Museums Victoria photographer Rodney Start using self-serve checkout with perspex screen, at Woolworths, Canterbury Rd, Blackburn South, on 25 May 2020.

The screens were installed as a new public health strategy to help protect customers from potential COVID-19 infection. The screens weren't installed when Rodney had photographed the other public health measures at this supermarket the week before, on 18 May.

This photograph was taken during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic in Melbourne in 2020. It references the public health strategies that were in place to reduce the risk of infection with the virus for staff and customers. These strategies included social distancing as a key measure, perspex safety screens, cashless payment, home delivery and hand hygiene.
