TRUSSVILLE — Starting on Monday, May 11, 2020, restaurants across the state of Alabama were once again allowed to serve food inside their dining rooms. Governor Kay Ivey’s amended Safer at Home Order set forth guidelines for restaurants to follow in order to continue the fight against the spread of coronavirus.
Restaurants are now allowed to open dining rooms, as long as they keep 6 feet between tables. Eateries are also asked to follow guidelines from the Alabama Department of Public Health, which include using disposable menus, considering reservations-only or call-ahead seating, training staff on sanitizing procedures and providing hand sanitizer to employees and guests, among other suggestions.
Many restaurants have been offering curbside service or delivery and many are continuing those services even after the governor’s amendment.
The Palace restaurant in Trussville is one of many places not opening its dining room. The restaurant said it is still evaluating how to follow requirements and necessary protocol. The Palace is still offering curbside pickup.
