Tokyo cheerleader pub’s coronavirus countermeasures include full face shields for customers

Though many restaurants in Japan have transitioned to take-out service these days, eat-in dining is still allowed. Cheers One, an izakaya (Japanese pub) with a cheerleader theme in Tokyo’s Ginza neighborhood, is one such establishment still offering in-restaurant meals, but with new health and hygiene policies in light of the coronavirus outbreak.

To start with, immediately upon entering the premises guests must wipe their feet on a disinfecting mat and have their temperature taken with a non-contact device, with those showing a fever asked to go home immediately.

Those who don’t have a fever can’t just mosey on in, though. There’s a multi-step disinfection process they have to undergo, with various sprays and wipes for their clothing, bag, hands, and even smartphone.

Once that’s all done, guests have to conform with Cheers One’s new dress code: gloves and masks, which must remain in place on the customer’s face whenever they’re not actively eating or drinking.

And finally, for those wanting the restaurant’s highest level of protection, there are loaner face shields.

Cheers One says it’s also reduced its number of seats by more than 50 percent, to maintain greater distances between diners, though it seems like the safest meal plan would be to avoid eating out altogether until the coronavirus pandemic calms down.

I would not step foot in that place until the pandemic is complete.

Holy crap. There is nothing that says “Welcome to your dystopian nightmare “ better than an upbeat article with photos of a girl dressed up as a fetishized cheerleader while covered in plastic in order to disinfect some dude who is so desperate to satiate his cheerleader fetish that he decided to have a leisurely beverage at his local cheerleader cafe in the middle of a pandemic.

Thanks Rocketnews!

I can't totally understand why they want to use this place in this "pandemic" situation.

Is Covid-1984 a new dystopian fetish in Japan? I can't see any value in wearing a visor over a face mask, unless it's some kind of kink or they are desperate to avoid gov't intervention. Anyhow, GL to the owners!

I zoomed in and saw the tiny straw hole in the mask. Sure are tricky these days.

Loved the girls outfits too. No way in America would you have such pretty women to serve without chewing gum, spewing body chubs and being polite.

and when you face and mask isn't on , is the virus meant to stop what its designed to do and infect others.

Bit like a doctor taking his mask and shield off during an operation , it might not infect the patient , but its only fora short time!?

Heres an idea get takeout or offer takeout

maybe you saw a different photo? Which photo in this story shows pretty women? All I see are short stubby girls who couldn’t do a cheerleader move if their life depended on it
