A State-by-State Guide to Coronavirus-Related Restrictions at Restaurants

As the United States and Canada wrestle with the COVID-19 pandemic, some states and provinces have reopened restaurant dining rooms. This state-by-state guide offers a status check on whether restaurants are allowed to be open for dining in, or whether delivery and takeout are still the norm.

Keep in mind that local (county, city, and town) guidance may differ from the state, and that many restaurants may not reopen right away even if they are able. Takeout and delivery remains an option in all areas, though, and links are provided in each region on how and what to order.

This guide is compiled from online resources and is updated regularly, though all reopen dates and guidance are subject to change as local authorities reassess and update conditions.
