Editor's note: This article will be updated as new information is received.

Plano has ordered restaurants to shut down their dine-in services, leaving dining establishments to lean on a combination of takeout, drive-thru and delivery for revenue.

Bars, clubs, gyms and movie theaters were ordered to close entirely as part of the city's emergency response to the coronavirus.

Still, some dining and shopping establishments in Plano are finding innovative ways to stay open while also attempting to slow the spread of the virus. Community Impact Newspaper is regularly contacting Plano businesses to learn more about how they are managing. The latest updates can be found below.
