According to WKBW, outdoor dining can resume starting tomorrow, June 4th in Western New York, and the other six regions in New York State that have entered Phase 2 of reopening.

Outdoor tables, however, must be placed six feet apart.

Also, all staff must wear a face mask and customers must wear face coverings when not seated.

Indoor seating in restaurants and bars is still not allowed until the region hits Phase 3.

I have so many friends and family members who work at a local restaurant with outdoor seating and even though it's not exactly the same, it's a huge positive and a long time coming for them.
