At 5 Borough Bagels in Clive, workers wear masks while they steam milk for lattes. Blue tape shows customers where to stand while they order. Owners Sarah and Toney Chem say there’s no room for people to sit at a safe distance inside, so they’ve set up a few patio tables outside. This is business during a pandemic, and it’s still a work in progress.
“We’re doing it day-by-day,” Toney said. “I expect this to not just vanish. It’s going to definitely be here for awhile, unfortunately.”
