Spring break begins with no COVID-19 restrictions in Texas
Spring break is arriving in Galveston following a year that was unlike any other in recent memory. “People are going to be definitely excited to get out but I don’t think it’s going to be like a regular spring break at all,” said Jared Glover, a manager and bartender at Market Station. He said spring break will probably be smaller this year, though he still expects customers to head out. “If you’re going out, you already know the inherent risk of that so let people be free and make their own decision,” he said. But I don’t think you should require anybody else,” said Katie Baker, a bartender at Bubba’s on the Strand.
Keeping the party going: adapting to COVID-19
(NBC NEWS) – When COVID-19 restrictions forced weddings, parties and other events that had been planned for months to cancel, Jill Marcus’s catering business came to a halt. She turned things around by reimagining how events needed to look in order to be safe, offering boxed appetizers and buffets protected by a six-foot Plexiglas screen. Other businesses are also adapting in order to stay afloat. Craig Barbour, owner of Roots Catering and Little Fete, adjusted as well. “All you have to do is a little bit of warming, a little bit of stirring maybe,” he says of his new offerings.
