Greetings, we operate an ice cream truck in the sunny Hawkes Bay.  Aiming to open in Alert level 2, we have a major concern over contact tracing. As our customers are predominantly children, how do we ensure they are providing us contact details safely? If we take orders online or by phone contract tracing is not an issue, however the bulk of the payments we receive from children is by cash. We have already worked out how to use cash safely, that is the easy part.We plan to leave hand sanitiser on a table for customers to use prior to collecting their order and a visitor book for contact details. How do we ensure customers are sanitising their hands without hovering over them? How do we ensure customers are completing the visitor book with their correct details without physically checking each time? If we use a visitor book, how do we protect children’s privacy?  If there is an adult with a child, are just the parents details all we require? We are concerned about the potential dangers of: Customers handling pens and the visitor book with out sanitising.Not collecting the correct details of each customer.The privacy of each customer (particularly children where there may be a custody issue or restraining order in place), The extra time spent on each customer and whether we need to increase our prices to cover this?Any advise would be fantastic thank you.

Hello, I have made the decision to close my hospitality business – restaurant.  All forward bookings have been cancelled.  It was for sale for the 4 months prior to the covid19 crisis however then it had “worth”.  Regular monthly function bookings and also advance bookings and a healthy turnover.  It relies heavily on the tourist trade, both summer and winter as we are close to Tekapo and en-route to Queenstown.  It is in a small older population community, so therefore don’t really have a local base to draw on.  I am now wanting to get out, as I have another career that I can return to that offers a secure income.  My main aim at the moment is to rescue what I can of the initial capital investment that I put in.  I will put it up for sale on trade me for “offers” which will mean that the plant, fixtures and fittings will go to the new owner, but if it doesn’t sell (which I am not hopeful about) how do I get rid of all the plant, fixtures and fittings.  Are there companies that can come in and buy all of this and remove it for them to resell/auction and are they going to want to buy it when they too have no certainty of resale in the current climate.  We currently do not have any debts that we need to cover, as we are all up to date as of 20/4.  The current lease expires 1 July and of course I will not be renewing it, although there is a right of renewal available 3 + 3.  As I have said, all I really want to do is recoup some of my investment so that I do not lose the lot.  Re-opening will result in the need for me to go into debt which I do not want to do.  What is the best way for me to proceed?
