Explore York is going green! Green Phase in the Covid-19 reopening plan that is.

While being the green phase is exciting, it doesn’t mean everything is back to normal. Health officials are still encouraging everyone to use masks to protect not only ourselves but those around us when in public places. Many of our businesses will require customers and employees to wear masks.

Social distancing is still necessary as well. While many of our establishments are open for indoor dining, the capacities at these establishments will be reduced. Make sure to respect the six-foot bubble around people not in your group and try to limit the amount of time you spend at your table after you’ve finished your meal.

Outdoor recreation is still open and available for you to enjoy. Golf courses, state and county parks, and walking and biking trails continue to be free to use.

If you have questions about your favorite York County spots and how they are operating right now, check out their listings for individual guidance under the Covid-19 Amenities tab.

Here is what the green phase restrictions include:

Restaurants & Bars – Open at a reduced capacity. Employees must wear masks; diners are encouraged to wear masks when not at their table. Alcohol can only be served with a meal. Outdoor dining or take-out is encouraged. 

Spas & Salons – Open at 50% capacity by appointment only. Employees and clients should both wear masks.
