WEST ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — People who work at a restaurant in Maryland say that a customer left a $2,020 tip for a waitress ahead of an order that will close indoor and outdoor dining.

The Capitol Gazette reported that the tip was left at a restaurant called Evelyn’s in West Annapolis on Saturday. The bill was for a total of $33.92.

Evelyn’s is in Anne Arundel County. It recently announced a four-week closure of indoor and outdoor dining to try to stop the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
