Could this be the protocol for re-opening of restaurants?

A cafeteria in Germany has celebrated re-opening for business after the lockdown by giving clients noodles used during swimming in order to maintain social distancing in their cafeteria.

The owners of the Cafe Rothe in Schwerin, in the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, which also happens to be Chancellor Angela Merkel’s birthplace, were allowed to re-open for business a week ago, after lockdown measures were relaxed.

With residents going outdoors and enjoying some lovely weather in each other’s company, the cafeteria insisted on the “Keep social distancing” motto.

Instead of marking out the ground and putting up perspex screens to keep clients apart, the owners handed out straw hats with two coloured noodles stuck to them, for clients to wear when in the cafeteria.

One of the owners, Jacqueline Rothe, posted photographs on the cafeteria’s Facebook page of clients sitting at tables and wearing these hats. She added that many clients who visited the cafeteria were happy to enjoy coffee and cake or a beer in the sun.
