Restaurant curfews by state

0
1147

One of the more confusing aspects of restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic is rules governing how late restaurants can stay open and what they’re allowed to serve. During the peak, many states issued general curfews and stay-at-home orders. These orders required residents to stay home except for essential activities. Since then most of the general curfews have been lifted, but there are still some targeted restaurant curfews in certain states. These restrictions can be confusing and may impact all service or just alcohol service.

The following is a table with the latest information on restrictions in all 50 states plus DC and Puerto Rico. To use the guide:

  • If a state does not appear, there are no restrictions on hours as of the last time this guide was updated. There may be other restrictions on dining capacity, see our guide for more details.
  • “L” indicates that restrictions vary widely by city or county within the state. (Note that even entries marked as “Y” or “N” may have some variation by city/county.)
  • If the “Alcohol only” column is marked X, the restriction applies only to serving alcohol and does not affect food service or other operations.
  • Information is not guaranteed to be up to date (though if you find any errors, please contact us).
