Service from a distance - that's the way to do it - "Art of Coffee" shop on the first floor of Kasetsart University’s Ngam Wong Wan parking lot is using ropes to deliver drinks to customers.

An interesting comparison with things as they are here. A friend just got back from a big shop at Waitrose in Abergavenny. This is his experience:
“Wow, what fantastic discipline and anti-virus security! You  are marshalled into a queue, with 4-5 yards between each other, outside the store. As each person comes out of the store his trolley is emptied and spray-sanatised . The next person in the queue takes the trolley and goes into the store. (A maximum of 20 shoppers are allowed at any one time in our very large Waitrose store.)
Attentive staff with sanitising spray and cloths are dusting everything and everywhere continuously. When you go to the self-check-out, the screen etc and all the shopping stacking shelves are sanitised in front of you by the staff before you start pressing any icons etc. (There are now no serious shortages of any items.)
Back to the car where we disinfect the door and boot handles with sanatised hand wipes before opening. As soon as we sit down in the car, before touching anything, we sanitise our hands and the car/house keys.
We drive home, unload, hang up our outer clothes in the garden, enter the house, unpack and then hand wipe with bleach mixture all shopping, put the shopping away, put our carrier bags out in the garden, wash all house door handles and all used unloading/unpacking kitchen surfaces with bleach solution and then we wash our hands. Now, and now only, can we touch our faces.
We went for a walk up the hill to the church this morning. Not one car nor anybody passed us. Very quiet, almost weird with no traffic on the big dual carriageway below us except the odd large supermarket delivery truck.
A new way of life indeed!“

Thanks Hector - Waitrose being very organised and thorough   ;D  I doubt all UK Supermarkets will be the same, but good to see. ATB

I went to the 7-11 at 10 o'clock last night. I was the only customer and there was only one staff member present while I was in the shop (another appeared as I left the shop). On the way to the 7-11, I only saw one other person, a man on a motorbike. On the way back home, I saw 2 other people outside another convenience shop. Nice and quiet, but definitely different.

No such thing as Waitrose on Teesside, I had to go to Aldi. Queue outside as limiting entry (1 in 1 out). Fairly crowded inside still but reasonably well stocked. Max of 4 of any item. Tried to used contactless to pay but over £30 so had to use chip and pin. No hand sanitisers seen in store so good job I had my own.
