The Texas Restaurant Association says they are concerned with the rise in cases but feel better equipped now with the procedures they have utilized this past year.
AUSTIN, Texas — Restaurant owners in Central Texas have faced all kinds of struggles this past year and a half, and now some are concerned about the newest surge in cases.
“I think where we’re at right now is a little bit of anxiety and a little bit of concern, as we do see some of these COVID-19 numbers increase,” said Kelsey Erickson Streufert with the Texas Restaurant Association.
Streufert said they do have more hope with this current surge in COVID-19 cases, due to people being vaccinated and restaurants now knowing the best procedures.
“We know what the best practices are,” said Streufert. “We know how to keep folks safe when they’re dining in our restaurant, even when there’s COVID.”
