All the physical distancing we are doing now, is to be able to limit the number of new cases of the virus, to be able to have the health system handle new cases without being overwhelmed.

That is also one of the reason we need testing at large, the quicker we know someone has the virus, the quicker we can quarantine them and eventually plan treating them.

At one point it will be normal for a number of people to get infected and will be normal for the health system to take care of them. (like it is for normal virus people get every year)

There are many business that can open while keeping employees safe.

Most business that allow working from home will will keep it like it is right now (I don't think I will see the inside of my office until late summer).

Many small stores can open, especially if there is no real contact between the customer and the store staff (book stores, electronic stores...)

For example,
In Québec, most food businesses are open, either limiting the number of customers; or only allow for pickup an/or delivery.
Hardware stores are open, and a few other essential business (like plumbers, electrician for emergencies).

Today, they are allowing residential construction to get back to work for homes that need to be delivered in July; they are also allowing plant nursery to open as well as car mechanics and mining industries.

There are some categories of businesses that will take a long time to re-open (like you say, restaurants, bars, personal care ... ).

All spectator sports and cultural event (music shows, theater, movies, museums ... ) and shopping malls will not reopen until we have a vaccine.
I'd rather be phishing!
