Suburbs across the DFW metroplex are ordering bars and restaurant dining rooms to shutter in an effort to stem the spread of coronavirus.
Cities in Collin County, including Plano and McKinney, have ordered restaurants to close their dining rooms and offer food for takeout and delivery only, according to WFAA, while bars are ordered to close their doors entirely. The measures are similar to orders issued by officials in Dallas and Fort Worth, both of which have closed bars and restaurant dining rooms until further notice.
Check out each suburb’s current rules below:
- Plano — Restaurants within the city of Plano are limited to takeout and drive-thru orders only until April 27.
- McKinney — Restaurants are required to close their dining rooms until at least March 31.
- Denton — All restaurants, bars, and theatres are closed through the end of the city’s local emergency declaration, which is set to expire at the end of April.
- Fort Worth — After originally only ordering restaurants to reduce their capacity by half, mayor Betsy Price has since ordered all Fort Worth bars and restaurant dining rooms to close until further notice.
Eater will be updating this post with new information on suburban restaurant closures as it becomes available.
