Restaurants prepare to switch to carryout, delivery service following Gov. Baker’s orders

Coronavirus Local Impact

EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – The owner of an Easthampton restaurant is doing his part to limit human contact during the coronavirus crisis.

Mitchell Gohn, who owns the Kisara Japanese & Korean Restaurant on Cottage Street, has turned his eatery into a take-out only restaurant.

He decided earlier this weekend because of the coronavirus concerns to cater only to customers willing to accept his pick up only decision.

Gohn told 22News all indications are that his clientele has no issue with the steps he’s taken.

“They were totally fine with that, they understood, they understood what’s going on and they thought it was a great idea,” said Gohn.

The Kisara restaurant owner said he’s prepared to continue the take-out only policy until it’s safe to allow customers back into the dining room.

On Sunday, Governor Charlie Baker ordered all dine-in restaurants to close for a month. However, take-away and delivery services won’t be affected by the rules, as well as grocery stores or pharmacies.
