Governor Wolf Vetoes Bill Allowing Restaurants to Operate at Full Capacity

Governor Wolf has vetoed a bill that would allow the state’s restaurants to open at full capacity, saying that Covid-19 cases have been rising. 

The bill was passed in the state’s Republican-led House on September 23rd and would have allowed restaurants, bars and clubs to return to full capacity at their own discretion. 

The bill would have called for continued social distancing and barrier use, but would have eliminated the requirement that a meal must be purchased to get an alcoholic beverage. 

Wolf said in his letter to state lawmakers that removing the meal requirement with alcohol “increases the likelihood of COVID-19 outbreaks.”
