1/4/21 Update: The limited-time mitigation orders issued on December 12 expired on January 4, 2021. Mitigation efforts will revert to the earlier orders originally released on Nov. 23, 2020.
- In-person indoor dining is permitted at 25% or 50% for self-certified restaurants. This applies to businesses in the retail food services industry, including, but not limited to, bars, restaurants, breweries, wineries, distilleries, social clubs, and private catered events.
- On-site alcohol sales are permitted through 11:00 pm. No alcoholic beverages are allowed after midnight.
Update 9/21/20: Governor Wolf has announced that beginning on September 21, 2020, restaurants may increase indoor occupancy to 50% of capacity. Restaurants will commit to strictly complying with all public health safety guidelines and orders through an online self-certification process.
Restaurants that self-certify will appear in the Open & Certified Pennsylvania searchable online database of certified restaurants across the commonwealth. Consumers will be able to access this database helping consumers make more informed choices about the food establishments they are patronizing and instilling confidence that they can dine safely.
In addition, restaurants serving alcohol must end alcohol sales by 11 pm. Other targeted mitigation efforts put in place for bars and restaurants on July 16, 2020, remain in effect, including:

- 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.
