The same day that take out and delivery for mixed drinks opened up throughout Virginia, the City of Alexandria announced a suite of eased restrictions on businesses in Alexandria.
The biggest of these is opening up sidewalks and parking lots to vending for restaurant and retail establishments. In a press release, the City of Alexandria announced that retail and restaurants can set up shop on adjacent sidewalks or parking lots.
These locations are still only permitted for placing orders and customer pick-up, and the city said businesses should still comply with state orders limiting engagements to no more than 10 people. Outdoor dining is also prohibited at these locations.
“The City of Alexandria and the Alexandria Health Department strongly urge all restaurants and retail businesses, that are permitted to remain open and who choose to engage in outdoor sales, to adhere to Governor Northam’s Executive Orders 53 and 55,” the city said. “These prohibit all gatherings of more than 10 people and require maintaining at least six feet from any other person, with the exception of a family or household member or a caretaker.”
The city noted that these restrictions will still be heavily enforced by the Health Department.
The city is also suspending hours-of-operation restrictions on restaurants, convenience stores, catering operations and automobile service stations (gasoline stations).
The city’s delivery regulations are also suspended to allow all restaurants to provide delivery service and pick-up service.
