Local restaurants switch to carry-out only

As already publicly recognized, COVID-19 has shut many restaurants and stores around the area down. Since this virus has become a significant problem in the United States, the “Center for Disease Control and Prevention” (CDC) has responded with mandatory precautionary actions. This meant that many chain restaurants, stores or workout facilities have been temporarily closed to protect yourself and others. Through this outbreak of the Corona virus, many hometown restaurants and cafés have taken the opportunity to help the community with some classic meals.
