County Pleads with Bars and Restaurants to Close

County Pleads with Bars & Restaurants to Close Dining Rooms
Arlington County does not have the legal authority to order bars and restaurants to close for dine-in service. However, the County asks that Arlington bars and restaurants take responsible action and switch from dine-in service to only offering carryout and delivery. The County thanks all those that have already done so, but we plead with all our bars and restaurants that have not. Otherwise, we will likely be overwhelmed by COVID-19 cases and the health of everyone in Arlington will be in jeopardy. Press Release
