As people in Dallas are being encouraged to stay home — whether that’s because they feel ill or are worried about the spread of the new coronavirus in public places — Dallas restaurateurs are bracing for what’s expected to be a difficult March in terms of sales.
Dickey's Barbecue Pit has started offering 'contactless doorstep drop-off delivery' for customers who don't want to come into a restaurant. Ordering take-out or delivery is one way to support a business without spending time in a public dining room, says one doctor.
For those who feel healthy and have not come in contact with someone with COVID-19, is it best to stay home or is it OK to patronize your favorite restaurant?
1. Ask restaurateurs about their sanitation policies
2. Order take-out or delivery instead of dining in
3. Buy gift cards
