Teddy bears placed on restaurant seats in Iloilo to ensure social distancing during dine-in

A restaurant in Iloilo City had a cute and creative way of ensuring social distancing as it reopens for dine-in.

According to a report in "Unang Balita" on Wednesday, teddy bears were placed on some of the seats in order to follow the 50% seating capacity requirement under the modified general community quarantine.

Much like the zoo restaurant in Japan, using stuffed animals is the restaurant's way to let customers know that they're concerned for their health, the manager said.

On Tuesday, the government allowed the gradual reopening of food establishments with dine-in services in areas under modified GCQ.

Dine-in service in food establishments was given the go-signal to operate at a maximum 50% of seating capacity.

The Cordillera Administrative Region, Regions I (except Pangasinan), IV-B, V, VI, VIII, IX (except Zamboanga City), X, XI (except Davao City) and XII, CARAGA, and the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao will be under modified GCQ from June 1 to 15.

The rest of the country, including Metro Manila, is under general community quarantine.
