Starting today, March 16, all Chick-Fil-A restaurants in the U.S. are closing their dining room seating to keep employees and customers from contracting the COVID-19 virus.

According to the restaurant's website:

"Our highest priority continues to be the health and well-being of everyone who comes into our restaurants, As we navigate the evolving impact of coronavirus on our communities, we are temporarily closing our dining room seating to help limit person-to-person contact. Some of our restaurants may only offer service through our drive-thrus, while others may be able to offer takeout, delivery or mobile order options. Thanks for your patience. We know these are challenging times, but we’ll continue to do our best to serve you."

At this time the company is not saying when the dining rooms in their restaurants will reopen, but that those stores that have drive-up service will still offer it while others may be able to order for delivery.
