Indoor dining On Track To Begin July 6

By NYC Hospitality Alliance

As New York City moves closer towards Phase III reopening, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced in today's press briefing that indoor dining is on track to reopen at 50% capacity starting July 6. 

At this time, we advise you to view the State of New York Phase 3 Reopening Requirements for restaurants and food service employers and employees. The requirements include:
  • Limit indoor capacity to no more than 50% of maximum occupancy, exclusive of employees.  
  • All indoor and outdoor tables with seating for customers must be separated by a minimum of 6 ft. in all directions. Wherever distancing is not feasible between tables, physical barriers must be enacted between such tables. Barriers must be at least 5 ft. in height and not block emergency and/or fire exits. 
  • Regardless of physical distance, employees must wear an acceptable face covering at all times.
  • Use pre-packaged silverware or pre-rolled silverware. Silverware must be pre-rolled while wearing masks and gloves.
Mayor de Blasio plans to discuss New York City-specific details tomorrow and we will be sure to update you as additional information becomes available.
