How Coronavirus Could Make People Move
The pandemic isn’t just going to change how we live—it’s going to dictate where we live, too. The coronavirus is upending our jobs, canceling our pastimes and messing with our social lives. Some of these effects might linger for months, even years, becoming the new normal. But the pandemic isn’t simply likely to change how we live—it could also alter where we live. As we contemplate all the ways that Covid-19 could change the world, big and small, we should consider that the pandemic’s combined effect on public health, the economy and social behavior may cause fundamental shifts in our human geography. Why choose to stay in a crowded city where body bags piled high during the worst parts of the pandemic? Why especially, when Covid-19 has shown many employers that remote work is a serious possibility?
Restaurant Owners Are Forecasting Massive Closures
What would they need to survive? “The sentiment among restaurant operators is that only 20% of us are going to survive,” said Philly chef Tyler Akin, citing a James Beard Foundation survey of 1,500 restaurateurs, of which 80% indicated they were uncertain if delivery and takeout would sustain them. In places where restaurants were forced to close, nearly 75% thought they would be unable to reopen after 2 months.
Restaurant and Bar Owners Say Social Distancing
Could wipe out their industry. The US state of Georgia allowed restaurants to reopen on April 27. The three owned by Ryan Pernice are still shuttered. The entrepreneur hasn’t opened his restaurants, Table & Main, Osteria Mattone and Coalition Food & Beverage, since March 16. Pernice is worried about the health of his employees and customers, but there’s another reason the restaurants are still shut down: They can’t make a profit with social distancing rules in place. If you talk to restaurants across the globe, the language might change, but the math is the same,” Pernice told CNN Business. “Restaurants and bars need volume and traffic to make them work.”
8 New Things You May See
As restaurants reopen. The nearly nationwide lockdown is finally ending in much of the country, and as a result, restaurant owners are quickly trying out new and creative ways to keep patrons safe, happy, and well-fed. The restaurant industry already has strict health guidelines to follow as they reopen, which may change the way diners experience their favorite eateries for some time. But many restaurants are taking even further measures to promote a certain level of comfort and safety for their staff and customers. Here are just a few new things that you can expect to see the next time you step into your favorite dining establishment.
Did You Know?
How pandemics end. When will the Covid-19 pandemic end? And how? According to historians, pandemics typically have two types of endings: the medical, which occurs when the incidence and death rates plummet, and the social, when the epidemic of fear about the disease wanes. “When people ask, ‘When will this end,’ they are asking about the social ending,” said Dr. Jeremy Greene, a historian of medicine at Johns Hopkins. In other words, an end can occur not because a disease has been vanquished but because people grow tired of panic mode and learn to live with a disease. Allan Brandt, a Harvard historian, said something similar was happening with Covid-19: “As we have seen in the debate about opening the economy, many questions about the so-called end are determined not by medical and public health data but by sociopolitical processes.”
Many Americans are unaware of the coronavirus-related financial assistance that’s available to them. Many unemployed people may not be aware of the coronavirus-related financial assistance that is available to them. A whopping 80% of unemployed Americans say they haven’t reached out for relief measures, according to Credit Karma. They think they don’t qualify. They’re overwhelmed by all the information. They don’t even know where to start. These are the top reasons for not accessing assistance, according to the financial advice website, which surveyed 1,037 U.S. adults in April about their understanding of government relief measures related to Covid-19.
