Divider Curtains in Restaurants - COVID-19
As restaurants transition from being closed or operating with “Take-Out Only” service, many owners are thinking long and hard about how best to safely open following the COVID-19 outbreak. Many are changing their operating procedures to incorporate additional sanitation efforts, incorporating personal protection equipment (PPE), and maintaining spacing to help prevent the spread of the deadly virus.
One example of some creative thinking by a restaurant owner in North Canton, Ohio is the use of transparent curtains between tables. Because the Twisted Citrus dining area is relatively small, it prevented the tables from being separated by the prescribed six feet. The restaurant owner decided to suspend working transparent vinyl curtains between each table. This allows diners to feel safely separated from other parties while not feeling confined while they ate.The vinyl curtains can be wiped down frequently and washed each evening. While they utilized a simple PVC pipe to hang these see-through curtains, a track option would provide a more refined look and improve upon this particular solution.
