Finding their way in a new normal

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

In most states across Australia, restaurants, bars and cafes opened over the 16th and 17th May. But,unlike the usual casual nature of eating and drinking out pre-COVID-19, booking is essential to get your seat. With restrictions on tables (no bigger than four people) and numbers of people per squarefoot, bustling pubs or atmospheric restaurants are not near being restored to their former glory.What’s more, restaurants are taking new precautions with no condiments on tables, laminated menus, staff wearing protective clothing (masks and gloves) and frequent sterilisation of high touch points; levels of procedure more akin to hospitals rather than your faithful local.
