Over the course of the pandemic, many businesses have been affected by the restrictions in all states of the U.S. making some businesses like restaurants and attractions to close temporarily and making amendments to follow new COVID-19 rules and restrictions.
With the vaccine, people and business owners could have seen a closer ending to this pandemic, but this has changed with the appearance of the Delta variant.
Owners know that restrictions are going to stay and restaurants are worried that regulations will affect their revenue after they start to recover from the pandemic. They have adapted their properties, squeezing seatings on their outdoor patios, buying glasses to keep a distance between clients and employees. They claim that coming back to more restrictions will be a challenge for them. Even though people are coming back to restaurants, they still face issues like labor shortages, costs rising and even the scarcity of some products. Problems that customers don’t see but are still there even before the Delta variant.
But this doesn’t just affect restaurants, if new restrictions are implemented because of the Delta variant, and ask travelers to stay at home, attractions will be affected again. An industry that works closely with restaurants, due to the fact that this industry attracts travelers who are more likely to decide to go to restaurants for lunch and dinner.
With fall and winter getting closer, new variants may appear and the responsibility of the government to take action and take into account all those businesses and all the jobs that are in danger.
