From our friends at Capitol Buzz:
As more counties move into the “yellow” and “green” phases of the Wolf administration’s plan to reopen the Commonwealth, Gov. Tom Wolf announced on Wednesday updated guidelines for dining services and professional sports. The governor also provided additional information and elaborated on general guidelines for “green” phase counties, issuing an updated order for those municipalities moving in the “green” phase on Friday.
Gov. Wolf said beginning June 5, restaurants and other retail food businesses located in “yellow” phase counties will be allowed to provide outdoor dine-in services, in addition to the already approved take-out and delivery options. Those offering outside dining will need to obey certain requirements, including maximum occupancy limits, closing off indoor areas of the business to customers except for through-traffic, and mandating customers to be seated at tables in order to receive service. The guidelines also prohibit self-serve food and drink options, such as buffets and drink stations.
In addition, Gov. Wolf issued guidelines for Pennsylvania’s sports teams to resume practices and competitions within the Commonwealth. The new guidance will allow pro teams to resume activities in “yellow” and “green” phases of the governor’s reopening plan, but without spectators and fans attending the events.
