Public health is lifting some of the lockdown restrictions imposed on Regina and area restaurants, after several weeks of being limited to delivery and take-out services only. 

Beginning May 17, all Regina restaurants and licensed establishments will be allowed to resume in-person dining services with the same limitations as the rest of the province. 

This means only allowing groups of four individuals at a table, maintaining a distance of at least two metres between tables with barriers or three metres without barriers, and keeping contact information of all patrons.

Public health also made updates to the restaurant guidelines on April 28 to address outdoor patios and decks in restaurants, which must maintain a distance of at least two metres between tables with or without barriers.

Alcohol limitations are still in place for all licensed establishments, with no alcohol sales permitted after 10 p.m.
