Using their noodles
To enforce new social distancing norms, one restaurant in Germany is asking customers to wear special hats made of pool noodles. When Cafe Rothe in Schwerin, Germany, reopened its doors to dine-in customers on May 9, employees greeted each customer with a funny hat. “This was the perfect method to keep customers apart—and a fun one,” owner Jaqueline Rothe told German television outlet RTL. The temporary measure helps keep customers 5 feet apart.
