Are You Ready to Reopen Your Doors?

Is your restaurant or bar ready to open its doors to its customers? When asked what people have missed since the lock down, sharing a meal in a restaurant with friends is top of the list. Despite that, people will venture out cautiously. One way to ease their concerns is to share with them the precautionary measures you have taken to keep them safe and make them feel comfortable. To assist in this effort, we have compiled a list of checklists, guidelines and best practices.
