On April 6, 2021, the Governor’s Executive Order 21-09shifted authority to each local health department to determine the overall size or percent capacity for social gatherings, events and extracurricular activities.  Based upon the overall spread of COVID-19 within our community, the Dubois County Health Department has decided to adopt the following recommendations;

  1. Capacity: overall capacity limits of each gathering, event, or extracurricular activity will be based upon the number of individuals the indoor/outdoor venue can accommodate while complying with social distancing requirements. Social distancing means maintaining at least six (6) feet of distance between individuals from different households.
  2. Social Distancing Measures: identify measures to ensure attendees engage in social distancing such as use of multiple entrances, designated seating, one-way flow of attendees, ground markings, distance between seating/tables, etc.
  3. Face Coverings: face coverings (masks) will be recommended for all those attending.
  4. Increased Sanitation: outline steps to ensure the event space is appropriately cleaned and sanitized, that high touch areas have increased cleaning, and that additional handwashing or hand sanitizing is available.
  5. Guest Information: provide information to guests reminding them to stay home if they are sick.
  6. Compliance: Providing event staff or volunteers who will be available to monitor and ensure compliance with these recommendations is highly encouraged.
