Additional Covid Restrictions Lifted Under New State Health Order

A new state health order will go into effect on Friday, March 5, 2021. This new order will rollback some restrictions on dining, entertainment, and gatherings. 

These changes include: 

  • Restaurants and bars may have 50% indoor dining capacity, up to 100 people. Tables must still be six feet apart, with a max of six people at a table. A curfew on indoor dining is still in effect, but this order bumps it back from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. 
  • Retail shops are allowed to operate at 50% indoor capacity, up from 30%. 
  • Indoor private residential gatherings are capped at 15 people from three separate households. Outdoor residential gatherings are allowed to have up to 50 people. 
  • Indoor gatherings involving people from different households are allowed to have up to 25 people. This likely means public events, like city council meetings, and small public gatherings can legally resume in-person. 
  • Outdoor gatherings can resume with up to 300 people. 
  • Venues like movie theaters, bowling alleys and other entertainment purveyors may also increase indoor capacity to 50%, up to 300 people.
  • Athletic stadiums and arenas that seat 10,000 people or fewer may allow up to 375 attendees. If the seating capacity is above 10,000, they can have 750 people. 
  • Casinos are allowed to function at 30% indoor capacity. 
  • Gyms are allowed to operate at 30% capacity, but workout machines must remain at least six feet apart.
