We are subject to continued risks and uncertainties as a result of the outbreak of, and local, state and federal governmental responses to, the Covid-19 pandemic. In the past, we experienced significant disruptions to our business as suggested and mandated social distancing and shelter-in-place orders led to the temporary closure of all of our restaurants. While restrictions on the type of permitted operating model and occupancy capacity may continue to change, all of our restaurants are operating with no indoor dining restrictions other than in New York City where customers are required to show proof of vaccination. We cannot predict how long the Covid-19 pandemic will have an impact our operating results and financial position.
