Outdoor dining opens today as Long Island enters phase two

TOWN OF ISLIP, NY (OnSachem.com / OnTownMedia.com) — Nearly 50 restaurants in the Town of Islip have been granted temporary outdoor dining/tent permits in advance of today’s phase two reopening, town officials announced.

“Suffolk County leaders have been advocating for restaurants to have the ability to reopen outdoor dining. Given that the Town of Islip offers miles of waterfront restaurants, and that many of our inland restaurants offer dining alfresco, it is essential that these establishments have the opportunity to open their outdoor and waterfront spaces at the earliest and most prudent time,” said Town of Islip Supervisor Angie Carpenter.

The NYS requires outdoor tables to be spaced six feet apart, all staff to wear face coverings at all times, and customers to wear face coverings when not seated.

We must be mindful, and continue to maintain social distancing and wear a face covering to ensure that as we reopen, we continue to stop the spread of COVID-19.”
