Approximately one year ago, the coronavirus pandemic shut down some of our favorite places to go – bars and restaurants. Frustrated and desperate, restaurateurs have been agile by innovatively reworking their business models, where possible, just to stay open. Take-out, outdoor dining and ghost kitchens have helped to keep restaurants afloat, but most state and local guidance does not allow 100% occupancy yet.

There is light at the end of the tunnel. With vaccines rolling out and community transmission rates slowly descending, many are anxiously pondering – how safe is it to go out to eat now?

What should restaurant-goers take into consideration before reserving that table?

What can restaurateurs do to make indoor dining safer?

Join SyracuseCoE for a round table discussion with three experts: a buildings expert, a restaurateur and a public health expert to bring perspective and clarity to this complex question. The conversation will highlight the factors that contribute to a safer restaurant reopening and dining out experience. Audience members will get the chance to ask the expert panel questions during the Q&A session.
