Philadelphia will allow people to walk up to restaurants and food trucks and order food -- as long as fewer than 10 people are in line.

Dining inside the restaurants is still prohibited, for now.

And yes, you will have to wear a mask. In fact, Philadelphians should get used to that for the intermediate future, Philadelphia's health commissioner said Tuesday.

Still, in-person ordering is one step toward relaxing the stay-at-home order that has been in place for months in the city.

"This is what I would consider to be a first step toward a new normal here," said Dr. Thomas Farley, the city's health commissioner.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
