    ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration is refusing to give specific guidelines for when indoor dining can resume in New York City, leaving industry representatives and business owners frustrated by the lack of response. A rep for Cuomo spoke only in generalities Wednesday when asked what the plan was to help the city’s struggling dining industry get back inside during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic — such as a specific benchmark in the number of cases. “We are looking to see what’s happening in other states. We are looking at our own numbers and will see what’s going on in other states before we make any other decisions on other areas that have not been reopened yet,” Cuomo senior advisor...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — With COVID-19 cases increasing in Pennsylvania, especially in and around Philadelphia, city and state health officials are highlighting the mandate to wear face masks in public. There was even an apology to restaurants from the Philadelphia health commissioner. Philadelphia’s restaurants were caught off guard on Tuesday when the health commissioner announced that indoor dining restrictions would continue. He said Thursday that won’t happen again and also revealed the city is now keeping count on how many people are wearing masks. The Philadelphia Health Department, using security cameras at retail stores and SEPTA stations, is monitoring whether people are wearing masks. The current assessment is 76% are using face coverings. “Most residents are doing the right thing, but...
    Many of Hong Kong’s blue-collar workers are struggling to find a decent place to eat after the Beijing-controlled government imposed social distancing measures aimed at preventing a second wave of the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. A new ban on dining in came into effect on Wednesday, meaning workers are no longer allowed to eat their takeaway meals in restaurants. While this is not an issue for office workers who can still enjoy their lunch break in air-conditioned buildings, blue-collar workers are being deprived of a chance to cool off after hours of manual labor in the sweltering heat. On Wednesday, many construction workers were seen eating outside of restaurants or sidewalks, while others were seen scrambling for cover as heavy rain descended...
    Back in March, Steve Jackson, who owns the Country Family Restaurant in Kirtland, New Mexico, put a sign on his restaurant that read: “CLOSED you can thank CHINA!” The sign, clearly meant to signal that the coronavirus pandemic, which shut down businesses across the United States, came from China. The sign was shared on social media, leading to a backlash against Jackson and his restaurant for alleged bigotry. Jackson was accused of being a bigot and a few members of the Navajo Nation tried to start a boycott of his restaurant. Jackson told The Farmington Daily Times in March that the sign was misinterpreted. “I stuck up that little-bitty sign that explained my thoughts about the communist Chinese government and...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Citing mounting costs and having used up a federal assistance loan, the owners of San Francisco’s Tadich Grill have announced the historic restaurant will be closing its doors Friday night. Like hundreds of restaurants across the San Francisco Bay Area, Tadich’s owners attempted to hold on with a combination of takeout orders, a gofundme page and a Paycheck Protection Program loan from the federal government since indoor dining was shutdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The current surge in new cases have further delayed opening indoor dining as San Francisco city officials have paused the process of reopening businesses. “It’s been over four months since we were first ordered to close our doors...
    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A county in New Mexico's southeastern oil production region is backing a legal challenge against a statewide ban on indoor dining amid surging coronavirus infections across the state. Eddy County filed a legal brief with the New Mexico Supreme Court in solidarity with restaurants that say Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has overstepped her authority under a stay-at-home order that bans indoor dining. County officials say summer heat in southeastern New Mexico makes it especially difficult to operate a restaurant without indoor dining, putting an outsized strain on the area's economy. Lujan Grisham says restaurant service can be riskier than other business activity because face masks are removed when people eat. It was unclear when...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Restaurants in Philadelphia are facing yet another setback after city officials announced Tuesday afternoon that the city is delaying indoor dining until at least Sept. 1 due to a rise in COVID-19 cases. Butcher Bar in Rittenhouse Square is better equipped than most restaurants to deal with the disappointing news. Pre-pandemic, the meat-focused restaurant already had sidewalk dining and a full patio outback. “We’re really lucky,” said chef John Strain. “I feel bad for the restaurants that can’t accommodate outdoor seating at all.” The city initially planned to allow indoor dining on Aug. 1, but with COVID-19 cases on the rise, Philadelphia Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley announced that he is pushing back that date. “Indoor dining...
    You’ve got until Friday to order the Tadich Grill’s famous cioppino for takeout. With PPP loan monies gone and no additional government aid forthcoming, the owners of San Francisco’s oldest restaurant have announced that they will shutter the California Street institution until indoor dining resumes. During the four months of the COVID-19-forced closure, “We have been immensely grateful for the response of our loyal customers who have ordered takeout and nationwide delivery, purchased gift cards and merchandise online and donated through our Go Fund Me page to help us ride the wave as we chased the date for reopening,” they posted on the Tadich Facebook page. “As you’re aware, that date continued to change and today we have no visibility...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia health officials made a number of big announcements on Tuesday about COVID-19’s impact to the city. As the number of cases rise, Philadelphia has again delayed the resumption of indoor dining to at least Sept. 1, a change from the previous date of Aug. 1. Additionally, officials are not recommending gatherings of any size at this time. This comes as the Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley announced 142 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the citywide total to just under 30,000. Due to a recent increase in COVID-19 cases in a number states across the country, Philadelphia officials also advised residents not to travel from Philadelphia to 35 states, including Maryland.

