Galway’s Dough Bros pizza restaurant has closed it doors, saying that they, and everyone, “needs to be at home” amid Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
In the past few days the pizza restaurant decided to shutter their dine-in services, and switch solely to take-out and delivery service after noticing an increase in traffic despite people being recommended to limit their social contact due to the spread of coronavirus.
“Despite the warnings and recent measures we expected business to quieten off which would make things easier to manage,” a facebook post from the restaurant said at the time.
“But if anything it has got even busier and that has become a problem as it makes the steps we have introduced even harder to maintain.”
For the past three days the lads have kept up work, letting people call ahead for collection, as well as delivering within the city.
But despite this model working, the Dough Bros team gave come to the conclusion that they need to be at home, as does everyone, to help limit the spread of the coronavirus through social distancing and isolation.
“Hi Guys, as we said we would monitor the situation daily, hourly even. A day in the new world is the same as a week ‘back in the day’. So we must adapt quickly,” a fresh statement read.
“As most of ye know we switched to collection over the past few days and created the correct enviornment for staff and customers alike.”
“Despite the new model working and it going quite smooth, we just cant help feeling passionately that WE NEED to be at home. EVERYBODY needs to be at home.”
“Isolation is not a nice word but it is now necessary. Doing it now will give us comfort in the hope that in a few weeks time we will watch the curve drop. By god will we be happy we acted early and thoroughly then.”
“There is no need to panic. The whole point of acting strongly now is that we avoid real panic in the coming weeks. Lets act now and do our bit and push everyone to do the same.”
“Look forward to seeing you all when we get through this and WE WILL get through it.”
