Gary Sorrell, owner of Sorrell’s on the Square, said his business was closed from March 16 until May 26. “We did limited meals for takeout the last few weekends, but we aren’t really set up as a carryout business,” Sorrell said. Sorrell said the restaurant industry already had the strictest guidelines for cleanliness, and he is proud of how clean his staff keeps the restaurant. “We sanitize even more than we usually do, and we added dispensers of foam hand sanitizer throughout the restaurant for people to use,” he said. Sorrell said he also added glass partitions between the booths. “I wanted something that looked like it had always been here, and these do. Before we reopened, I had the health department visit to make sure we were following everything we needed to be doing, and he said we were above and beyond, so I feel good about that,” he said. While his customers have not been nervous about eating out, Sorrell said outside of his business he has heard other people say they plan on waiting a while before going out to eat. “Many of them have underlying conditions, so they are playing it safe,” he said. John Larson, owner of The Warehouse, said his customers have been excited to be out. “We’ve done everything we need to to make sure our customers feel comfortable dining with us. We have the big patio to use, and we make sure to keep the social distancing in place,” he said. Larson also added partitions between booths, and the staff is sanitizing often. Lisa Cutshall and her husband, Mike, visited The Warehouse soon after it opened. “I was just happy to be somewhere where I didn’t have to cook,” Lisa Cutshall said. “The servers did a great job of taking precautions, and the food tasted great.” Jonathon and Heather Gray visited the restaurant the day it opened. “We weren’t nervous at all,” Heather Gray said. “I think they used every precaution they could. There are tables you can’t sit at to keep the social distance and Plexiglas between the booths.” Mike and Laurie Celeschi also have visited The Warehouse. “We ate inside. We weren’t nervous at all. The food was great, and the service was awesome.” Mint Ivy Boutique closed its doors on March 15 and reopened on May 16.
