On September 25, Executive Order 2020-183 amending Michigan’s Safe Start Order 2020-176 and 2020-181 adjusted indoor and outdoor gathering limits in the state and regions 6&8
Summary of the Revised Permitted Social Gatherings
Consistent with the prior Safe Start Order, the Amended Safe Start Order expressly permits indoor social gatherings or indoor organized events of 10 or fewer people and outdoor social gatherings or outdoor organized events of 100 or fewer people. In addition, in all Regions, the following are now permitted:
- Non-residential indoor social gatherings and organized events with attendance of up to 20 people per 1,000 square feet or 20% of the fixed seating capacity, with a maximum of 500 people.
- Non-residential outdoor social gatherings and organized events are permitted to have up to 30 people per 1,000 square feet or 30% of the fixed seating capacity, with a maximum of 1,000 people.
In Regions 6 and 8 non-residential indoor venues may allow up to 25 people per 1,000 square feet or 25% of the fixed seating capacity.
All organizers and venues must ensure that the gathering or event complies with the above restrictions and that persons not part of the same household maintain six feet of distance from one another. The organizers and venues must design the gathering or event to encourage and maintain social distancing.
Masks are still required under Executive Order 2020-153 (Revised Mask Order).
These limitations do not apply to an incidental gathering of persons in a shared space, including an airport, bus station, factory floor, restaurant, shopping mall, public pool or workplace (although it does apply to social gatherings and organized events held in such places).
