Lakeview Drive In on Lake Chelan will close over COVID-19 concerns


Chelan’s iconic Lakeview Drive In announced over the weekend that as of Tuesday they’ll be closing for at least the next few weeks over COVID-19 concerns.

In a letter to the community, the owners said the combination of a growing number of coronavirus cases in the county and a larger-than-usual number of tourists led them to the decision.

They emphasized there has not been an outbreak of COVID-19 at the restaurant.

One employee did test positive about a month ago and after a quarantine period was able to return to work.
