Every July since 2005, Chick-fil-A has hosted a Cow Appreciation Day during which guests are encouraged to dress up as cows in exchange for free food. This year, the tradition is being postponed due to safety concerns related to COVID-19, but the fast food chain still wants fans to celebrate at home.

Although some restaurants are opening up dining rooms under strict new guidelines for social distancing and minimized person-to-person contact, Chick-fil-A is not opening its dining rooms just yet. You can still order for curbside pickup or at the drive-thru window in the meantime.

The decision to postpone Cow Appreciation Day is to ensure the health and safety of employees as well as customers. In a statement on the Chick-fil-A website, the chain said it still wants fans to honor the day at home.

"We made this decision with the communities we serve in mind, keeping Safe Service as our highest priority at this time. Until we can gather again in person and celebrate our Cows, we have created a few fun ways to keep the spirit of Cow Appreciation Day alive this summer," the site statement reads.

To do so, Chick-fil-A has curated a Pinterest board of printable activities like bingo, connect the dots, and more. The Chick-fil-A website confirms that there will be a Cow Appreciation Day when it's safe to do so, and all COVID-19 related announcements will be published on the site.
