Certain states such as Florida and Georgia have implemented new safety programs which will allow restaurants and retailers to open back their doors to customers with certain stipulations. At what capacity restaurants can seat their guests depends on each State, but the main goal of these new rules is to allow small businesses to begin operating again while still being mindful to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

One of the main challenges that restaurants will be looking to tackle is how to limit the physical contact between workers and patrons as much as possible. One item that comes to mind that usually comes in contact with multiple hands in a day is a typical restaurant menu.
