A café in Schwerin in Germany has taken an amusing approach to social distancing enforcement, requiring customers to wear a pool noodle hat.

Cafe & Konditorei Rothe, located in the north-east of the country, posted a picture on Facebook of the novel concept.

Owner Jacqueline Rothe told Euronews that the site had reopened after being shut for six weeks.

The hats were apparently brought by German television station, RTL, who interviewed the café owner.

“They brought us huge hats and that was super cool. The initiative was so great – keeping social distancing is the most important thing,” she told Euronews.
