As I was driving around South Jersey this weekend, restaurants with outdoor seating in Collingswood and Haddonfield were packed.

I also saw a few restaurants in Maple Shade and Medford that were utilizing existing outdoor spaces, while others had placed tables under tents or in parking lots.

Then, earlier today, NJ Governor Phil Murphy announced that indoor dining would be allowed in the state starting July 2nd.

Meanwhile, Bucks County will enter into its Green Phase of re-opening on Friday. That means restaurants will be able to open at 50% capacity.



So as more of us head to restaurants, the website eatthisnotthat.com has posted a list of mistakes that you should avoid when eating out.

Eatthisnotthat.com says to avoid getting germs on your face mask, you should not place it on your table.

In addition, eatthisnorthat.com suggests that you should make sure to wash your hands after using a menu, paying your bill, or touching any other items that may also have been touched by other people.

If you have an option of sitting indoors or out, eatthisnotthat.com says that "outdoors" is the better choice. (And if you sit indoors, eatthisnotthat.com suggests you avoid sitting near an air conditioner).
