W.Va. governor returns bars, restaurants to full seating capacity

March 5th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Restaurants and bars in West Virginia can begin seating at 100 percent capacity starting Saturday. The easing of that COVID-19 restriction was one of several moves Gov. Jim Justice made Friday during a pandemic briefing. Capacity restrictions on small businesses and retail stores have all been lifted, he said, but the mask mandate remains. Justice also increased social gathering limits to 100 people from 75, and opened gyms, fitness centers and museums to 100 percent capacity as long as social distancing can be maintained.
