  • Limit party size in dining rooms to 10 people.
  • Limit party size in bar areas to 4 persons.
  • Require patrons in all areas to be seated.

Guidance for Safe Celebrations and Events updates clarify the current requirements and includes:

  • Dancing is not recommended at events and celebrations.
  • Require everyone to wear face coverings while dancing, if the event includes dancing.
  • Require social distancing between people from different households while dancing.

Review and follow the updated guidance

Review and follow the new requirements for party size in the Industry Guidance for Safely Reopening Restaurants and Bars.

Bar and restaurants that are open for regular food and beverage service may not allow customers to dance.

Bars and restaurants that host events and celebrations must follow the recommendations for dancing found in the Guidance for Safe Celebrations and Events. Only consider an in-person celebration or event if planners and participants can commit to social distancing by keeping at least 6 feet of space between people from different households at all times and wearing face coverings throughout the celebration or event. The guidance now clarifies that everyone must wear a face covering while dancing.
