Xiaomi announces safety measures in its stores and service centers

Apart from implementing work from home policy for its employees, Xiaomi announced several safety measures it has taken in its stores and service centers.

Customers who want to buy a Xiaomi smartphone can call up their nearest Mi Home store and place the order. As part of Xiaomi’s ‘Delivery on Call’ service, these stores will deliver the smartphone directly to the customer’s home.

The staff in Mi Home stores wears masks at all times and keep their hands sanitized for walk-in customers.

At its network of over 2,000 service centers, Xiaomi allows only four customers at any given point of time. This helps customers to maintain a healthy distance from others while getting their smartphone repaired.

Apart from this, Xiaomi’s staff also uses masks, shoe covers, sterile gloves and sanitized hands while offering home service to its customers. It also sanitizes devices to ensure all possible modes of Coronavirus infection are clean.
