Wolf Administration to Increase Indoor and Outdoor Events and Gatherings Maximum Capacity on May 17

Starting next Monday, May 17th, event and gathering maximum occupancy limits will be increased to 50 percent for indoor and 75 percent for outdoor events and gatherings. The change was announced by the Wolf Administration today. This update will not prevent municipalities, school districts, restaurants and venues from continuing and implementing their own stricter mitigation efforts. Based on current CDC guidance, social distancing remains strongly recommended. Additionally, face coverings are still to be worn indoors and outdoors if you are away from your home.
Currently, maximum occupancy is 25 percent for indoor events and gatherings and 50 percent for outdoor events and gatherings, regardless of venue size and only if attendees and workers are able to comply with the 6-foot physical distancing requirement.
