Governor Wolf’s Targeted Mitigation Order

 

- Bucks County is now in the Green Phase of the Governor’s Reopening Plan. The Governor has recently issued an updated and targeted mitigation directive. The full directive can be found here: https://www.governor.pa.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/20200715-TWW-targeted-mitigation-order.pdf

 

The directive has tightened the restrictions on bars, restaurants, and large gatherings such as:

 

Bars and Restaurants

-        Prohibition from conducting operations unless the facility offers sit-down, dine-in meals or is serving take-out sales of alcoholic beverages. All service must be at a table or booth; bar service is prohibited.

-        Alcohol only can be served for on-premises consumption when in the same transaction as a meal.

-        Take-out sales of alcohol for the purposes of off-site consumption are permitted subject to any limitations or restrictions imposed by Pennsylvania law.

-        Non-bar seating in outdoor areas (i.e. tables or counter seats that do not line up to a bar or food service area) may be used for customer seating.

-        Social distancing, masking, and other mitigation measures must be employed to protect workers and patrons.

-        Occupancy is limited to 25 percent of stated fire-code maximum occupancy for indoor dining, or 25 persons for a discrete indoor event or gathering in a restaurant. The maximum occupancy limit includes staff.

Other events and gatherings

-        Indoor events and gatherings of more than 25 persons are prohibited.

-        Outdoor events and gatherings of more than 250 persons are prohibited.

-        The maximum occupancy limit includes staff.

Teleworking

-        Unless not possible, all businesses are required to conduct their operations in whole or in part remotely through individual teleworking of their employees in the jurisdiction or jurisdictions in which they do business.

-        Where telework is not possible, employees may conduct in-person business operations, provided that the businesses fully comply with all substantive aspects of the business safety order, the worker safety order, and the masking order.

Gyms and fitness facilities

-        All gyms and fitness facilities, while permitted to continue indoor operations, are directed to prioritize outdoor physical fitness activities. All activities must follow masking requirements as provided by the July 1 order, and must provide for social distancing requirements of persons being at least 6 feet apart, as well as being limited by any limitations related to gatherings.
