Beshear sets date to reopen restaurants for dine-in service

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear has announced a plan to reopen Kentucky’s restaurants to limited dine-in service later this month. Beshear announced the next phase of business reopenings Thursday. The plan also includes movie theaters, fitness centers, child care centers, campgrounds and some youth sports. Under the plan, restaurants will reopen dining rooms starting May 22 at 33% capacity. Restaurants will be allowed to offer unlimited outdoor seating if they meet spacing guidelines. The governor says he hopes to gradually raise dine-in capacity inside restaurants. He referred to the plan as the “best compromise” to promote public health.
