Revised Health Order Permits Standing in Tasting Rooms

revised Public Health Order was posted this morning (effective yesterday) that fixes the language in the earlier order that prevented customers from standing in a tasting room. The new Order now clearly states that licencees who are manufacturers are not covered by the requirement that all customers must have assigned seats. As a result, customers may stand at a tasting bar in a winery or other manufacturer so long as they comply with the other distancing rules. This is obviously a welcome clarification for wineries during the busy tourist season.
