The coronavirus is making an impact on where people eat, drink and gather – including in Osakis.

Per an executive order by Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz, bars and restaurants, among many other businesses, have been temporarily shut down until March 27 in an effort to halt the spread of the pandemic.

However, in some cases, take-out, pickup and delivery are still options.

The Osakis Area Chamber of Commerce emphasized how important it is for local residents to continue to support their local businesses. Here’s a posting the Chamber made on Facebook:

“As of March 17th, our local community businesses need our support during this time more than ever. Many restaurants and bars will now be offering curbside pick up and take out orders, so you can still enjoy all your favorite restaurants from the comfort of your home! You can support your local businesses just by simply ordering pick up or utilizing their curbside service. Support local while also minimizing close contact with these great options. We as community members and fellow businesses need to come together and support each other during this difficult time!”
