PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - The State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement issues 10 warnings to Pittsburgh area businesses for failing to follow COVID-19 mitigation requirements and 1 local business received a notice of violation.

More than 1,100 businesses in the state were visited by officers between August 5 and 6.

Restaurants and bars with liquor licenses must follow these rules, among others, to remain in compliance:

  • Require all customers to wear masks while entering, exiting or otherwise traveling throughout the restaurant or retail food service business (face masks may be removed while seated). Further, employees are required to wear masks at all times.
  • Provide at least six feet between parties at tables or physical barriers between customers where booths are arranged back to back.
  • Ensure maximum occupancy limits for indoor and outdoor areas are posted and enforced.

Violations could lead to a citation. Continued violations may also result in the loss of the establishment's liquor license.
