Running List of States Allowing Restaurants to Reopen
Restaurants in several states have opened doors for the first time to on-premise dining or plan to do so in the next coming days. The ‘rolling reopening’ started with Alaska last Friday and next was Georgia and Tennessee opening doors this past Monday.
The other states opening up include Montana, Iowa, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Texas. When Texas reopens this Friday, the number of potential open establishments in the country could double as the state has more restaurants than all the other states combined according to National Restaurant Association 2018 data.
