HARRISBURG – Legislation to loosen pandemic restrictions on PA restaurants and taverns is on its way to Gov. Tom Wolf, who has threatened to veto it. The state House approved House Bill 2513, which would permit restaurants and taverns to operate at 50% capacity, or more if they can meet state and federal social distancing standards or erect appropriate barriers. It would also end a requirement that customers buy food when they purchase alcohol and allow people to be served drinks at bars. The bill would also make it easier for restaurants to adapt adjacent outside areas to serve customers.
