LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas will allow restaurants to reopen their dining rooms May 11 on a limited basis as the state begins lifting restrictions on businesses imposed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Gov. Asa Hutchinson on Wednesday said restaurants will be allowed to reopen but will be limited to 33% capacity and will face other restrictions. Restaurants have been limited to carryout, curbside and delivery since March 20. The announcement is the first in a series of decisions Hutchinson plans this week on whether businesses closed because of the virus can reopen.
