Taco Bell has been doing more to clean its restaurants, but King said additional action must be taken.
“As regions of the U.S. begin to mandate public closures and self-quarantine, we are equipping our restaurants to serve our guests via drive-thru and delivery only where necessary,” he wrote. “ Should we need to temporarily close our dining rooms, we would be limiting millions of guest interactions and further enabling social distancing.” (Read more from “Taco Bell Prepares to Go ‘Drive-Thru and Delivery Only’ Amid Coronavirus Outbreak” HERE)

The Shine Distillery and Grill in Portland, Ore., has started producing its own homemade hand sanitizer. According to a post on their Facebook page, bottles of the cleaning product are available for their customers.
On Facebook, the distillery posted, “House distilled hand cleaner made at Shine- stop by if you’re in need. We’re handing out free bottles while the supplies last!”
According to Fox 12 Oregon, the sanitizer is made from a product the distillery produces while making drinkable alcohol.
