Tesco Hungary Limits Number Of Customers In Shops For Safety
As a new element in protecting its employees and clients during the Coronavirus epidemic, Tesco is placing limits on the number of customers who may enter its shops in Hungary from today, the subsidiary of the UK retail chain announced.

Those who have to wait must queue outside the shops while keeping a safe distance from one another.

The number of customers admitted at any one time varies according to the size of the shop.

Tesco staff will control the number of shop visitors with the help of a mobile phone app. They will also check to make sure that customers who enter between 9 a.m. and noon are over 65 as mandated by the government.
