Results of closing restaurants and bars is different in Black neighborhoods

How would you feel if you went to bed last night to get ready for your early morning shift working at the breakfast diner and wake up to learn you are out of work for 2-weeks?


Pennsylvania’s governor, under the guidance of the Department of Health (DOH), using his authority under the state’s COVID-19 disaster declaration order, ordered all restaurants and bars to close their dine-in facilities at 12:01 AM on Monday, March 16 in Allegheny, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties for 14 days to help stop the spread of COVID-19.


Businesses that offer carry-out, delivery, and drive-through food and beverage service may continue to do so, but eating and drinking inside restaurants and bars is temporarily prohibited.
In a small city like Chester with so few sit down eateries and several bars, I gave a little thought to who the governor’s decision is going to affect.
