Taco Bell has said that it is implementing temperature checks and contactless payments among other measures at its US restaurants over the next month as it looks to address safety concerns among workers labouring through the coronavirus crisis.
The company said that it will require all employees in US restaurants to wear gloves and masks or coverings mandated by local authorities.
The virus outbreak in the United States is decimating the restaurant industry as scared customers cook at home instead of eating out and governments force restaurants to shut dining rooms and switch to drive-through, delivery and take-out only.
Temperature Checks At Other Restaurant Firms
Last month, Restaurant Brands said it that was deploying 15,000 infrared thermometers at Burger King, Tim Hortons and Popeye outlets, while Starbucks has said that its delivery staff have their temperature taken daily, and McDonald's Corp has rolled out daily wellness checks for employees and said that it will make thermometers available to all restaurants.
