HAMPTON ROADS, Va. (WAVY) — As cases continue to rise across the state, cities in Hampton Roads are still moving forward with Restaurant Week, and this year, it looks a little different with extra precautions in place.

Many of the cities that decided to continue the event are doing so not only to help boost the local economy but to allow the community a safe way to enjoy dining at locally-owned restaurants.

Due to COVID-19, many restaurants are having guests adhere to specific safety measures including wearing a mask and social distancing. For those not comfortable dining in, patrons can choose to order their food to-go.

Here’s what we know so far.
