I think the availability of essential goods and services (food, utilities, etc) will be fine--except hospitals which will be overwhelmed with COVID-19 patients. If you have 20% out sick other employees can do overtime or you can drop marginal activities or you can hire new employees from the massive pool of unemployed (unemployed because they used to do non-essential goods and services).

It really doesn't matter if restaurants are open are not in 3 to 6 months--why would you want to go when there is a significant risk of getting COVID-19 (which is what most people will think)?
