Chick-Fil-A Is Closing Down Its Dining Rooms To Limit Person-To-Person Contact

Chick-fil-A has decided to close down their dining rooms at restaurant locations and instead opt for drive-thru only services. This decision was made in response to the developing COVID-19 pandemic and as a way to limit person-to-person contact.

Prior to this announcement, Chick-fil-A was implementing more cleaning protocols in line with the suggestions put out by the CDC. In an online news release, Chick-fil-A outlined some of the changes being made. Restaurants closed indoor playgrounds to focus sanitation elsewhere, meals were served in carry-out packaging even if customers were dining in, and printed menus were no longer offered for drive-thru guests and beverage refills were being monitored closely.

Despite taking those strides, Chick-fil-A has decided to close down their dining rooms as an additional safety precaution. As per the press release, Chick-fil-A explained that they are making these changes to look out for their customers and staff: “Our highest priority continues to be the health and well-being of everyone who comes into our restaurants.”

In the meantime, some Chick-fil-A locations will still be offering drive-thru services, and where possible takeout, delivery, and mobile ordering options will be available as well. It is unclear how long this Chick-fil-A’s dine-in services will be closed for, but you can keep up with all of the steps the fast food chain is taking here.
