On Tuesday, March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds ordered all bars and restaurants close or move to carry-out or delivery only to prevent the gathering of more than 10 people at once to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the state. Many Hardin County area restaurants shifted to operations that comply with that order.

On April 27 Reynolds announced she was relaxing some of the restrictions, allowing restaurants to open at 50 percent capacity in 77 Iowa counties on May 1. Some Hardin County area restaurants are choosing to continue with their carry-out only plans, but others are opening to dining in. The guide below lists hours and instructions for ordering and dining at area restaurants.
