Coronavirus and Restaurants – level 2

21-05-2020 07:00

Restaurants across the US are opening again. There are some rules that they must follow. For example, fewer people can be in a restaurant at one time, tables must be six feet apart, and the staff must wear masks.

However, the rules are different in every state. One of the first states that opened restaurants was Georgia. However, many owners did not open because it was difficult to make enough money. The rules were too strict.

In Ohio, restaurants opened their outdoor area first. One owner put shower curtains between tables. This helped increase the number of people that could sit at one table. The owner could not use Plexiglas because it was too expensive and difficult to set up.

Restaurant guests must wash their hands and follow the rules. It is the best way to keep everyone healthy.

Difficult words: shower curtain (a piece of plastic that a person pulls, and it keeps the water in the shower area), increase (to make bigger), Plexiglas (thick plastic that looks like glass).
