How to Support Local Restaurants During the COVID-19 Crisis

The service industry is one of the first and most severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  All restaurants are mandated to open for dine-out service only.

There are a number of ways that you can support your favorite local restaurants and the employees that depend on them.  Many restaurants are open for takeout (many offering curbside pick-up) and delivery.  Purchasing gift cards at restaurants that have had to shut their doors is also an excellent way to show your support.
