Earlier this week, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced the reopening of the state as many businesses have been shut down over the past month due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Today, businesses such as hair salons, barbershops, gyms, and bowling alleys will be open. On April 27, restaurants will be allowed to reopen for dine-in services and theaters may do the same.
Kemp’s decision has been met with a lot of backlash as many view that he doesn’t care about who contracts the virus. Early this morning, TMZ reported that Atlanta legend, 2 Chainz, would be reopening his restaurants, Escobar Restaurant and Tapas, on April 27 for dine-in service. They also added that co-owner, Snoop Dillard, would be making sure it’s a safe environment at both of the restaurant’s locations. This would including employees being tested for their temperatures, wearing gloves and masks, and using single-paper menus. Hookahs would return as well and the restaurants would be sanitized frequently. An employee who is showing COVID-19 symptoms would also be told to go home and quarantine for two weeks.
Now, it appears that Escobar will not be opening on April 27. According to CBS 46’s Shon Gables, 2 Chainz confirmed to her that it will “NOT be open for business.” He also added “Don’t yall believe TMZ.”
While many people are tired of staying in the house a lot and are going stir crazy, safety is definitely the priority. Like many people in Georgia, 2 Chainz believes that right now is too early to be opening business.
