It is an uncertain time for New Braunfels amidst the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, and our local businesses are definitely feeling the stress right now. Texas State Governor Abbot announced today that Texans are to avoid groups of 10 and temporarily closed bars, gyms and restaurants for dine-in.
While many local businesses began implementing in-store options with social distancing before this announcement, this order now requires all businesses to get creative or shut their doors. I put together this post in honor of our local businesses and to help my community have a one-stop-shop list of places to support.
Updated April 18 at 7:40pm.
With the fluidity of hourly and daily changes, I encourage you to check back here often and with individual businesses for any updates. Feel free to contact me directly with any updates.
