Restaurant and tavern owners in Pennsylvania are not happy with Governor Tom Wolf and his coronavirus mandates, which limit the amount of customers the businesses can serve.
Now some of those owners in Allegheny County are fighting back with what they're referring to as a "Restaurant Revolution," starting on Friday.
Instead of only opening the restaurants at 25% capacity, which was ordered by the governor, the organizers plan to open to full capacity.
Fox News reports:
The group said it would otherwise adhere to recommendations set out by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, such as six feet of social distancing between patrons, the station reported.
Organizers said they held talks with the governor’s office in Harrisburg for about a month – but claim the governor ignored a recent deadline for getting back to them with a decision, KDKA reported.
Last month, Wolf announced a series of tougher restrictions in a bid to contain the spread of the virus, after state health officials reported an "unsettling" climb in new infections.
“If we don’t act now, medical experts are projecting that this new surge in cases could soon eclipse the peak in April,” Wolf tweeted, and his new mandates started July 16.
Today I’m announcing new statewide #COVID19 restrictions, effective 7/16:
🔹 All indoor dining: Reduced to 25% capacity
🔹 Bars: Open for sit-down meals at tables only, bar service prohibited
🔹 Telework: Mandated (if possible)
🔹 Gatherings: < 25 people indoor, < 250 outdoor

Local officials in Allegheny County are criticizing the business owners for their plan.
“The law is the law,” Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald said. “We can’t just have people breaking the law. The state has put these restrictions in place and we support their decision.” He added that the county's COVID-19 task force will continue to inspect businesses and issue citations to this who violate the orders.
Der. Debra Bogen, director of the county’s health department, told KDKA,“I would put out a plea: Please, please don’t do that. It is a critical time with schools and all of our college students returning to town over the next few weeks. It is our time to focus on the return to education.”
I would love to see more Americans and business owners stand up for their rights and livelihood. We can't let a tyrannical government ruin our way of life!

A Georgia clothing store lost customers and reputation after being slammed as "racist" regarding their new policy, which was shared on Facebook. The policy: they were waiving a fee for non-white customers.
How they thought it would be a good idea to charge, or not charge, people based solely on the color of their skin is beyond me.
