  • German cafe gives customers pool noodle-hats to help with social distancing

Instead of using floor marks and perspex screens to separate people, cafe owners distribute straw hats with two colorful swimming noodles attached to the top.

Cafe Rothe, located in the city of Schwerin, handed out hats with pool noodles affixed to them so their customers wouldn't be able to get too close to each other while they sipped their coffees on the patio. Owner Jaqueline Rothe, 52, wrote in the caption, "Today it's like this: distance measurement".

"This was the flawless method to keep customers apart - and a fun one", she said, explaining that local TV company RTL, which was filming the reopening of cafes and restaurants, came up with the idea.

"It's a flawless joke, and it's very amusing". Our customers really are. "But what showed us (it was) how hard it was to maintain a distance of 1.5 meters (4.9 feet)", he said. said Rothe, who claimed to have been surprised by the attention her photo has gained in media around the world.

Cafes and sugar shops usually have 36 tables inside and 20 outside in warmer weather, Rothe said.

The cafe was open during the shutdown, but was unable to serve customers inside. "But it also shows in a humorous way how hard it is for the catering trade if more than half of the seats are removed".

As countries look to begin reopening, businesses are left with the task of ensuring proper social distancing measures are in place for customers to safely return. "We'll take that on arrival", Rothe said.

Germany has lifted some coronavirus sanctions after Chancellor Merkel said the country was not in the first phase of the pandemic.

Merkel warned, however, that Germany would face a new rise in infections if people stopped committing to physical distance measures.

Germany has recorded over 174,400 cases of coronavirus and 7,884 deaths, according to the latest figures.
