If you’re a bride or groom looking to get married this summer, we’re sure you don’t need us to tell you that there’s officially nothing (pandemic-related, anyway!) holding you back. But just in case you want to double check recent developments, here’s a breakdown:
- Catered events are permitted to take place without capacity restrictions.
- Indoor and outdoor venues of assembly, such as convention centers, concert halls, performance venues, and theaters may operate without restrictions.
- Standing bar service is permitted both indoors and outdoors.
- Indoor and outdoor dance floors are permitted to open without restrictions.
- Event attendees who are not fully vaccinated must follow current masking and social distancing policies. Guests who are not fully vaccinated should wear a mask indoors or within three feet of other guests outdoors. If fully vaccinated, a mask is not necessary.
As of May 19, 2021, all rules for reopening are lifted, with the exception of certain guidelines for the wearing of face masks: Face masks are no longer required outdoors, while unvaccinated individuals are still required to wear a mask indoors.
As of May 29, 2021, all remaining COVID-19 restrictions will be lifted, including gathering limits. Non-vaccinated individuals are advised to continue wearing face masks and to continue distancing in most settings. The advisory also recommends fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear a face covering or social distance indoors or outdoors except for in certain situations.
