In the wake of COVID-19, restaurant operators are adapting to a dynamic situation by restricting seating capacity, expanding outdoor dining options, and complying with changing rules and regulations.
How restaurant operators choose to reopen affects the risk they'll expose their customers, staff, and themselves to. Using expert recommendations from the CDC helps operators balance risk and reward.
Reopening means rethinking restaurant operations, from the front of the house to the back. There are no one-size-fits-all solutions. Thoughtful planning, diligent implementation, and sustained effort can help operators reopen and remain open.
