Taking Care: Charlottesville Restaurants Halt Onsite Service
Below is a message from Charlottesville restaurants. Additional signatories will be added as they are confirmed. Many of the restaurants below are creating takeout programs. See takeout options here.
We are deeply saddened to announce that, due to the threat posed by COVID-19, we are halting on-site service at our restaurants. For some of us, this will mean temporary closures, while for others it will mean shifting to a model of solely takeout or delivery.
This decision is heart-breaking. We all entered this industry because of our passion to care for people. The change in operations will prevent us from caring for our guests and staff in the same manner that we have always enjoyed. But, for the time being, we have come to realize that the best way for us to care for people is to reduce the temptation for them to congregate, and thereby slow the spread of a virus that threatens our community.
Our hope is that circumstances will soon allow us to resume normal operations without the risk of spreading a pandemic. When that time comes, rest assured that we will return as passionate as ever to serve you.
