Face masks ‘touchy subject’ for local restaurants, but still required for employees under pandemic rules
Since restaurants began swinging open their dining room doors again three weeks ago under the state’s green reopening phase, the Allegheny County Health Department has received some 80 complaints from the public about restaurant workers not wearing face masks.
On Monday, county health inspectors cited the popular Italian restaurant Il Pizzaiolo in Mt. Lebanon because none of the workers there were wearing masks.
“Manager stated that employees were not wearing masks because they find them uncomfortable,” the inspection report said.
