Posted at 6:39 AM, Mar 16, 2020

Chick-fil-A announced Sunday night it will be closing its dining room seating in all restaurants across the nation over coronavirus concerns.


The company said the move is only temporary and would take different forms at different locations. Some of the restaurants may only offer service through the drive-thrus, while others may be able to offer takeout, delivery or mobile order options.

The company said these changes will help limit person-to-person contact.

The drive-thru also stopped offering a printed menu. The company said then that beverage refill service may also change though it's unclear what form that change could take.
