To prevent the spread of the coronavirus, many coffee shops and cafe around Bathurst will no longer allow customers to use their keep cups.
Crema on George is one of those several coffee shops that will no longer allow keep cups and due to new government regulations introduced on Sunday night, customers will no longer be able to sit down and enjoy their coffee.
Crema's Ke'tia Meers said the coffee shop is upholding strict cleaning practices.
"Our regular normal cleaning practices are high and in place but we are increasing these to assist with stopping the spread of this virus," she said.
"All utensils and jugs at the end of the day are sanitised and ready for the next days use normally but we have now increased this to multiple times throughout the day."
Due to panic buying and buying limits on items, Ms Meers said it's also been difficult for staff to buy essential items such as sugar, paper towels and sanitisers.
"It makes it difficult because we buy more than two packets of sugar at a time," she said.
"I understand you got to support the community but it makes it hard to run as a business."
Piccolo's on William is also not accepting keep cups, as well as large groups and cash.
Brilliant Street Cafe has also banned the use of keep cups, however, has strongly recommended its customers to not use cash.
Banjo's Cafe will also remain open at the current moment, but will be limited to takeaways only and no eat-ins will be allowed.
