On July 15th, Governor Tom Wolf signed an order further restricting the operations of bars and restaurants including limiting seating capacity to 25%. This statewide action was in response to increased COVID-19 case counts in a small number of counties. The restrictions further add to the challenges being faced by the restaurant industry. The Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association has created a petition asserting that this latest order is excessive and encouraging enforcement on businesses that do not comply with prior safety orders. The Chamber’s Board of Directors is supporting this position and encouraging individuals to express their support for the statewide restaurant industry.
