Sick till operators must use tissues

Published 16/12/2013

IT is little wonder that cold and flu germs spread at this time of year.

How many readers have had the misfortune to pick check-out operators with colds? As they scan your items, they stop to cough and sneeze into their hands – not a tissue or wipe in sight.

Why do shop and supermarket managements continue to permit such poor hygiene practices?

Health promotion agencies also have a duty to do more.

Is it not time to bring back the ad campaign: Coughs and Sneezes Spread Diseases?
