Restaurants on the Brayford Wharf in Lincoln have been forced to temporarily close their dining areas by the coronavirus outbreak.
Along with a number of other city centre closures, the area has become eerily quiet.
Zizzi, Prezzo and ASK Italian have shut doors to the restaurant seating areas until further notice.
Both will remain available for takeaway orders but won’t allow dine-in customers until the COVID-19 situation becomes clearer.
Lincoln ODEON Cinema announced on Wednesday, March 18 that it would be closing for the foreseeable future.
Harvester announced on Tuesday, March 17 that it would be staying open for business, but reiterated the importance of safety.
“We have been following the expert advice laid out by the government and public health officials on how businesses should prepare.”
Royal William IV is also understood to still be open to customers.
We couldn’t find any form of announcements from Samba Brazil, Nando’s or Prezzo.
High Street looking quiet too
Lincoln High Street is also falling victim to the self-isolation and social distancing saga.
HSBC on Lincoln High Street was closed on Thursday, March 19 “due to an unconfirmed case of coronavirus.”
It is expected to reopen on April 2.
Lloyds Bank will be altering their opening and closing times as a result of the new coronavirus guidelines, operating between 9am and 4:30pm.
Carluccio’s has also closed for the foreseeable future, following suit with other restaurant chains in the city.
