July 29, 2020 - The Mills Administration announced an adjustment to the limit on large gatherings for outdoor activities from 50 to 100 people, effective August 1, 2020. Under the increase, however, no more than 5 people are allowed per 1,000 square feet in order to maintain appropriate physical distancing. The gathering limit for indoor activities remains unchanged at 50 people. The announcement follows the release of, but does not impact, an updated COVID-19 Prevention Checklist last Friday by the Department of Economic and Community Development for seated outdoor spectator events, such as professional sports or concerts. The updated checklist allows for up to four zones of 50 people in each zone. Zones must be separated with physical barriers to prevent intermingling between zones, have separate entrances and exits, bathrooms, and concessions.
