Chick-fil-A Closes Dining Rooms Nationwide, Drive-Thru Only in Cedar Rapids
The wildly popular Chick-fil-A restaurant chain has announced they're temporarily closing dining rooms at all of their locations across the nation due to the coronavirus.
In a release on their website, which they've been updating periodically over the last four days, the company says:
Our highest priority continues to be the health and well-being of everyone who comes into our restaurants. As we navigate the evolving impact of coronavirus on our communities, we are temporarily closing our dining room seating to help limit person-to-person contact. Some of our restaurants may only offer service through our drive-thrus, while others may be able to offer takeout, delivery or mobile order options. Thanks for your patience. We know these are challenging times, but we’ll continue to do our best to serve you.
Both Cedar Rapids locations confirmed to us independently that they're currently only accepting drive-thru customers. They also posted the information to their Facebook pages last night:
Last Friday, the company announced these changes:
- Closure of playgrounds to focus heightened sanitation efforts in other areas of the Restaurant.
- Meals served in carry-out packaging. Guests are still welcome to dine-in with us.
- Drive-Thru Guests will no longer be offered a printed menu.
- Beverage refill service may change.
