Given the situation where infection continues to spread in Okinawa prefecture, we, at transcosmos, set acrylic partitions in front of, and at both sides of each employee’s workstation in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus whilst ensuring business continuity. We hope the acrylic sheets help the restaurant industry which has been hit particularly hard by the coronavirus outbreak, as well as help prevent and control infection in other industries too.
