During difficult times surrounding COVID-19, there’s not much to be excited about, but as restrictions start to ease and phase two begins, that’s all about to change.
On Monday, May 11, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said she expects phase 2 of the B.C. restart plan to go ahead next week – including the re-opening of restaurants for sit down dining.
However, there has been a number of restaurants open for take-out during the shutdown.
Capital News will be compiling a list of all Kelowna restaurants’ plans to re-open to keep you up to date on where you can sit down, grab a bite, and drink some swill.
