The National Restaurant Association of India issue advisory to all its members to shut down their restaurant operations from March 18-31.
The National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) has issued an advisory to all its members to shut down their restaurant operations from March 18-31, or till such a time when no new COVID-19 cases are reported.
This comes at a time when the hospitality industry is taking a beating due to dwindling sales because of the virus outbreak.
In a statement on Tuesday night, the NRAI said: “We find ourselves in an unprecedented situation where we are compelled to make difficult decisions which have massive financial implications on our businesses but we are doing this.
The association said that most employees use public transport to commute and they run a huge risk of getting infected and further becoming carriers of the virus.
“Therefore, to avoid such risk, we have advised all our members to shut down their operations and help curtail the spread of the deadly virus,” the NRAI said.
