"Alexis Schurr" (2020-03-28)

A Priceline chemist has implemented a hygiene hack to protect customers and staff amid the coronavirus outbreak. 

The store in Pitt St Mall's Westfield, in Sydney's CBD, has covered every Eftpos machine with glad wrap.

A staff member told Daily Mail Australia they intend to replace the plastic film every time it is touched by a customer. 

She said the measure will speed up the sanitising process required during this time.

It remains unclear whether the directive was made by the company or franchisee.  

It comes as confirmed cases of the illness have soared to 710 in Australia, including seven deaths. 

In a statement on Monday, Priceline announced additional health precautions stores would be taking in the wake of COVID-19.

'Our stores have strict hygiene practices that are adhered to everyday, however, we have put in place additional steps to keep team members and customers safe,' it read. 

'These include the removal of all product testers, increasing the frequency of hand sanitisation and cleaning of key areas within the store including the pharmacy, Health Stations, checkouts and pin pads.'

The pharmacy chain added that beauty services would be suspended but vaccinations will continue.

Staff members said the glad wrap will be changed every time a customer is required to enter their pin number

'Our 1400 pharmacists will continue to be available to provide advice to customers, however, physical contact will be reduced and any non-essential services will cease in the short term,' the retailer said. 

'We have ceased in store beauty services including ear piercing. Our 650 trained Beauty Advisors will of course continue to be available in store to assist customers with excellent advice. 

'Key services such as Flu vaccinations will continue to be available across the store network. 

'The vaccine is available in many states now and will be available across all states from Wednesday 18th March.'
