It's the first full week that businesses across Kentucky reopened with no mask, social distancing or capacity requirements.
Some changes made to meet the challenges of the pandemic turned out to be good for business.
Along Russellville Road in Bowling Green, one visible change made during the pandemic is a white tent installed in front of a little diner named ConCon’s.
Owner Connie Blair said she had to adapt quickly to the requirements of the pandemic. She didn’t have any indoor dining for nine months
“I never shut the doors, not at all. I put in the drive-up window in six hours after it started and I put a PA system outside,” said Blair. “You know, they just cracked their window and waited for me tell ‘em to pull up to the window and pick their food up.”
She said the changes that saved her business are going to stay.
