Allegheny, Westmoreland bars and restaurants hit with covid mitigation violations | TribLIVE.com

Nearly 20 bars and restaurants in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties received violations from the state police last month for violating pandemic-related mitigation measures, records show.

For more than a year, bars and restaurants have faced some degree of restriction – measures meant to slow the spread of covid-19.

Many of those restrictions were loosened early this month, with prohibitions on bar seating and alcohol sales sans food being lifted along with the 11 p.m. alcohol curfew. Establishments that complete an online self-certification process can operate at 75% capacity; otherwise, the limit is 50%.
