Governor Wolf imposes new restrictions in Pennsylvania as COVID-19 cases surge

15 Jul 2020 3:52 PM | Travis Oliver (Administrator)

6ABC News:  Gov. Tom Wolf has announced new statewide mitigation efforts as Pennsylvania reported about 1,000 new coronavirus infections.

Wolf says three catalysts have been linked to case increases: some Pennsylvanians ignoring the mask wearing requirements and social distancing when they're visiting bars and restaurants, out of state travel and a lack of national coordination.

To help bring down the cases, Wolf says bars and restaurants that allow indoor dining will only be able to seat up to 25% of their capacity. The previous restriction was set at 50% capacity.

Wolf says outdoor dining will not be affected.

On premises alcohol consumption will also be limited to service with meals, only cocktails to go and carry out beverages are allowed.

Wolf says telework must be implemented, whenever possible and that outdoor indoor gatherings will be limited to 25 people, and outdoor gatherings remain at a maximum of 250 people.
