Shanghai authorities announced Sunday restaurants in the city's low-risk areas where no outbreaks have occurred in the past week will be allowed to resume dine-in services starting Wednesday. In Yuanyuan Garden Mall, many restaurants are making preparations for the reopening of on-site businesses. To limit crowds, the restaurants have taken several measures including recommending customers reserve meals in advance, dine at different times to avoid peak periods, keep tables apart from each other and set up clear signs to maintain at least one meter of distance between diners.
