Berkshire Restaurant Owners Have lots of Questions About Re-Opening
I can't wait to go out to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, but I guess I will have to wait a little longer.
Now that Gov. Charlie Baker released his four-phase plan for reopening the state’s economy, some Berkshire restaurant owners say they are no closer to understanding the way forward.
The Berkshire Eagle reports that the restaurant industry has lost more than 75 percent of its revenue since the COVID-19 pandemic caused them to close on-site dining operations two months ago and local owners are still waiting for some guidance.
One person heard from was Anthony Mazzeo, the owner of Mazzeo’s Ristorante in Pittsfield says to his understanding, there are no guidelines yet.
Something to look forward too, Gov. Baker said restaurants and hospitality venues are in the second phase. With each phase expected to last as long as three weeks, local restaurants could reopen with limited capacity by the middle of next month.
