Restaurant Owner/Manager React To Reopening

Restaurant owners and managers across Iowa are reacting to the news of Governor Reynolds’ announcement Wednesday that allows restaurants and a number of other businesses to reopen Friday. The Governor’s directive allows those businesses to reopen under new health rules intended to slow the coronavirus. Tony Powers, manager at Pizza Ranch in Dubuque says they’ve had a plan in place long before yesterday’s announcement. Powers says there will be a 50-percent capacity limit for the time being. Guy Parkin, owner of the Mining Company in Dubuque says they are still working on plans, but will reopen the dining area on Wednesday May 27th. Parkin says they’ll continue to practice the safety measures put in place by the Iowa Department of Public Health and the CDC. Before the pandemic Parkin says he had around 35 employees. Since then that number has dropped to 20. But he plans to bring all of his workers back. Parkin says when they do reopen tentative hours for business will be from 11 am to 9 pm. The Pizza Ranch’s hours will be from 11 to 2 pm and 4 to 7:30 Monday through Friday and 11 to 7 pm Saturday and Sunday.
