This morning, Governor Bill Lee issued Executive Order 17 which takes further action to combat the spread of COVID-19. Under this order, restaurants are to offer only drive-thru, take-out, or delivery options. No dining in will be allowed. It also prohibits social gatherings of 10 or more people.

Said Mayor Chris Younger, “Strong measures must be taken to combat the spread of COVID-19. I urge all of our residents to heed Governor Lee’s order. I understand the restrictions on restaurants may be devastating to these businesses, so I ask you to keep ordering take-out and to keep tipping. We’re monitoring the situation closely and I am committed to taking whatever action is necessary to protect our community. I ask for your prayers for our nation, our community, and our leaders as we navigate this crisis.”
