Spencers during the coronavirus

On Monday, March 16, Gov. Andy Beshear ordered all restaurants and bars in Kentucky to suspend in-person services, in an effort to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Today’s world can seem a bit scary. Businesses being told to close for an undetermined amount of time, WKU canceling all face-to-face instruction and the Olympics being pushed back to 2021. For local businesses, this new normal we’re seeing can be especially daunting. 

After Gov. Andy Beshear announced all bars and restaurants would need to close or move to take out form, local businesses hurried to alter their processes. In the spirit of #TogetherKentucky, people all across the state are rallying together to support the cornerstones of their communities, local businesses and restaurants. 

Here is a list of locally-owned restaurants in Bowling Green with information on how they are available during the shutdown.
