What Green Phase Means

Look for your favorite restaurants and bars to reopen to in-person dining, although with health precautions still in place such as reduced capacities and social distancing. Additionally, hair salons and barbershops can reopen for appointments. Gyms, health & wellness facilities, and spas are also allowed to operate at a 50% capacity.

Working from home is still strongly encouraged for the time being, and Pittsburghers are encouraged to continue to remain vigilant, wear masks when out and about, and practice social distancing when possible.
