Well, the world and our small piece of it here in Garrett County seems to be truly consumed with the COVID-19 outbreak and related emergency declarations and requirements. With the closure of all state restaurants, bars, movie theaters and gyms, things have changed from a services standpoint as well as from a health standpoint. I did stop by Brenda’s Pizzeria last evening to get some of their (still available) takeout from the lower-level. Great food as always and JB, Jeanne and team were really doing a great job serving their many take-out customers. Other restaurants in the area are open for take-out (only) as well, so call your favorite restaurant to see if they are open and doing take-out.
