As states like Georgia and Florida contemplate allowing restaurants to open after weeks of social distancing lockdowns in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the question becomes: How do you open while ensuring the safety of your customers and employees?

Famed restauranteur David Chang (Momofuku Restaurant Group) used Twitter to find out. He asked diners in post-quarantine areas like Taipei, Hong Kong, Korea, China to send pictures of what they’re seeing in their regions.

In addition to the expected face masks, gloves and reminders about proper hand hygiene that you might expect, restaurants there are using a variety of high- and low-tech solutions for social distancing and sanitation.
