Some of us wasted no time savoring the sweetness of being green in Delaware County, reports Jan Carabeo for Philadelphia.cbslocal.com.
After three months without a sit down restaurant, customers were happy to see the doors open again early Friday morning at the Manoa Diner in the Manoa Shopping Center.
“We’re excited to be back. It’s a little weird with the mask and everything, but we’re managing,” customer Vicki Difederico of Drexel Hill said.
Difederico had the honor of being the first to have a seat at the Havertown eatery. It kick started a Friday ritual the pandemic put on hiatus.
“It was so nice to see everybody. It’s been a while,” she said.
The green phase means restaurants in Pennsylvania can allow indoor dining up to 50 percent capacity. Businesses must also follow health safety guidelines.
Tomi Joshuasville of Upper Darby has a ritual of his own he can’t wait to start again—visiting his gym.
“A very long three months. I have a little weight on me. I can’t wait for the gym to be open,” Joshuasville said.
Gyms are open again at 50 percent capacity. So are salons, by appointment only.
You’ll still need to wear a mask to get in, though.
