Many restaurants in Oak Ridge are changing hours or the types of services they offer to help try to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the new coronavirus.
Explore Oak Ridge, which helps promote tourism, is tracking some of the changes at restaurants and businesses.
Many restaurants are offering carry-out or curbside service or delivery service. Some are still offering dine-in service. Some are closing earlier than normal.
Some restaurants have closed their dining rooms for now.
To see a list of restaurant services, visit ExploreOakRidge.com or call (865) 483-1321.
Please note: Business operations can change rapidly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so the Explore Oak Ridge list may not always be current. You may try calling the restaurants you would like to visit to find out their current services.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
