As North Texas responds to coronavirus by social distancing and staying home, many restaurants and stores are offering delivery or take-out options or special hours. Dallas recently shut down all restaurants and bars, limiting them to take out and delivery only. The ban also applies to gyms and theaters. These restrictions are evolving and other cities may soon follow suit.
While this is (very) far from a definitive list, we hope to at least give you some ideas. Service industry workers are especially hit hard by the coronavirus response. Patronizing these places, even if just take-out, is a small way to support these people and businesses and do some good.
