With Idaho restaurants closed for dine-in guests at least until mid-May, delivery drivers are critical to keeping the industry afloat. So how have restaurants adapted to their new reality? 

Joining Idaho Matters live today is Mark Carnahan, a delivery driver with Uber Eats, and Don Day with BoiseDev who has been following Treasure Valley restaurants with an updated list of delivery options as dine-in options remain closed.

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
