HOUSTON – Some Houston-area restaurants are closing their dining rooms and switching to curbside and delivery options only due to the recent spike in coronavirus cases.

Other restaurants are closing temporarily out of an abundance of caution.

Due to the recent spike of coronavirus cases, Gov. Greg Abbott issued an Executive Order Friday that scales back restaurant capacity to 50% beginning Monday. However, some restaurants are already taking an extra step for the safety of their employees.

Here are some restaurants that announced temporary closures and reopenings of curbside and delivery only options:

Alice Blue

Address: 250 W. 19th, Houston

Alice Blue posted a message on its Instagram page notifying the switch to curbside pickup after an employee tested positive for COVID-19 on June 11. No reopening date has been set.
