For the first time in weeks, some area restaurants and businesses will be opening their doors again today.
Governor Kim Reynolds says the easing of restrictions in 77 counties – including Delaware, Buchanan, Clayton and Jones counties – will be the first steps toward signs of life returning to our communities after six weeks of pandemic lockdowns.
Some of the businesses that are re-opening today include Riverbend Pub and Grill, April’s Downtown Diner, Thompson Shoes, Honey Creek Furniture, The Markket and Corcoran Furniture. These businesses will need to make extra efforts to follow social distancing and other safety measures.
But just because a restaurant or business can re-open doesn’t mean they’re doing so. Some local restaurants have decided to keep their dining areas closed until further notice, including The Bread Basket, Olive That Deli and Delhi Landing. Those restaurants will continue to offer carry-outs and other options just like they have over the past several weeks.
Rec centers have also been allowed to re-open, but the Delaware County Rec Center says they will stay closed until further notice.
And churches may also resume services, but many churches have decided to wait until it’s safer for everyone, including all churches within the Archdiocese of Dubuque and First Lutheran Church in Manchester. These churches will continue offering online services or services broadcasted on the radio.
