Recently, a coffee shop in Germany held a reopening ceremony for customers after a temporary shutdown due to a pandemic. Remarkably, this place has given each guest a “spacing hat” to keep everyone apart.
Last week, coffee shop owners in Schwerin, a city in northern Germany, were allowed to resume business after the season-long blockade was lifted. While people began to meet each other and enjoy the outdoors, the cafes still operate under the motto of keeping social distance.
Instead of marking a spot on the floor for people to be as far apart as many other places, the owner gave each guest a hat with two colorful foam swimming buoys attached to it.

However, with the new rules on social spacing, her shop has reduced the number to 12 tables inside and 8 tables outside. In the past, when there was no outbreak, the tables were usually only 80 cm apart.
During the blockade, some cafes were still open, but only to serve orders to take away but not to welcome customers as before. And at the present time, most of the restaurants that have been reopened are serving only half the number of seats previously.
