A report by Catherine Dunn stated on the Philadelphia Inquirer that Governor Tom Wolf (D-PA) has ordered bars and restaurants in five PA counties to close their dine-in facilities as of tonight. They will remain closed for the next 14 days.
Dunn's report stated:
Restaurants and bars in five Pennsylvania counties must close their dine-in facilities starting at 12:01 a.m. Monday, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf announced Sunday night.
The order applies to Allegheny, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties for the next 14 days.
Carry-out, delivery, and drive-through service can continue, the governor’s office said, but people can’t stay to eat or drink inside. Businesses could face enforcement actions if they don’t comply.
As coronavirus continues to spread “it is in the best interest of the public to encourage social distancing by closing restaurants and bars temporarily,” Wolf said in statement.
