Virus delivers blow to bars, restaurants

By Jim Hagerty

ROCKFORD – The parking lots at local bars and restaurants were eerily vacant Monday night, as Gov. J.B. Pritzker ordered all taverns to close and restaurants to suspend all dine-in services at 9 p.m., amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.

The governor’s order will keep bars closed and limit restaurants to carryout, delivery and drive-through service at least through the end of the month. Pritzker issued the order Sunday, after local officials confirmed Winnebago County’s first case of coronavirus (COVID-19)–a 60-year-old man who’s at home recovering.

The shutdown leaves dozens of local service-industry workers with few options outside of what could be scant unemployment benefits, which could run even thinner if the situation lasts into April.

“They really depend on that income,” Wired Cafe co-owner Shanna Hill said. “And it keeps the community going.”

Wired will be open this week. Whether it operates through the shutdown will depend on the numbers.

“We will see how this goes,” Hill said. “We will then decide if economically it makes sense for us.”
