Will Chick-fil-A still open during the coronavirus outbreak?

A lot is changing in the fast food and restaurant industry during the coronavirus outbreak. Is Chick-fil-A still open?

Everyone is doing their part and practicing social distancing to help stop the spread of COVID-19. That said, many stores are drastically changing their hours or operation or shutting down temporarily altogether. Fast food restaurants are also making changes, and that includes fan favorite Chick-fil-A locations. Here’s the latest on how the restaurant is handling this situation.

The latest update from Chick-fil-A is from Sunday, March 15, and they share with the public that they are closely monitoring the coronavirus outbreak to comply with state and local regulations regarding restaurant operations.

Will Chick-fil-A locations remain open? At the moment, yes! But this may change as the situation develops. I expect hours of operation are going to be changing if the outbreak doesn’t improve or show signs of progress soon. To help control the spread and keep their employees as safe as possible, they have closed all dining room seating.

What this means: To limit person-to-person contact, only drive-thru service is available, though a few locations offer takeout. Of course, you can still place an order online for delivery. What you can’t do is enjoy your meal inside.

Other changes: Playgrounds are closed, no printed menus are offered to drive-thru guests, and beverage refill stations have changed.  We are glad to see Chick-fil-A doing their part and look forward to supporting the business. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on all updates if anything changes!
