Another way you can help restaurants during this period is by purchasing gift cards to support their teams and cash flow. Gift cards can be redeemed when the shutdown is lifted. Check with your favorite local restaurants to see if they are offering gift cards at this time.

Need to stock up on groceries at home? Don’t fret - supermarkets in and around the district are open for business! Please contact individual businesses to confirm hours of operations, as they may be modified temporarily. Check out the stores below to shop for food, beverages and home supplies:
