It saddens us to share the news that Monkey’s Tail will be closed until further notice. This morning we learned one of our employees tested positive for Covid-19. The employee had previously found out a friend had the virus and proactively got tested before returning to work. We have made the decision to close so all of our employees can get tested properly, and our establishment is currently being deep cleaned and disinfected within the CDC/EPA guidelines. The health and safety of our staff and customers remain our top priority. Once employees’ tests come back negative, we will resume business. Stayed tuned for updates on our social media pages. Bear with us as we all do our part to help slow the spread. -The Monkey’s Tail Team

The spread of COVID-19 has had a major impact on restaurants and bars across Houston. To our knowledge, the following restaurants either previously temporarily closed or are currently closed—at least for dine-in service—as a response to the pandemic. 

Not every restaurant has closed because of a positive COVID-19 test; some establishments paused service temporarily either to test all employees and ensure safety or to wait out the pandemic further. The reason an establishment stopped service is listed and, whenever possible, the amount of time a restaurant or bar was closed is also noted.

This is a progressive list that we'll be updating frequently.
