Finally some happy news! New York City restaurants will be allowed to operate indoor dining at 50 percent capacity, following four weeks of at 35 percent capacity. It’s the lightest capacity restriction since the city first shut down dining rooms in March 2020. The rest of New York state restaurants will be limited to 75 percent capacity starting today, while Connecticut will lift all limits.
Make sure to support your local restaurants, as they’ve been struggling to keep their doors open during the pandemic, investing in screens and special filters to clean the air.

Tip: make sure to check if your restaurant will be open, as not all restaurants will be operating at 50 percent.
