How COVID Has Affected Restaurants


By Hannah Butler 

Since March, restaurants have been hit hard by the effects the pandemic has had on the world. Lock-down had a lot of small businesses and restaurants closed temporarily, which didn’t help with the current unemployment situation.  

    The situation is better now. Most restaurants in McPherson are open for dine-in with social-distancing and protective glass shields in place. Some of the smaller spaces, like Noffy’s, are to-go only, since the space isn’t big enough to social distance.  

    With finances being tight for many businesses, some of them even closed down. One of these restaurants was Golden Dragon. They closed a few months ago and it was an upsetting loss for the McPherson community.  

    Overall, most restaurants in town are sit-it now, so you can feel free to enjoy dining in while staying safe and healthy.
