Because of COVID-19, what are the rules for holding indoor meetings?
Managing capacity during this pandemic is critical to managing its spread. When considering meeting indoors please consider: the place, the space the people, and time. In evaluating the space and place you will need to consider capacity or the number of people you can host at the facility. To do so use the following calculation to determine maximum capacity:
- Indoor events in venues may operate at 50 percent of their normal operating seating capacity
- Maximum number between youth, adult leaders, volunteers, and visitors cannot exceed 80 participants
If the facility being used can accommodate greater than 80 participants after the calculation in item a above is performed, a “Request for Participant Capacity Variance” may be requested, if needed. The form to be completed can be found at:
