Restaurants will finally be allowed to reopen for “limited” indoor dining. According to NYC, if COVID-19 positivity rates hit 2%, the City will immediately reassess.
The Following is some early guidance
- Maximum indoor capacity is 25%
- Space all tables 6 FT apart
- Conduct temperature checks at the front door
- Collect Test & Trace data from at least one member of each party
- Guests must wear masks at all times when not seated at the table
- Keep bar tops for seating closed, bars should only be used to prepare drinks
- Provide COVID-19 protections like PPE for employees
- Operate with enhanced air filtration, ventilation and purification standards
- Close at 12am
Restaurants will be subject to rigorous inspection protocols and strict occupancy limits. In addition, the public has been provided with a number to call or text and asked to make reports about violations.
