Restaurants in Chicago are preparing for limited indoor dining starting Friday as concern about a second shut down in other states is growing, along with a reported spike in coronavirus cases.

Several states are reportedly showing signs of becoming hot spots for the virus. The governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut jointly announced a travel advisory that requires a 14-day quarantine for those traveling from nine states with “significant community spread,” a list that as of Wednesday included Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, Utah and Texas.

In California and Texas, the governors reportedly hinted of a retrenchment of reopening plans, threatening to take action against restaurants not willing to follow safety protocols.
