Some Restaurants Are Adding A "COVID-19" Surcharge

If you're like me then you probably rely on Taco Bell, Chick-fil-A, and a ton of other restaurants to fill in the void for when you don't want to cook, but you might want to check your receipt the next time you order out!

Over the weekend, several take-out customers shared their receipts that featured a "COVID-19 surcharge," which was only a few dollars, but they weren't told about until they paid for their food.

You can see some of the receipts below, which have really only been local restaurants who more likely need the extra income to keep their restaurant afloat.

Some restaurants have included the surcharge to help prevent raising menu prices, but ever since the post went viral the initial restaurant in question has received a lot of criticism.

Would you be okay with paying an extra "COVID-19" surcharge or pay more for the menu items you order?
