. Moreover, official information about the coronaviruses is visible everywhere.
The representatives of the big stores showed great awareness with the issue, requesting additional recommendations from specialists within the Public Health Directorate.
The only aspect that needs to be improved in the present context would be the observance of a certain distance between customers inside the stores. The security staff gives warnings in this regard, but not everyone respects them. Such checks will be intensified in the coming period, especially at peak hours, to verify that the regulations regarding restricted access to shops and keeping customers' distance from the cash registers are being complied with.
In the last two weeks, the Public Health Directorate of Bistrița-Năsăud has also visited the main transport companies in the county, to ensure that the preventive measures needed during this period are being correctly enforced.”
