Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) has announced that it will be adopting a few key measures when it reopens once Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ), and General Community Quarantine (GCQ) measures are implemented in select areas.
Across its 38 dealerships around the country, HCPI has issued directives to keep its employees and its consumers safe whenever they visit a Honda dealership in the interest of health and safety.
All customers with a body temperature, which will be checked at the entrance, of 38-degrees Celsius or higher will not be allowed to enter. Furthermore, everyone will be required to wear face masks and will be required to sanitize before and while inside the dealership premises. Hand sanitizers and disinfectants will be placed in strategic locations for convenient compliance. Subsequently, dealer associates will also be required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE).
Social distancing measures will also be taken. Individuals will be required to stand at least one meter apart throughout the dealership premises. All common areas will have demarcations to help customers get an idea of the distance they need to keep between other people in the showroom.
Periodic Maintenance Services (PMS) and other after-sales services will resume, but customers should contact their dealerships to schedule an appointment to minimize the number of people within the dealership premises, and help the establishment address customers’ needs in an efficient and well-prepared manner.
Honda dealerships under the GCQ areas will be allowed to open following these guidelines. Customers can still enjoy browsing, shopping, and getting their cars serviced at the brand’s established showrooms and service centers. These guidelines will be enforced moving forward to flatten the curve and limit the spread of COVID-19 while the business operates. The dealerships won’t be up to full capacity yet, but HCPI will continue to render its services to consumers in these trying times.
