Area restaurants continue to reel from the cascading impacts of the coronavirus pandemic. Now, many area Chick-fil-A restaurants have taken the next step and closed their dining rooms.
The new Chick-fil-A that just opened in February in the Lansdowne Town Center will serve customers through its drive-thru, as well as bring out food to the curb for people who order via the CFA mobile app. Delivery from the Door Dash delivery service is also available.
“We care about the health and well-being of our guests and team members. As a precautionary measure, we have temporarily closed our dining room,” the restaurant posted on social media.
The Chick-fil-A location in Ashburn at Ryan Park, as well as the Chick-fil-A at the Dulles 28 Centre, the Chick-fil-A at Dulles Town Crossing and the Chick-fil-A on Edwards Ferry Road have all taken similar steps and closed their dining rooms.
Many other restaurants and businesses are changing their hours. The owner of the Delirium Cafe and Wild Wood Pizza in Leesburg has altered those restaurant’s hours to reflect the reduced customer traffic. Many area supermarkets are closing earlier than usual to allow staff to rest and restock the stores.
Meanwhile, the new Cafe Rio Mexican Grill in Ashburn is scheduled to open today. And The Burn has heard from multiple other new restaurants in Loudoun that are struggling to decide whether to postpone their openings in light of the crisis.