    KIRKLAND, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico restaurant that sparked anger for erecting a sign that blamed China for the pandemic has had its food service permit suspended. The Farmington Daily Times reports the New Mexico Environment Department suspended the food service permit last week for the Country Family Restaurant after accusing the Kirtland, New Mexico, restaurant of violating statewide health orders. That order prohibits indoor dining and requires workers to wear masks. Country Family Restaurant owner Steve Jackson told The Daily Times the state has not shown any proof that indoor dining increases the spread of COVID-19. In March, Jackson generated anger for posting a sign blaming China for the coronavirus. “CLOSED you can thank CHINA!!!” the sign read...
    New coronavirus cases are hitting fresh highs in more than a dozen states as the head of the White House task force Dr Deborah Birx urged the regions with surging infections to close bars, cut back on indoor dining and mandate face masks.  There has now been more than 4.2 million infections recorded across the United States and nearly 147,000 Americans have died from COVID-19.  The number of cases in the current hard hit states of Texas, California, Arizona and Florida are now showing signs of plateauing after a month of record surges, health officials say.  But the number of infections are now spiking, based on a seven-day average, in more than a dozen states, including Oklahoma, Missouri, Mississippi, Louisiana, Montana,...
    GLENDALE (CBSLA) – In an effort to meet the needs of shoppers and give restaurant owners a boost, the Glendale Galleria has begun a unique new service: parking garage dining. A dining area set up in the parking garage of the Glendale Galleria. July 26, 2020. (CBSLA) Like all malls in Los Angeles County, the galleria’s indoor operations were closed earlier this month because of the coronavirus pandemic. So the Galleria got creative.

The tables are socially distanced, and some of them include grass turf. “It is kind of odd, but when it comes down to it, you just want...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa is reopening to the public Sunday. The Borgata is the last casino to reopen following the COVID-19 shutdown. It reopens to the public at 10 a.m. The casino hasn’t been open since mid-march, but with new safety protocols in place they say they are ready to welcome people back.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There’s been a major setback on the road to recovery for small businesses in Philadelphia. The city is likely postponing the reopening of indoor dining. For many restaurant owners, Aug. 1 was a date circled in red. It was expected businesses could allow restricted indoor dining on that date. But with increases in COVID-19 cases in Philadelphia, that likely won’t be happening. For Bobby Saritsoglou, opening his own restaurant — Stina — was always his dream. “It’s named after my wife, Christina,” he said. “We have really great pizza. We have a wood-burning oven.” ‘This Is Not Going To Be Florida’: Pennsylvania Health Officials Focused On Reversing Rising COVID-19 Cases In State The tiny 24-seat spot in...
    By LISA BAUMANN, Associated Press SEATTLE (AP) — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said Thursday he is tightening restrictions throughout the state in restaurants and bars, for weddings and funerals, and at gyms in a further effort to stem a surge in COVID-19 cases. “I care about businesses opening and people getting back to work, but public health and economic activity go hand in hand,” Inslee said. “Our suppression of this virus is not at the level it needs to be to continue allowing for more activity. If we let this virus get even more out of control, it will have devastating effects on our health and on our economy.” The rate of disease transmission has been increasing around the state...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Restrictions on indoor dining in Philadelphia will stay in place through at least the beginning of August. That is because the coronavirus continues to grow in the city and around the state. Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said Thursday, “I can guarantee you, this is not going to be Florida.” That has the state and city health officials focused on ways to reverse a concerning trend. Young people crowding into bars and restaurants continues to drive the increase in COVID-19 cases across Pennsylvania.

