Coronavirus Plexiglas protection
Discounter Aldi Süd, for example, is currently testing the "protective shield" of Plexiglas walls: With the approximately 1.5-meter-high covers, employees can be protected more effectively against infection with the coronavirus. In addition, the transparent walls make it even more important to keep your distance when shopping.
Rewe Süd also wants to have the protective walls made of Plexiglas installed in all branches in Bavaria from Thursday on, reports FAZ. In addition, distance markings could be imagined in order to better protect customers from each other.
The idea is also slowly gaining acceptance abroad. Coop Switzerland wants to cover the cash desks in all branches with Plexiglas, according to Swiss media. The retailer plans to install a total of around 10,000 panes. Competitor Migros has also announced corresponding conversions for the next few days.
