Several Cheney-area businesses are back open during Phase 2 of Washington’s four-phase reopening plan.
Phase 2 allows restaurants, hair/nail salons and retail stores to reopen with some restrictions. Restrictions include masks and heighten sanitary measures, as well as capacity limits and table limits for restaurants.
“We’re at 50% capacity, which for us is about 57 tables,” said Mike Lyon, owner of The Barrelhouse Pub and Pizza.
Restaurant tables can have no more than five patrons at them, another measure to encourage social distancing.
Lyon noted that even with the restrictions, customers seem happy to go out and support businesses.
“Everybody is excited to get back out,” said Lyon. “It just seems like so long since we’ve been able to.”