City officials on Wednesday announced the measures are scheduled to go into effect at 5 p.m. and will last at least two weeks. The city’s health department will monitor case counts, deaths and other metrics to determine whether to extend the measures beyond that period. “These decisions were not easy, but are rooted in current data and trends we’re seeing in COVID-19 cases in Baltimore City,” Dr. Letitia Dzirasa, the city’s health commissioner, said in a...

The new restrictions announced Wednesday by Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young will require eateries in the city close for at least two weeks starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, news outlets reported. Bars and restaurants will still be able to serve customers outdoors and offer other options including takeout and delivery, The Baltimore Sun reported.

    COCONUT GROVE (CBSMiami) – Fallout from the coronavirus pandemic continues to take its toll on small businesses in South Florida. A new report from Yelp, which provides reviews of businesses, says 2,991 businesses in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties closed between March 1st and July 10th.

    A bipartisan bill introduced in the Senate would reimburse New Jersey restaurants, bars and caterers for supplies purchased in anticipation of reopening their indoor dining rooms. The plans to reopen were halted by Gov. Phil Murphy just days before the target date of July 2. Murphy cited a resurgence in COVID-19 cases in other states that may have been sparked by indoor dining. “Many restaurant owners had already spent money they didn’t have, often on personal credit cards, to buy food, obtain PPE for staff, and renovate their dining rooms to serve customers safely," said Sen. Anthony Bucco, R-Morris/Somerset, who is sponsoring the bill along with Senate President Steve Sweeney, D-Gloucester/Salem/Cumberland and Sen. Vin Gopal, D-Monmouth. The...

    New York City entered Phase 4 of its’ coronavirus reopening plans on July 20. Phase 4 was supposed to include bars and restaurants, to the relief of the 25,000 restaurant owners in the city, but Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio said that indoor dining and bars would not be allowed to reopen. While the city has effectively flattened its curve, museums and indoor dining are not allowed, but zoos and botanical gardens are open. Outdoor dining is still allowed. Citing states like Texas and Florida, the government is concerned that bars and indoor dining will lead to a surge in cases. In those states, indoor dining led to the swift spread of the disease. Cuomo cited multiple cases...
    By MORGAN LEE, Associated Press SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham urged restaurants on Monday to abide by her administration's emergency health restrictions that prohibit indoor dining service, after a judge issued a temporary order that blocks the indoor dining ban. The state's ban on indoor restaurant dining was reinstated this month in response to surging coronavirus infections, and the governor petitioned the state Supreme Court on Monday to overrule the lower court and sustain her restrictions. A group of restaurant owners and the New Mexico Restaurant Association allege that indoor dining restrictions are unwarranted amid the pandemic and discriminatory because gyms, hair salons and churches continue to operate indoors. Lujan Grisham spokesman Tripp Stelnicki...
    Restaurants in Florida, Arizona and Texas were all allowed to offer indoor dining. Those states are also experiencing record high daily case counts of coronavirus. Getty Images Last month, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a rollback of operations state-wide at restaurants as well as bars, zoos, wineries, museums, card rooms, and movie theatres. “This is in every county in the state of California, not just those on the watch list,” he said. He said the coronavirus was spreading at an “alarming rate.” In addition, the shutdown also affects indoor operations of gyms, places of worship, offices for non-critical offices, hairdressers, beauty salons, indoor malls, and other places of businesses in 30 counties on California’s ”monitoring list,” and represent 80% in...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — While indoor dining in New York City remains on hold, Mayor Bill de Blasio says the Open Restaurants program will expand to 40 more streets, but some restaurant owners say the city isn’t doing enough to help them stay afloat. Outdoor dining is what restaurants are relying on to stay in business, so many were happy to hear the outdoor dining plan has been extended through October, but restaurant owners say the guidelines aren’t clear. Raffaello VanCouten says he followed the city’s guidelines closely when creating his outdoor dining set-up at Dolly’s Swing and Drive, but he says, “They’ve threatened us now three times in shutting us down.” VanCouten showed CBS2’s Jenna DeAngelis a “24-Hour Notice...
    New York City is set to take another tentative step forward Monday from the coronavirus shutdown, as officials say that zoos, gardens and outdoor film and television production will be allowed to reopen. However, city and state authorities have again nixed plans to expand the list of allowed indoor activities — like dining, museum visits and mall shopping — that have been connected to mass COVID-19 outbreaks in other states. “We’ve got to strike a balance and we’ve got time to look at the evidence, watch what’s happening around the country, watch what’s happening around the city and make further decisions on some of these pieces,” Mayor de Blasio said at his Friday press conference. Phase Four of the...
    By Hilary Russ and Lisa Baertlein (Reuters) - Perbacco, the upscale Italian restaurant in San Francisco's Financial District, had a new takeout menu and a skeleton crew to offer outside service as the coronavirus pandemic first forced cities and states to cancel indoor dining. But after coronavirus cases surged across California, San Francisco indefinitely postponed the re-opening of indoor dining at 50% capacity, just before Governor Gavin Newsom banned indoor restaurant dining across the entire state. The lingering uncertainty was the last straw for Perbacco co-owner Umberto Gibin. Takeout and outdoor dining have not been enough to offset costs. Come this Friday, he will shut everything down, with the hope that after Labor Day the city will allow indoor dining...
    Solve one problem, create another. Despite the ongoing ban, New Yorkers temporarily brought indoor dining back to Grand Central’s famed food hall — using the tables that officials installed to test new layouts aimed at discouraging homeless from gathering. Over the course of a half-hour Wednesday, a Post reporter and photographer observed a half-dozen people using the chair-less high-tops to chow down on fast food and sushi in the largely deserted terminal as MTA police officers stood nearby. Most of the diners left on their own accord after finishing their meals and only one person was asked by a cop to move on. One employee there said the table set-up doesn’t bother him and added that most people eat...

