I'm not sure about dining in either (and I've never been a fan of buffet places), but I have no issue whatsoever doing takeout.  There are three local restaurants my family frequents and we've been doing take-out from them all at least once a week since this whole thing started to try and support them financially (plus I get tired of cooking, lol).  Restaurants have stringent health guidelines to follow to begin with and I know all three are taking appropriate precautions to keep everybody safe.  If it were a national chain restaurant or some place I had less than 100% confidence in, I wouldn't risk it.

And I just want to interject that it's May 9th and it's SNOWING out right now.  One week ago it was 70 degrees out and I was getting yardwork done, today it's like early December outside.  Just adds insult to injury! [mad]

We don't eat at national chains, or fast food either.  Occasional trips to the Chinese Buffet or locally owned steak house, and that's rare anymore.  If they didn't have my money before, they don't need it now.  Not that I want them to fail, but their regular patrons need to support them.  Most of what is shut down, can stay that way, except that others seem to need them.  Bowling alleys are a fun outing and a break from the routine, but since routine is what I thrive on, things are not unbearable here.
