Pennsylvania restaurants will soon be allowed to resume dine-in service

Pennsylvania restaurants will soon be allowed to resume dine-in service. Governor Tom Wolf released guidelines yesterday, May 27, for businesses in counties in the Yellow and Green phases of reopening. WLVR’s Tyler Pratt has a breakdown on what this may look like in the Lehigh Valley next week. 

Lehigh and Northampton Counties are expected to go Yellow on Friday, June 5. Restaurants in the yellow phase can offer outdoor seating. But with very limited occupancy and lots of spacing between tables. No bar seats. Customers won’t be allowed indoors, except to pass through. Self-service options like buffets and drink stations won’t be allowed. And menus can’t be reusable. Some restaurants have discussed using digital QR codes to access menus on your phone moving forward. 

Expect masks on all employees and customers will have to wear them, too. But they can take them off when they sit down at a table. 

In counties that go green, which is currently only slated in the northcentral and western parts of the state, indoor restaurant and bar activities will be able to resume. With six feet of spacing and even barriers between customers.
