Yahoo Finance revealed a study through Piper Sandler revealed that just under 47 percent said they're more than likely to go to restaurants once they reopen, and while that is just under half, it's encouraging news after it was 60 percent in their April survey.

Also, the study showed that 63 percent said they would be more sensitive to eating in crowded restaurants has also risen from 62 percent last month.

Now while restaurants are doing curbside and takeout, even though they shut down dining, a good 50 percent says they're currently going to restaurants for pick up or drive-thru service.

The following businesses like child care centers, massage/personal care centers, and youth clubs are currently open while the following businesses will open this Friday (May 22nd) at 25% capacity:

  • Bars
