Governor's Shutdown Order - FAQ
What happens to guests that have not finished their meal by 9:30?
Upon consultation with legal counsel and analysis of the order, we recommend the following:
No new guest may admitted into your restaurant after 9:30 pm, except for take out orders
- No new alcohol sales or delivery after 9:30 PM
- Guests should be permitted to finish meals and previously ordered beverages in order to get home by 10:00 to comply with stay-at-home order.

As we have said in multiple media reports, Restaurants are not the problem. Tracing and inspections clearly point out restaurants are not the cause of the spike. Restaurants continue to get frequent inspections, and these inspections show that operators are taking the protocols seriously.
According to a recent analysis fewer than two percent of cluster infections (infections involving two or more cases) have occurred in restaurants in the last month.
