Today, we conducted inspections in restaurants, food sales and similar places (markets-cafes) together with authorised persons from the Ministry of Health. During the inspections, market and cafe officials and our teams in charge noted what kind of difficulties they suffered during this process, whether they took the necessary precautions for health compliance and how they could be protected against COVID-19.
Güngördü stated that our people should consider all warnings as a precaution and wash their hands frequently to protect them, and that a mask should be used continuously to cover the mouth and nose. He added “As a municipality, we carried out intensive studies to protect the health of our people with many practices we have implemented. I would like to invite all of our tradesmen to cooperate in order to take the necessary precautions, especially to comply with the rules on masks and hygiene, and wish all our people healthy days.”
