Chipotle is also offering free delivery on orders more than $10 through its app and website for March.
It is now responding to the effects of the coronavirus and has included some services like delivery kitchens with dedicated teams and ingredient stations to prepare digital orders with care; new tamper-evident packaging to help ensure food is untouched during delivery, and a delivery tracker in its app to provide customers with step-by-step real-time updates from the restaurant to your location.
Aside from that, Chipotle will also be giving away free burrito giveaways.
Due to the guidelines that no social gathering is allowed for more than 50 people, most of the restaurants and bars are closing down as of today in several states.
Furthermore, the DC restaurant group is defying the restrictions and even calling to restaurants continue with their business.
Here is the official statement from Washingtonian Food editor Jessica Sidman:
Not everyone is following @MayorBowser‘s restrictions on restaurants and bars. Hill Restaurant Group owns Hawk ‘n’ Dove, Lola’s, Willie’s Sports bar, among other establishments. From the District Industry Facebook group: The safety and comfort of our patrons has and always will be a top concern for us at all of our Hill Restaurant Group restaurants,” the group wrote.
“Our staff has been trained to maintain even stricter safety precautions to protect our guests. In light of recent developments, all HRG restaurants will continue to operate as normal and we encourage our fellow industry folks to do the same,” it continued.
“We understand the gravity of effects that the Corona Virus [sic] has or will have on our community especially the hospitality industry. However, we will not bow down to pressure from the Mayor’s Office or any group for that matter who covertly is attempting to shut us down. We fully support our employees and our patrons. It is not our burden to bear nor is it our staffs’ burden to bear.”
But the mayor of Washington made its reply via Twitter on Monday morning While I recognize that all of us have been stressed beyond our immediate understanding of how coronavirus has so quickly upended our daily lives and personal and business existence — you must comply with the DC Health notice. We all must do our part to contain the spread of this global pandemic and get to the business of recovery as soon as possible. Until then, your compliance is required, and we will exercise the full force of our MPD, FEMS, DC Health and ABRA and the emergency authority to achieve it.”
