Didn’t feel safe in the garage.

There is a whole area of society where people either don't believe or don't care about the virus. I find being in those environments terrifying. I work with people like it and try to avoid them as much as possible.

It’s understandable if it’s your first time out. We felt like that first time out back in the Summer.

We had to take the car in for service and MOT to the main dealer today. I was surprised/concerned at their lack of proper following of COVID regulations. The main door was open so I put face mask on and followed arrows to service area. There was a sign that the coffee machine was not in use but none to say use the sanitiser stood next to it! There was a big sign on the wall not to come in if you had coronavirus symptoms - too late, I’m already in hmm

Then I was told I could not pay over the phone but when I collected I had to use the machine which would be sanitised before and after. So I asked to pay by bank transfer. Receptionist goes off to ask and returns with details on sheet of paper which I refused to accept as being unsafe. Probably thought”got a right one here” and finally agreed to send details by email. You would have thought main dealer would have a better system. Dropped car keys into a sanitised tissue and followed footprints out to a different door. A door that is closed and needs pushing open by hand. Being me I have disposable gloves in my pocket so was able to put one on to open door.

They are supposed to sanitise the car before I collect. I will be taking a can of virus free spray which was recommended on here by a gnetter and give a good spray before I get in. First time I have been in anywhere since March. Didn’t feel COVID safe. How do others feel?
