(WKBN) – Starting Monday, restaurants in Pennsylvania can seat more customers indoors.

They will now be allowed to increase indoor occupancy to 50% and they won’t be able to sell alcohol past 10 p.m.

Restaurants that want to keep half capacity must go through a self-certification process. This means they will agree to follow safety guidelines.

Restaurants can access the self-certification form online.

There will soon be a database available for people to see which restaurants are certified.

In July, Gov. Tom Wolf reduced restaurant capacity to 25% in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
