US.- Pennsylvania has announced the loosening of capacity restrictions for casinos and restaurants from April.

As Covid-19 cases decrease in the state and vaccination advances, capacity restrictions for casinos, restaurants, gyms, entertainment facilities, theatres, and malls will be increased to 75 per cent of occupancy. 

Indoor dining capacity will be increased for restaurants that can comply with all public health safety guidelines, including cleaning and mitigation protocols.

Governor Tom Wolf said: “Pennsylvanians have stepped up and done their part of help curb the spread of Covid-19. Our case counts continue to go down, hospitalizations are declining, and the percent positivity rate gets lower every week – all very positive signs! 

“The number of people getting vaccinated increases daily and we are seeing light at the end of the tunnel. It’s time to allow our restaurants, bars and other service businesses to get back to more normal operations.

“We’ve come so far and now is not the time to stop the safety measures we have in place to protect ourselves, our families and our communities.”

The governor warned that mask-wearing, social distancing, including six feet between diners, and business adherence to all safety orders is still imperative.
