29 Mar Philadelphia Indoor Dining to Remain at 25%
During today’s Press Conference, Commissioner Farley made the following announcement:
Changes to Safer at Home Restrictions: Due to concern about the rise in the number of cases and hospitalizations in Philadelphia, Health Commissioner Dr. Farley announced today that the city will not be adopting relaxed restrictions announced by Governor Wolf last week.
Indoor dining is to remain at 25%, unless you have submitted, and the city has approved an Enhanced Ventilation Standards for Indoor Dining and Application Form for Increased Dining Capacity (found HERE). Once approved, you can increase your indoor capacity to 50%.
March 23rd’s entire announcement can be found HERE.
Throughout the month of April, the Department of Public Health will review the local trends in cases, hospitalizations, and deaths to gauge if it is safe to further loosen restrictions and come closer in line with the State’s guidance. If that happens, the City will announce those changes prior to April 30, so businesses can plan for the updated guidance.
