Impact of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic on the restaurant industry in the United States

Signs on door of a Graeter's ice cream parlor during government-mandated closings The 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic impacted the US restaurant industry via government closures, resulting in layoffs of workers and loss of income for restaurants and owners and threatening the survival of independent restaurants as a category. Within a week after the first closures, industry groups representing independent restaurateurs were asking for immediate relief measures from local, state, and federal governments, saying that as many as 75% of independent restaurants could not survive closures of more than a few weeks. Restaurant closures started March 15 when Ohio Governor Mike DeWine ordered all bars and restaurants in the state to close their dining rooms and bars; within a week most other states followed suit. By March 23 industry experts were estimating nearly half of the industry's 15 million workers had been laid off. Insurers refused to cover the restaurants' financial losses via business interruption policies.

COVID Tracking Project

The COVID Tracking Project is a collaborative volunteer-run effort to track the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak in the United States. It maintains a regularly updated database of a variety of types of information related to the outbreak, including counts of the number of positive and negative test results obtained in each state.[1][2] It obtains its data from "state health departments, local news reports and live news conferences", according to the New York Times.[3] History In early March 2020, when two journalists, Robinson Meyer and Alexis Madrigal, started constructing a COVID-19 tracker for their investigation in the Atlantic. Around the same time, data scientist Jeff Hammerbacher was independently working on a similar tracking spreadsheet. The COVID Tracking Project was formed when these two projects merged into one on March 7, 2020.
