A South Beach staple, the Clevelander Hotel and Bar, has temporarily closed its food and beverage operations, citing concerns over the safety and well-being of staff and patrons as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic collides with a busy spring break period.

It’s a move that signals how the long-awaited return of customers is actually a double-edged sword for the hospitality industry. Because, although COVID-19-induced closures delivered severe financial blows in 2020, a busy 2021 brings its own complications.
