In June this year, Shenzhen’s Bao’an International Airport had to temporarily shut its retail and F&B outlets after an eatery staff contracted Covid-19. And for the folks working at the airport, this means taking extra precautions to prevent the coronavirus from spreading.
The Starbucks outlet at the airport recently went viral on Chinese social media platforms Weibo and Xiaohongshu, when photos of its staff wearing full hazmat suits and surgical gowns were circulated online.
Netizens were amused by the scene (’cos it’s not every day that your Starbucks barista looks like the same guy who escorts you to serve your quarantine order, right?).
