Outdoor Dining Returns to Oakland - Orion

Outdoor Dining Returns to Oakland

Oakland is beginning to open up new venues and we are excited to share the news.  Beginning June 19, the county health officer will relax current restrictions on outdoor dining, as well as indoor and outdoor retail, as part of Alameda County’s reopening plan, aligning with the guidance from the State of California.

A recent article covered the announcement.

Starting on Friday, indoor and outdoor retail, as well as outdoor dining, would be allowed at a reduced capacity to ensure physical distancing, although residents and businesses are still strongly urged to focus on pickup and delivery options to limit lines and crowd sizes. Restaurants will be expected to work with the county’s Department of Environmental Health and their respective cities on their outdoor operation plans.

Outdoor museums and outdoor fitness activities would also now be allowed starting on Friday.

That’s exciting news for those anxious to visit and support a favorite restaurant.  We’ve compiled a short list of local dining venues, most with outdoor dining options, that are looking forward to welcoming you this Friday and beyond.  Please check with the individual restaurant for details and confirmation.
