The invisible killer known as COVID-19 made its presence known in Oklahoma on March 6. On March 18,  Oklahoma City restaurants were asked to close their dine-in areas and only do curbside pickups and to-go orders.

“If I had to rate the traffic of our business from one to a 10, it went down to a four and it was scary,” said Don Goyo, owner of Antojitos Mi Mexico restaurant at 1225 S.W. 59th St. in Oklahoma City.
