Worried about airborne transmission of COVID-19? Here’s what restaurants should be doing to sanitize indoor air in the dining room

Experts and a San Francisco operator discuss the next level of safety protocols restaurants face to curb the spread of COVID-19

Since the pandemic hit in March, restaurants have been focusing on curbing the spread of the deadly coronavirus by expanding sanitation of high-touch surfaces, adding barriers between tables, creating more outdoor seating, wearing masks and implementing strict distancing protocols.
