B.C. bars and restaurants are allowed to reopen as of today, so long as they can maintain social distance rules by capping the number of patrons and keep people two metres apart.

But one of the biggest questions for operators is who are they opening for? Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says we are ready for this step after "flattening the curve" of COVID-19 but that doesn't necessarily mean diners are ready for it. 

Many people are still worried about the spreading virus, others have taken a serious hit to their disposable income and visiting bars and restaurants is typically a social activity that won't be possible. On the other hand, many folks are likely ready to get out of the house and enjoy some professionally made food and others are eager to show their support for one of the hardest-hit sectors of our communities and economies — they want to make sure their favourite establishments can survive. 

So let us know — do you plan to support local eateries and drinkeries?
