Notably, the 13 criteria that restaurants will have to adhere to in order to reopen for dine-in service includes a stipulation that they “create a daily log of customers and maintain that daily log for 30 days, including telephone/email contact information, and time in.”

This is to aid in any contact tracing, should that become necessary.

Under other Phase 2 rules, hand sanitizer must be available to employees and customers, restaurant tables must be placed far enough apart that guests at one table can maintain a 6-foot distance from guests at another, it is “strongly suggested” that customers wear a cloth face covering any time they are not seated at the table, buffets and salad bars are not allowed, and menus and condiments must all be single-use. Bar seating is not permitted.

In addition, restaurants are required to screen employees for signs of COVID-19 at the start of every shift.
