A restaurant in Bogor, West Java, now puts mannequins on empty tables to prevent customers from using them and enforce the government's physical distancing guidelines.
Bambang, the manager of the Bumi Aki restaurant, said on Tuesday the popular Sundanese food specialist has been getting ready to face the "new normal" in Bogor, one of Jakarta's satellite cities south of the capital.
"According to the Covid-19 health protocol, restaurants are not allowed to operate at 100 percent capacity," he said.
An usher stood at the restaurant's front entrance to tell customers to wash their hands and check their temperature.
Customers who come in groups are not allowed to sit side by side since only a limited number are permitted on each table.
