Governor Dan McKee will host a bill signing ceremony on Monday for legislation which will allow restaurants to continue to use COVID-19 modifications, including outdoor dining.

The legislation imposes a moratorium on the enforcement of any municipal ordinance or zoning requirement that penalizes owners for those modifications.

The moratorium will be effective until April 1, 2022.
