So before we get excited about pubs and bars and cafés opening again, and having a conversation about 4 m² and social distancing, maybe we should have a cold shower to bring down the excitement and talk about how a business possibly covers its rent – as legislation allows landlords to charge full rent again and also ask for makeup of the discounts that were given, as well as pay wages where the capacity of the business has been legally reduced.
