Local Restaurant Takes the Lead

A restaurant in Cambria County is changing the way they do business because of the recent spike in Covid-19 cases in the county.

Tulunes Living the Dream Bar & Grill is stopping all dine-in services and will now only be offering take-out.

Gov. Wolf announced Monday, new restrictions could be coming to Pennsylvania to stop the spread of COVID-19. Nothing has been officially announced as of Wednesday, but Tulunes Living the Dream Bar & Grill in Cambria County is taking it upon themselves to make some changes.

“We want to make sure everyone is safe as far as their health. There are lot of outbreaks going on in Cambria County. So to stop that we are just going to go with the take-out, delivery and the curbside for as far as for the company and also for the people as well,” said kitchen manager, Jermaine Taylor.

Putting an end to dine-in, takes away the jobs of hostesses, waitresses and bartenders, like Kearstin LaRue. But LaRue remains optimistic about still being able to help with day-to-day operations.

“I usually answer the phones. I take over on that to make sure everything is organized,” said LaRue. “It will all work out for the simple fact that everyday everything is changing so hours were getting cut already. So, it’s not really going to make a difference, it’s just all about surviving,” she added.

Back in March, when shutdowns and restrictions first began, staff says they received a lot of community support. They’re hoping for that same kind of response.

“We already been shut down at one point in time as far as just take-out. It was awesome ya know as far as the community they showed so much support and in return we would like to give it back by shutting down again without no one telling us for their health for our health reasons and we still want to go for the take-out, and we are here for them,” said Taylor.
