Apparently there is light green and darker green assuming that dark green is fully open.

They take the masks off or push them down around their necks in order to do that.

And truth to tell, since they're outdoors, they probably don't need to wear one if they're with people they know given social distancing.

I don't think that's correct. The maps that the Inquirer relies on has two shades of green - dark green is "green" and light green is "turning green at a determined upcoming date." No restrictions is no color - meaning, back to what we were doing before the world almost ended.

Southeastern Pennsylvania appears to be following the same timetable, just a few weeks later.

The Southeast went yellow one week ago today. That would be three weeks and one day in yellow status if the 6/30 date proves correct.
Isn't Allegheny County second only to Philadelphia County re: population? But yeah, reopening all has to do with each county's specific progress toward meeting certain public health metrics. Southeast PA's denser population, along with its proximity/connectivity to NJ/NYC, surely made it more difficult to safely reopen than Western PA.

How can you keep mistakenly inferring this? "Nor will social distancing or masks go away," is obviously referring to more than just bars and restaurants. At these establishments, it will be that expected everyone other than seated guests wear a mask.

Is it just me or are there others out there that are not feeling all comfortable with eating at restaurants?

It seems unbelievable that all of a sudden, it's been determined that risks of spread don't involve community dining even if it's outside.

Am I missing something?

I think everyone’s comfort level and risk tolerance is different. I don’t think anyone is wrong for not feeling comfortable yet. PA has been more cautious than most states and this staged opening allows them to react if they see a surge.

Personally, I think it’s the appropriate time, given its been over three months to give consumers and businesses the choice to engage in voluntary transactions that they feel comfortable with.

The Center City District sent out an email questionnaire about this topic. How comfortable would people be about dining inside or out?

No way am I dining inside for a long time. Outside it would depend on how far apart tables are.

I ate out last Sunday and look forward to doing it again. Outdoors and social distanced. Not interested in indoor yet, even though Montco's new cases have been dropping steadily.

What I really want is to visit the dentist but that terrifies me with all the aerosols floating around.
