Restaurants Are restaurants allowed to continue in-person dining options? Outdoor dining is allowed and encouraged. Indoor dining is allowed at up to 50% of the restaurant’s seating capacity. All restaurants must continue to cease indoor and outdoor dining service at 10:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, after which only takeout and delivery are allowed. Indoor seating at restaurants is limited to one household. Page 4 of 7 Outdoors, restaurants may seat up to two households together, not to exceed a total of eight (8) people, provided that all members of the party wear masks when not eating or drinking and follow other public health protocols. How are restaurants expected to ensure party size is equal to a household? When taking a reservation or receiving a non-reserved party at the restaurant, the restaurant must ask whether the party to be seated consists of a single household, in accordance with the social gathering size. A restaurant must also post the one household rule prominently at its entrance and at its host/hostess desk or reception area. Restaurants are not to seat parties indoors unless they state they are from a single household. Are bars allowed to be open? Is alcohol service allowed? The bar area and any bar seating must be closed to customers at all times in every establishment. The bar area must be roped off or otherwise physically separated from the rest of the space in the establishment. Additionally, if the bar area is being used to prepare food or beverages for tables within the establishment, tables may not be placed within six (6) feet of any section of the physical bar/counter where personnel are working. Alcohol may still be served to patrons who are seated at tables (not in the bar area).
