GLENN COUNTY, Calif.-  Glenn County is feeling the impacts of the second shutdown more than any other county. The county is among several in the state facing new restrictions this week due to the coronavirus.

Jack Wasineous, owner of Berry Patch Restaurant, a popular restaurant and bar in Orland says it's difficult having to go through a second shutdown.

"Here we go again, more of the same, closing down, laying off employees, it's a very difficult thing," he said.

He says they have been following all guidelines since reopening but still have to close for indoor dining for a second time.

Right now, they are open for take-out and outdoor dining but he says he plans on shutting down for a few months while they figure out what comes next.

"It's no longer about profit, it's about survival," said Wasineous.

Wasineous says he has laid off most of his employees and is only operating with two staff members.

He tells Action News Now, while being closed they hope to rebrand and add a drive-thru to the restaurant. 

The restaurant will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. for take-out and outdoor dining through this week.
