Here is a high-level glance at the latest restrictions that are now in place:
- Indoor gatherings are not allowed and outdoor gatherings must be limited to no more than 3 households (face coverings must be worn, physical distancing maintained, and the outdoor gathering should be two hours or less)
- Thanksgiving festivities should be held outdoors and include no more than three (3) households. Face coverings should be worn when not eating, physical distancing maintained, and the outdoor gathering should be two hours or less
- Retail operations may continue indoors with strict adherence to limited capacity of 25%.
- Restaurants may only operate outdoors or for takeout service only. A tent may be used for outdoor operations as long three sides remain fully open. A tent that offers a “roof” and one “wall” is still considered “outdoors.”
- Non-essential offices should close indoor operations, with employees working remotely where possible.
- Hotels, inns and other lodging may operate with strict adherence to state guidance.
- Wineries must operate outdoors only. Stand-alone tasting rooms that do not serve “sit down dine-in meals” must cease all indoor and outdoor operations.
- Breweries, brewpubs and bars may not operate indoors. If “sit down dine-in meals” are served in the same transaction in which alcohol is sold, then a brewery, brewpub or bar qualifies as a “dine-in restaurant” and can operate outdoors only.
- Gyms, fitness studios and dance studios may only operate outdoors.
- Family entertainment centers and movie theaters may only operate outdoors.
