States Closed for Dining-In & Alcohol Service

However, with a rise in cases still ongoing, states are cracking down on the spread by closing businesses and social gathering places. Winter is not the only freeze we will see this 2020. Additionally, the close on businesses has also preceded a mandatory curfew for some states.
