MASKS

Face coverings must be worn in public - both indoors and outdoors - whenever six feet of social distance cannot be maintained. Exceptions are made for children under two years of age and anyone whose health would be negatively impacted by wearing a face covering.

MUSIC

Live performances are permitted. There must be 14 feet of physical distance between the performer(s) and from tables and high-traffic areas. The distance can be reduced to six feet if a physical, non-porous barrier (Plexiglass) separates performers from each other, guests, and high traffic areas. No mingling or congregating is permitted, and guests must remain seated.

SEATING

Tables must be separated by at least eight feet from table edge to table edge, or to allow six feet spacing between seated guests at different tables. Tables must also be six feet away from areas with regular traffic (ie: routes to restrooms, entrances, and exits).

TENTS

Tents with open sides are considered outdoor events.

VENUES

Nearly all venues are permitted to open with restrictions in place. A stay-at-home advisory is in effect from 10pm-5am on weeknights. It will begin at 10:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays. All bars, restaurants, gyms, recreational facilities, and personal services must end service at 10pm on weeknights, 10:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Restaurants may stay open for takeout only.
