Massachusetts restaurants are still allowed to offer delivery and take out, but they've taken a massive economic hit. They lost an estimated $1.3 billion in April and over 200,000 jobs disappeared, according to the Massachusetts Restaurant Association.
On top of that, many owners have no idea when they may be able to re-open for full service — and what that may look like. In Georgia, restaurants have to meet 39 guidelines from the state that include caps on capacity and PPE equipment.
We check in with two local restaurant owners: Tim Athanasiadis of Esperia Grill in Brighton and Nia Grace of Darryl's Corner Bar & Kitchen in the South End.
