Lynchburg & Central Virginia News

LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) – The owner of the Texas Inn has taken to social media pleading with customers to wear a mask and practice social distancing when coming into the restaurant.

In the full letter, found below, the owner says that on six occasions in six months, anonymous reports to the Virginia Department of Health from customers saying that COVID-19 restrictions are not being met.

This, according to the letter, has resulted in “a dozen follow-up health inspections.”

“I’m asking our customers, one last time, for a favor. I’m asking publicly. I don’t want to lose my business…and I definitely do not want to go to jail. Please, please, please wear a mask if you come down to eat at the T-Room. Please distance or get your food to go. We’ve done everything we’ve been asked to do, so I’m asking you for this one small favor.”
