MarylandReporter.com spoke with Restaurant Association of Maryland President and CEO Marshall Weston on Monday to get an update on how that industry is faring in the face of ongoing COVID-19 restrictions which limit occupant capacity. Weston addressed topics such as the recent lifting of the statewide dining curfew, improving health metrics, the need for fiscal stimulus, and the future of the industry. Weston: I think that restauranteurs are optimistic with the reports in the media of more vaccines coming and more vaccinations actually happening. The weather certainly has not cooperated over the past several weeks. But when restaurants look ahead I think they are optimistic that more of the restrictions are going to be lifted and that they are going to have an opportunity to get on the road to recovery hopefully sometime this spring.
