FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham License Commission, using the Governor’s orders and guidance, agreed to extend outdoor seating for the city’s restaurants for at least another 60 days at its meeting tonight.

The outdoor seating in the City of Framingham was set to expire on November 1.

After a 4-0 vote by the Commission tonight, October 5, the outdoor seating now expires 60 days following the expiration of the State of Emergency for the pandemic.

Framingham is currently a red community or a community at high-risk for the coronavirus.

Framingham has been a high-risk or red community since the end of August and continues to be a high-risk community into October.

Framingham is also one of six communities in the Commonwealth out of 351 receiving assistance from the state for help in stopping the spread of the virus.

Because of those two facts, the City’s Mayor gave an order for the City not to advance restaurant openings on October 5, like many other communities in the state.
