The owner said delivery drivers have also had to deal with people with HIV on several occasions to pick up their pizzas face-to-face rather than opting for contactless delivery. “This happened five times on Friday evening,” Ms. Kabalan said. “We had a person who wanted to pay in cash after saying they were positive for COVID.” Our driver had to tell them to pay over the phone because he didn’t want to take the money. “This is just ridiculous. If you are expecting a result or are positive for COVID, we should be informed.” Ms Kabalan said the store had to call the police on Saturday night after a customer made threats because his delivery was going to be five minutes late.

We will be in debt to all of our locals. “I think I can speak for a lot of businesses when I say we’re so lucky to be in Bendigo and not Melbourne.” The Bendigo community came together and supported each other from the start . Ms. Kabalan said the great support just pointed out how bad some behaviors have been. “We are a small family business,” she said. “I treat my workers like their own children, that is why enough was enough. “I will support my workers from start to finish.
