Maryland Continues Phase 2 Progress with Indoor Seating at Restaurants

Date: June 17, 2020

Fitness centers, malls, and arcades are allowed to reopen on June 19


Governor Hogan announced last week the latest step in the gradual reopening of Maryland’s economy.

As part of the announcement, restaurants are now allowed indoor dining at a 50% capacity as long as they follow strict public health requirements consistent with the CDC, FDA, and the National Restaurant Association. Those requirements include seating patrons at an appropriate distance with no more than six people at a table and ensuring staff wear masks or face coverings.

Beginning Friday, June 19 at 5pm gyms and other indoor fitness centers may reopen at 50% capacity with strict distancing and sanitizing measures. Casinos, arcades, and malls will also be allowed to reopen provided they follow safety protocols.

State Director of NFIB in Maryland, Mike O’Halloran said, “This is certainly a step in the right direction for Maryland’s economy, particularly given the fact the state could face a $1.1 billion tax revenue shortfall for the current fiscal year that ends this month. Small employers are anxious to get their workers rehired and their customers back.”
