ATLANTA, Ga. (CW69 News at 10) — Although Governor Brian Kemp announced restaurants can resume dine-in service effective April 27, countless of them are opting not to do so, amid health and safety concerns related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Managers at Verde Taqueria said their restaurant will continue to offer only takeout and curbside service for now and no dine-in service. CW69 caught up with them last month, as they delivered meals to healthcare workers.
