  • Description

    "Cones have been deployed in the supermarket car park to reserve space for customers queuing waiting to access the large Sainsbury's Supermarket in the High Heaton part of Newcastle. The COVID-19 infectious disease pandemic that affected the UK in the spring of 2020 meant that retailers were implementing several new (and hopefully temporary) procedures in an attempt to mitigate the risk of catching the disease for both shop workers and shoppers. These measures included limiting the number of people allowed in the store at any time and setting aside space in the car park to allow people to queue to get in to the shop in a way that complied with recommendations for people from different households to remain at least 2 metres apart.
