The Pennsylvania Restaurant and Lodging Association (PRLA) with support from the Pike County Chamber and the PMVB would like you to know the following:
The Wolf Administration’s latest broad-based approach has targeted the restaurant industry in a way that will do irreparable harm to many businesses who followed the rules and the jobs they provide. Please take the time to read and sign the PA Restaurant and Lodging Association’s petition supporting our restaurants.
On July 15, Gov. Wolf made a unilateral decision to issue mitigation tactics that specifically targeted the restaurant and hospitality industry, which lacked data to justify such drastic measures. Since the start of the pandemic the industry has had to make numerous sacrifices for the greater good and has done so with overwhelming compliance. Rather than stepping up enforcement in a meaningful way against bad operators, Gov. Wolf’s broad-based approach has targeted our industry in a way that will do irreparable harm to many businesses who followed the rules and the jobs they provide.
Reducing indoor dining capacity to 25% is essentially the same as eliminating it completely since there is no scenario where a restaurant can survive at that level of occupancy. Amplifying the industry’s frustration is the fact that requests for clarification have been slow to be fulfilled by the Wolf Administration.
Your local restaurant needs your support today! Restaurants are vital to our communities. Think back on how many times you went to a restaurant seeking comfort or to celebrate one of life’s milestones. Restaurants have always been there for you; will you sign this petition and be there for them today? Without your voice, many restaurants will not be able to survive this crisis.
Thank you for your continued local support.
