The state order allows take out and pick up delivery from food establishments. The San Miguel County Public Health Order issued earlier today closing restaurants for 48 hours remains in effect. When this order is lifted Wednesday at 3 pm, bars and other establishments referenced in the Governor’s order will remain closed. Restaurants will remain closed for dine-in services per the state order, but may offer take-out and delivery options.
