At the beginning of May 2020, restaurants in certain states were allowed to partially reopen for dine-in services. Many offered delivery and takeout throughout countrywide shelter-in-place orders, if they didn't temporarily (or permanently) shutter their doors entirely. Now, restaurants all over the country are facing unprecedented and unexpected challenges as they realize that opening to partial capacity doesn't bring in as much revenue as they might have hoped. They still have to staff their restaurant as though they're operating at full capacity despite not seating as many customers as before. Concurrently many residents still don't feel comfortable occupying enclosed spaces or public areas in general.
