A Red Deer diner that planned to stay open despite government restrictions is now looking to offer outdoor dining instead, after being told continuing to offer dine-in services could lead to their business licence and food handling permits being revoked.
A post on the Mom’s Diner Facebook page states it is taking time to get outdoor tables for patio dining and heaters.
So we just got hit with this possibly facing business licence revoked as well as food handling permits which would shut…
“We just booked a 10-by-20 party tent for a month,” a comment from the Mom’s Diner Facebook page said.
The ’50s-style diner, located in West Park, posted a screenshot of a notice they received from Alberta Health Services. The notice states any bar, restaurant or lounge choosing to offer indoor dine-in services may face enforcement actions.
The restrictions only allow these establishments to offer takeout, delivery and outdoor patio dining at this time.
