Schools grab and go meals, some delivery


Due to a high level of interest in receiving free grab and go meals or delivered meals in area school surveys, schools have made the decision to offer door-to-door delivery of this food.

Parents and guardians should have received emails or notice via social media regarding each school’s offerings.

Impact on businesses


As of Tuesday, a state-wide requirement was released banning no more than 10 people to gather at any one place, with some exceptions.Bars and restaurants are among those required to close for in-restaurant dining. Many local establishments are offering more carry out and delivery options or restricting the number of patrons who can enter, in addition to increased cleaning efforts.
