Reopening indoor dining at 25% capacity ‘just doesn’t work’: New Jersey Business & Industry Association president

As New York City restaurants gear up to reopen indoor dining at a quarter capacity, New Jersey Business & Industry Association President Michelle Siekerka said the coronavirus-induced limitations have proven to not be enough.

“It just doesn’t work,” she told Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto.” “Many restaurants remain closed because they didn’t have large capacity to begin with. And then complying with an executive order that limited them to 25% would be a money-losing proposition.”

Siekerka said New Jersey’s $18.2 billion restaurant industry provides more than 228,000 jobs. But only 23% of employees out of the 87% laid off in March have returned to work, which she pinned as a “huge struggle” for the industry.

The effects here are on the shore 25% some 50% with space capability still hurts. Vacation season is the next 6-7 months will be very interesting for sustainment or final closure.

Gonna be a very very long off season.
