As South Africa entered advanced level 3 of lockdown, many restaurants and fast food outlets could open their doors and serve customers again. 


The correct safety protocols should be followed to ensure food safety standards are adhered to.

A video was posted to Twitter by user @MakhesaMavunda, showing a customer shocked at staff not wearing their masks or protective gear. “They are having discussions without masks. Betina, we are expected to wear masks."

The fast-food restaurant has had to provide training and verbal warnings to the staff at the outlet of a local mall who were preparing food with no masks on. 

Customers are now wondering if ordering takeaways during lockdown is as safe as they thought it would be. 

Breakfast with Martin Bester saw the video and asked listeners what they take on it would be. Listeners' opinions were divided.
