How social distancing in restaurants is provided in different countries
Along with masks, social distance has become a real sign of the time of the pandemic, which changed the face of cities; especially in the recently opened restaurants.
Coronavirus forced to make social interaction more organized: to reduce the risk of infection, people should maintain a distance of one and a half to two meters.
The restaurant owners all around the world have new problems: in the opened establishments, you need to force guests to stay away from each other. Restaurateurs invent the most exotic ways. There are places where you will be put in a greenhouse or forced to dine in the company of an inflatable doll in a wig.
Restaurants have already opened in Germany, but visitors are required to maintain a social distance of 1.5 m. In Schwerin, the owners of one of the institutions found an original solution to the problem: guests are given special hats.
Foam "blades" do not allow people to approach each other closer than the distance established by law. Customers note that this, of course, is not too comfortable, but they are glad of the opportunity to have lunch again in the restaurant.
Even though some bans have begun to rise gradually, with citizens now more free to act, the coronavirus pandemic is still a risk and should not be treated differently.
On the occasion of the reopening of relaxation spaces but also of "social connection", including bars, terraces or restaurants, some special "tools" were created for location owners to ensure that their customers fully comply with the rules of social distance, which are still in force.
Thus, even if some find this extremely funny, in addition to the indispensable protective mask and gloves, special tables have appeared against the unwanted approach of this period. In the United States, several owners of bars and terraces have already appropriated them, and customers seem not to have been reluctant about this invention, giving it a try and having fun at the same time with funny videos or photos in which appear in the new hypostasis.
The tables are individual and circular, with a space in the middle for a single person. Thus, even if you want a closer relationship, if the other person you are with is inside the "table", this is practically impossible.
In the form of huge lifebuoys, the protection tables are supported on metal structures provided with wheels. Thus, customers can get closer to each other to beak a glass at a distance of about 1.5 meters from each other. These personal protective tables appeared on May 16 at the Fish Tales Bar & Grill in Ocean City, Maryland, United States and were appreciated by customers, happy to be able to rotate freely from one "table" to another.
Protecting ourselves is important during this progressive pandemic. DIY masks are different and improvised from different stuff, people are ingenious and this is the result. Everyone strive to spread good mood and positive emotions. Here is where people decided to “create” something new and funny.
Handmade masks, need to be tested, so to understand if it works. Some masks are made just for fun, without any protection, but others can be even better than the one we are used to wear. Specialist are afraid of the plastic bags, which brings the risk of suffocation.
Remember that masks are not assuring you health, and definitely protecting you from the virus. The best way to stay healthy and really safe, is at home. Please stay at home, keep the social-distancing and avoid contact with strangers and not only. The virus is constantly spreading and affecting different regions and countries, that’s why you don’t have to be 100% sure in your mask defence.
This compilation can be the funniest you have seen for today, or maybe a fashionable trend. Kitchen sponges, diving masks and other stuff is the new trend on internet. It is boring to look the same with others, so let’s see how people decided to make their masks.
The newest symptom of coronavirus infection is the appearance of red spots or a transient form of hives. This is the conclusion reached by several experts, dermatologists in the National Union of Dermatologists-Venerologists in France.
We all know that among the most common symptoms of coronavirus infection are dry cough, fever and respiratory difficulties. There are, however, other signs that tell you something is wrong, but these occur sporadically and not all patients experience them. These include loss of taste and smell, irritated and teary eyes, sore throat, and, more recently, the appearance of reddish spots, sometimes painful but also hives. This is the conclusion reached by several French doctors who thus sound an alarm.
The National Union of Dermatologists-Venerologists in France warns in a press release about the symptoms that may appear on the skin in case of infection with Covid-19. "A WhatsApp group of over 400 dermatologists, organized by the National Union of Dermatologists-Venerologists in France, indicates skin lesions, whether or not associated with other Covid symptoms," the press release states. Dermatologists detail the symptoms in question: acrosindromas (pseudo-degeneration in the extremities), the sudden appearance of sometimes painful red spots and transient episodes of hives.
The dermatologists' union suggests that if these skin symptoms occur, consult a specialist doctor as soon as possible. The analysis of the numerous cases reported shows that these symptoms can be associated with Covid-19. "We alert the public and physicians to detect these potentially contagious patients as soon as possible (they do not necessarily show signs of breathing difficulties)," the statement concludes.
More than 1,500 people shared their complaints and concerns on Twitter. Here are the main ones.
This is perhaps the most common problem. Yes, remote work expands the possibilities. You no longer need to spend several hours on the way to the office and back or be distracted by noisy colleagues in the open space. But when you work day after day, week after week, without personal communication, you get a feeling of isolation. This is especially difficult for sociable people who need more communication.
The distinction between working and non-working hours
It is difficult to disconnect from work when the home and office is the same place. Especially if team members are in different time zones. There is a feeling that you are obliged to answer at any time of the day and agree to late video calls. Sometimes this is inevitable, but it is irrational to work regularly for 14 hours a day in the long run.
There are almost more of distracting things at home than in the office. Especially if you have children or pets. Mothers of two or more children are the one who are easily distracted during work hours at home, the needs of children always comes on the first place.
Talking with colleagues in the kitchen or near a water cooler is an inspiration to many. After all, not everyone shares their opinions in instant messengers, where they are visible to the whole team, and the text cannot be deleted. During personal communication, new ideas often arise, and not fully formed thoughts in the discussion process lead to unexpected decisions.
Video chat tools began to work much better, but there are still overlays: either the connection breaks, or the background noise makes it difficult to make out clear the speaker’s words. And in general, they are inconvenient for several people to communicate, because they were created for one-on-one meetings.
The feeling of less importance than those in the office
Lack of respect is not the most obvious minus of remote work, but it often arises in companies where personal communication is valued. Indeed, there are people who procrastinate at home. But their minority, and prejudice applies to everyone. Responsible employees because of this have once again to worry about the opinions of colleagues.
