Many Spencer restaurants continue delivery, to-go, drive-thru options following governor’s health emergency declaration
Spencer restaurants and coffee shops are getting the word out about how their operations will be affected by a health emergency declared today by Gov. Kim Reynolds. The health emergency, issued to combat the spread of COVID-19 in Iowa, ordered the closures of many businesses, including dining areas of restaurants and bars, at noon Tuesday. However, according to the governor’s proclamation, restaurants and other similar businesses can still provide delivery, curbside pick-up and to-go services. Drive-thrus may also remain open. The restrictions on restaurants and bars set in the proclamation are in effect through March 31.
