Now restaurants are preparing. In moderate, restaurants can open indoor dining capacity to 50% capacity.
They were only allowed 25% while in high.
Medford’s Cicily’s Pastaria and Grill, tells us with Father’s Day weekend happening at the same time, the phones are already ringing off the hook.
“We’ve been getting calls since Wednesday actually Tuesday since everybody knows that we are going to 50% capacity and trying to get reservations,” said Patrick Preyer, GM of the restaurant.
Preyer says the change also allows him to bring on more workers. The change to moderate doesn’t just help restaurants.
Starting Friday, movie theaters are allowed to raise their capacity from 10%to 20%.
