• The state allowed restaurants to let customers dine in again “with extreme precaution” starting May 1.
  • Although in-person dining will be allowed as long as social distancing is maintained and the health of employees is monitored, the state still says takeout and delivery are preferable. Restaurants must operate at 50 percent capacity so long as masks are worn and hand sanitizer is used before each trip to a self-service line; tables must be six feet apart; 10-person party limit.
  • Restaurants must also sanitize the utensils every 30 minutes and individually hand out the needed tools for the line.
  • As of Aug. 6, the state allowed for local authorities to determine whether they want to mandate masks.
