Car dealerships set to open next Monday

Car dealerships around the country are getting ready to open their doors on Monday, May 18 for servicing, repair and possibly some sales.

Under Phase 1 of the Roadmap garages have been given the green light to open for servicing and repairs.

It is less clear if dealerships can open for sales, although many believe where HSA protocols are met, dealerships should be able to open to sell cars from next Monday.

Ahead of reopening garages must  develop plan for safe operation and protection of staff and customers considering:

    •   Social distancing compliance
    •   Hygiene and cleaning
    •   Compliance in higher risk situations
    •   Extended opening hours  to enable social distancing
