Organized public events and social gatherings
Events and gatherings
Indoor organized public events and social gatherings are not allowed, except with members of the same household (the people you live with).
Individuals who live alone and single parents may consider having exclusive, close contact with another household to help reduce the negative impacts of social isolation.
Outdoor organized public events and social gatherings must comply with public health advice on physical distancing and have no more than 5 people.
