New Rules for the Opening of Bars, Shopping Centers, and Dental Clinics

Two months have passed since Albania’s total lockdown due to Coronavirus and, with the opening of various businesses and public services in the last few weeks, it is the turn of the leisure and recreational facilities to slowly and cautiously open their doors. Below, a brief overview of some rules and regulations.

Bars and Restaurants

Every bar and restaurant will place a hand disinfectant in their entrances.

No person with a fever of 37.5 degrees Celsius or higher will be allowed to enter any premises.

Employees will regularly wash their hands with soap and water for more than 20 seconds.

Employees will wear gloves and facemasks at all times and maintain a distance of 1.5 meters from customers.

Tables will be set up 2 meters apart.

All premises will place signs on the floor or any other form of visual signage to outline the requirements of social distancing.

Cash registers will be equipped with a protective glass screen.

Dentals Clinics

It is recommended that non-emergency procedures and routine check-ups be postponed for the time being.

Only patient with emergencies should be treated during this time. 

Because of the high risk of exposure to the virus in dental clinics (through saliva droplets), all clinics should have hand sanitizers, facemasks, and disposable gloves handy at all times.

All tools should be sanitized, as usual, and the entire working space must be cleaned and sanitized in its entirety before the clinic opens and after it closes.

Physical contact among the staff, including greetings, is prohibited.

Shopping Centers

Shopping centers will operate on a limited schedule.

It is strongly recommended that each visitor spend no more than two (2) hours in the shopping center. 

When trying on clothes, shoppers are urged to avoid contact with their skin and place them over existing clothes, whenever possible. Post-purchase, clothes must be washed before worn.

All shopping centers will have an isolation room for medical purposes, in case that a person is suspected of being infected with the virus.

Although payments in cash will be accepted, shoppers are strongly urged to make payments via cards.

As in other facilities, hand sanitizers will be provided by the shopping mall and all staff will respect distancing guidelines and other safety regulations.

There will be visual signs guiding the movement of the shoppers as they stand in line to visit the shops or there will be an appointed staff member who will direct all traffic in and out of the shopping center.