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico health officials on Tuesday reported an additional 227 COVID-19 cases, bringing the statewide total to more than 15,500 since the coronavirus outbreak began. The latest figures show Bernalillo County, which includes the state’s most populous metro area, added another 65 confirmed cases.

The number of cases in New Mexico and elsewhere is thought to be...
    Amid a continued surge in California’s COVID-19 cases, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Monday that the state is rolling back many of its reopening measures. Some changes — including the closure of indoor operations for restaurants, movie theaters, zoos and museums, along with all operations for bars — went into effect immediately across the entire state. But others apply only to the 32 counties on the governor’s growing “watch list” for troubling coronavirus trends. Counties that have been on the list for three consecutive days must also close all indoor operations at gyms, hair and nail salons, places of worship, indoor malls and non-essential offices. Seven of the nine Bay Area counties are currently on the governor’s watch list. For Contra...
    California Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday ordered the closure of indoor businesses across the state, including restaurants, bars, wineries, movie theaters, zoos and museums as coronavirus cases continue to surge. Newsom's announcement comes as California reported 8,460 new cases of COVID-19, according to July 11 data from the state's health department.

In those counties, gyms, places of worship, non-critical offices, personal care services, hair salons, barbershops and malls must...
    SONOMA (KPIX) — On Monday evening, the dining room at El Dorado Kitchen on the Sonoma Square was empty after being full over the weekend. The governor’s new statewide restrictions once again prohibit indoor dining and bars, wineries and other indoor businesses from operating amid a spike in coronavirus cases. The rule wipes out half of this hotel restaurant’s business and means there are fewer shifts to go around among servers. “Now that we’re backtracking again, it’s kind of difficult, we’re stuck between the right amount of shifts for everybody to make a decent wage and/or balance that with the bonus $600 from unemployment,” said El Dorado Kitchen manager Matt Jetson. The governor’s restrictions have dealt another economic and emotional...
    YUBA CITY (CBS13) — Coronavirus shut down the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds on March 16 and they have not been open since. Despite the venue’s slow summer, they’re doing what they can to make sure local businesses in their area stay on their feet. “This pandemic has provided the opportunity for the fairgrounds to serve the community in another way,” CEO Dave Dillabo said. Dillabo decided to donate all of the grounds’ outdoor picnic tables free of charge to local businesses. “If you can step up and provide a service to the community, there’s not a better time than to do it now,” he said. After the second round of shutdowns, indoor dining is once again off the table in all counties...

The Florida Republican instead blamed “people behaving like people,” explaining that “What happened, and is happening, is, people are going out -particularly younger people - and they’re getting together. They’re getting together in public spaces, but they’re getting together in each other’s homes.” The senator, who conceded that his observations were “anecdotal,” said those young people...
