Lisa Vanderpump has officially shut down her four restaurants in Los Angeles.
Following a California order banning all restaurants and bars from being open amid the growing concerns over coronavirus, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member and current Vanderpump Rules star announced on her restaurants’ Instagram pages that they have closed.
“Patrons, SUR will be closed until at least March 31st, 2020. Please stay safe and see you soon,” read a message shared by SUR Restaurant, where Pump Rules is based.
“In compliance with the Mayor and in the best interest of the community, we will be closed until at least March 31st. We will keep you updated on any and all changes as they become available. Thank you for your patience and cooperation,” read an additional statement shared with a photo of the restaurant’s interior.
“It saddens us to have to do this, but with the advisement of the government and local authorities, we have closed our restaurants until further notice,” the shared message read. “These are scary times right now, but nothing is more important than the health and safety of our employees and guests. We encourage everyone to social distance themselves, to allow our community to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and we hope everyone does their utmost to fight this. Together we will get through this and come out stronger on the other side. Keep following us for updates and we hope we can welcome you back again soon. Stay safe.”
Similar statements were also issued for her PUMP and Villa Blanca restaurants.
As for Lisa’s husband, Ken Todd, who is 74 years old and in the age group that is more vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus, he is rightfully taking precautions. He was spotted out by a fan wearing a face mask earlier this week as he patronized another restaurant in his local area. Below is the photo of Ken as shared by the Bravo Snark Side Instagram page.
There’s no word yet on when the restaurants will be reopening.
