Local businesses are scrambling to cope after the City of Flagstaff announced widespread closures and restrictions as a precaution to slow the spread of COVID-19. KNAU’s Melissa Sevigny reports.
Restaurants and bars are now banned from serving food and drinks on their premises. Collins Irish Pub in downtown Flagstaff was preparing for their annual Saint Patrick’s Day celebration when the new restriction was announced. They’ll end the party early tonight at 8 p.m. when the 15-day restriction takes effect.
