The coronavirus has created turbulence in the city's dining scene. The city had not permitted customers to dine-in for months. Then, restaurants briefly got permission to serve meals to customers seated outdoors.

But the resurgence of the virus' outbreak put the city back on the state's monitoring list and forced the suspension of al fresco dining, indoor shopping and other types of activities.
