Currently, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, The Waffle House Index has gone to red. While most of its restaurants remain open, the number of fully closed locations has been rising day by day. To keep your eye on the Index, you can check in with Waffle House on Facebook and Twitter, where daily updates are being posted. While everyone understands how important Waffle House is to tens of millions of hungry Americans, everyone also needs to understand how important it is right now to stay home. If you cannot survive without Waffle House, please remember to do everything you can to keep its employees safe and bring some cleaning supplies, because you’re going to need them after eating a box of chili-covered hash browns alone in your car.
