On March 22nd, the South African president announced an unprecedented shutdown of all non-essential shops for a minimum of three weeks in order to encourage a wider uptake of social distancing. Despite the restrictions, people will still need to visit shops and businesses are looking at a range of methods to protect their customers and staff behind cash registers.
