The number of individuals permitted at indoor meetings or gatherings, as well as other restrictions on the same, are subject to change as additional guidance emerges and regulatory and statutory action is taken.
Outdoor gatherings greater than 50 people are prohibited without special exception from the appropriate vice president and approved Event Health Safety Plan.
