Amid the pandemic of the novel coronavirus, several Columbia businesses have made the decision to shut their doors for the safety of both their customers and their employees. However, closures don't mean that you can't support these businesses during this time of need; some places are still selling their products elsewhere, some are selling merchandise and some are selling gift cards, so check individual websites and social networks for options to help.
These are the businesses in Columbia that are temporarily closed mid the COVID-19 outbreak.

The taproom at Bur Oak is closed until further notice. Check local grocery and liquor stores to pick up some beer to take home.
