People are loving this German café's social distancing 'policy'

A restaurant in Germany is going viral

after sharing a photo of its creative

social distancing measure.

Cafe & Konditorei Rothe recently reopened

its doors following Germany’s continued

relaxing of quarantine restrictions.

The restaurant, with some help from the country’s RTL TV station, put together a stunt that announced its reopening with a bang.

The result? A photo that’s

now gone viral worldwide.

The image, which shows customers

dining outside with pool noodles attached

to their head, was intended as a joke.

many social media users took the post seriously, believing the restaurant was handing out “social distancing hats”.

Others congratulated the café on its “brilliant” stunt, noting that the move

was likely stirring a wave of free publicity
