PA Indoor Dining Ban and Snowstorm Putting Restaurants in Sticky Situation

Gov. Wolf’s ban on Indoor Dining and a recent snowstorm has put some restaurants into a sticky situation.

May PA businesses cannot provide the outdoor dining option due to snow accumulation and below freezing temperatures.

Gov. Wolf required all indoor dining to be shut down until January 4th and now many businesses have closed putting people out of jobs just before Christmas.

Wolf says he understands the frustration that this may have caused but insists that the order is necessary.

“It’s not that we have a good choice or, I think, an option here. If we really want to keep people from contracting that disease, we’ve got to try to reduce the chances that they’re going to get it together.”

We encourage you to get carry out from restaurants that may not be able to do outdoor dining.
