Ask yourself if you really must meet in-person. If you are planning a gathering or event, you need to follow the rules for group sizes, keep physical distances of at least six feet, and restrictions on maximum occupancy.
If you are under the:
- Red phase, stay-at-home orders are in effect. For businesses allowed to operate in the red phase, you should limit groups. If you must meet for a planned gathering or a sudden event, you can have a maximum of 10 people.
- Yellow phase, small groups up to 25 people can meet.
- Green phase, effective 10/9/2020, maximum occupancy for indoor and outdoor events is determined using the maximum occupancy calculator. (See frequently asked questions.)
Keep in mind that there are many kinds of gathering and events. These could include meetings, trainings, concerts, fairs, festivals, sporting events, movies, or theater performances. Be careful to keep all the general health and safety rules in mind as you prepare for group activities.
These rules don’t apply to religious gatherings held by churches, synagogues, temples, mosques, or other places of worship. Though we do encourage religious institutions to follow mask wearing, physical distancing, and other general health and safety measures.
