Gov. Wolf vetoes bill to relax restrictions on bars

The bill would have allowed people to drink at a bar without ordering food and to operate at 50 percent capacity or higher.

HARRISBURG, Pa. — Governor Wolf has vetoed another bill that would have relaxed COVID-19 restrictions.

House Bill 25-13 would have allowed people to drink at a bar without ordering food.

It would also permit bars and restaurants to operate at 50 percent capacity or higher if they meet federal standards for social distancing.

Governor Wolf says he vetoed the bill because he believes it could cause new outbreaks of COVID-19.
