PA Sec. Levine Bans Alcohol in Bars/Restaurants on Thanksgiving Eve; NJ Gov Murphy Restaurant Video
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA
started: 11/23/20 4:22 pm | updated: 11/23/20 4:22 pm
Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine announced several new restrictions on Monday afternoon, 11/23. The Wednesday night before Thanksgiving has traditionally been the biggest night of the year for bars as people return home and get together with friends and family. In order to discourage these gatherings, Levine has ordered all bars and restaurants in the state to stop serving alcohol at 5 p.m. Wednesday, 11/25 through 8 a.m. Thanksgiving morning. Even without this new restriction it would have been a much different Thanksgiving Eve. Typical bars are still closed completely and alcohol can only be served alongside a meal. Closing time is now also 10 p.m.

There are several other restrictions. Schools must sign an attestation form saying they are complying with updated protocols or move to fully remote learning. Telework is mandatory unless impossible. Online sales and curbside pickup for all shopping are encouraged. All indoor and outdoor events/ gatherings categories size limits will be reduced. Household gatherings with non-household members are advised against.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy addressed an incident during Monday afternoon's press conference, 11/23, that was caught on cell phone video and went viral overnight. It happened on Sunday evening, 11/22, outside of a restaurant in Red Bank, NJ. The governor was seated at an outside table with his wife and children eating dinner when he was approached by two women. One of the women was recording on her cell phone. They can be heard yelling and cursing at the governor and his family for not wearing masks and calling them obscene names. The family was outside, actively eating, and with members of their household apparently following protocols. Murphy did not say anything to the women on the video last night. On Monday he said, "It doesn't impact me at all, and I think I would say the same thing for my wife. But our kids are not part of that... The stress levels are overwhelming. And they're not unfounded. I don't condone out of bounds behavior, but I'm a big boy and think I speak for my wife. But let's leave my family out of this, number one. But number two, let's all keep each other in our prayers right now."
