The City of Vancouver has issued an order to shut down all restaurant table service as of midnight on Friday, March 20, 2020.
Only takeout or delivery will be allowed, and any establishment found to be operating table service as of 12:01am on Saturday will be subject to enforcement. All bars have already been closed as per the Provincial government order, province-wide.
“I know that closing all food and beverage to everything but takeout or delivery will mean serious hardship for many people, workers and business owners, but we are acting now with one goal ? keeping people safe.” said Mayor Kennedy Stewart.
“This new reality we are all experiencing will have significant economic impacts. That is why we are also looking at all options to provide immediate and medium-term local response and government advocacy. To all businesses and workers in Vancouver, we hear you and we will do everything we can to support you.”
