The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has been publishing data on complaints and enforcement measures it has taken against restaurants that are in violation of the governor’s orders involving the mitigation of COVID-19. The order includes limits on indoor dining and between December 12th and January 4th prohibited it.
While looking for local data, we noticed Montgomery County was not included. We asked the Department of Agriculture about this and received the following response:
Montgomery County is among the six counties whose health departments license and inspect restaurants and enforce the PA Food Code. The department forwards complaints on Montgomery County businesses to the county.
We then asked Montgomery County for the information and received the following response:
Attached is a report from our Department of Health Environmental Health Services Office of establishments who have been verified as violating the Governor’s orders. They have been reported to the state and/or the liquor control board, but we are not aware of any action that has been taken to sanction or close them.
Below is the list. Locally, only Blackhorse Tavern in Plymouth Meeting was reported.
