The steady march of states loosening some of their COVID-related restrictions continued with Minnesota Governor Tim Walz signing an order to ease restriction on businesses and gatherings. Now, restaurants and bars there can offer indoor dining at 75 percent of capacity with parties limited to six people and on-site dining required to close at 11 PM. Likewise, over in Madison, Wisconsin, restaurants are allowed to open to 50% capacity while bars are capped at 325% capacity. And Wyoming officials have removed all restrictions on restaurants and bars as well as all limits on gatherings and the statewide mask mandate, but the state still recommends that masks be worn. Effective earlier this week, the state of Nevada began allowing restaurants and food establishments to serve patrons for indoor dining at up to 50% of the listed fire code capacity at any given time so long as they are in compliance with all other restaurant restrictions. Back in the east, indoor dining capacity in New Jersey will increase to 75% of capacity effective today, while beginning next Monday, outdoor gatherings of 50 people will be permitted in the District of Columbia and indoor dining will be allowed for the smaller of 25 percent of capacity or 250 people in DC. Washington Governor Jay Inslee announced that, effective March 22, 2021, the entire state of Washington will enter Phase 3 of its recovery plan, which includes allowing in-person attendance at sporting events and up to 50% capacity for all indoor spaces, restaurants included. And finally, Pennsylvania restaurants – with the exception of those in Philadelphia, still capped at 25% or 50% depending on ventilation – will increase to 75% of capacity.
