We’re one step closer to Level 2, but it will take businesses time to work out how these new restrictions will impact them and their customers.

In the hospitality industry, restaurants could host up to 100 people, but the logistics of how that would work with social distancing was not yet clear.

The Rocks Restaurant owner Tony Chilton said customers would have to stay seated and could only be served by one person.

“It’s going to be awkward because I watch the floor like a hawk but I won’t always be able to attend to them,” he said.

And because he ran on minimum staff, if anyone was feeling slightly unwell prior to a shift, it would be difficult to find a replacement at the last minute.

“It can be very detrimental to what you’re trying to do,” he said.

Venom Hair Salon owner Adrian Barclay said they were ready to go but there were mixed messages from the government about whether staff would have to wear masks.

“I’m still figuring it out now and letting it all simmer, and just making sure that we are going to be able to create a safe environment for our clients.”

He said they were prepared to do what was practically safe, and already have procedures in place that ensured the clinic was sterile and clean, “but as an industry we have to up our game.”
