Loudoun County entered Phase One of the Forward Virginia plan on Friday, May 29. During this initial stage of recovery, non-essential retail businesses and restaurants can welcome customers at 50% of their regular occupancy limit.

You may have noticed new patio dining in front of your favorite eateries, due to the current requirements to serve food through takeout, delivery or outdoor seating only. Loudoun food and beverage establishments have adapted to social distancing and updated health protocols to ensure customers enjoy a safe experience. See a list of businesses that have signed the #LoudounIsReady pledge.

Not everyone is ready to dine out, and Loudoun businesses have created plenty of innovative alternatives to consider.

Woofie’s has added concierge services to its typical offerings of pet sitting, grooming, and dog walking. 100% of fees go directly to the employees delivering groceries and running errands for clients.

Another option is Meatheads Grocery Delivery Service. This team will shop for everything on your list, and then thoroughly disinfect each item before dropping them off in sanitized boxes at your front door.

Focused on buying local? Order your meat, eggs, dairy, produce, wine, beer, and more from the Loudoun Made, Loudoun Grown Marketplace. This virtual farmers market facilitates payments that go directly to the vendors, and you’re able to select the pickup or delivery options that work best for you.

Ashburn’s Cheers Sports launched the Community Tee Project, with all proceeds from its newly-designed Loudoun Hunger Relief t-shirt going to support the nonprofit known for ensuring that Loudoun residents and families have access to fresh groceries.
