In a time of crisis, Hot Springs Villagers have always been known to step up and lend a helping hand. Things are no different in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic.

HSV Restaunteers have had to make big changes. Some restaurants are offering take-out service only, while others have temporarily shuttered their doors.

Restaurants, in general, are suffering from a severe decrease in business because of COVID-19. This affects not only the owners but their employees, as well. Several HSV restaurants are offering promotions in order to help their employees through this time of crisis.
