Hand car washes could lead to ‘second wave’ of coronavirus as sites fail to follow rules

Hand car washes could lead to ‘second wave’ of coronavirus as sites fail to follow rules

CWA chief, Brian Madderson, says the “prospect” of hand car washes complying to strict coronavirus regulations on social distancing was “almost impossible”.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Mr Madderson said: “How stupid that the second wave of coronavirus is channeled through these thousands of hand car washes which [are] allowed to open.”

Images sent to Express.co.uk showed workers at a hand car wash in Dover, Kent failing to abide by safety regulations. 

Staff were seen standing next to one another and having a conversation with customers as their cars were cleaned. 

The photographs show at least six cars parked in the tiny forecourt as staff battled for room.
