Governor Lee's Economic Recovery Group issued new guidance Wednesday (5/20/2020) to allow large, non-contact attractions and venues to reopen May 22, which include concert and performance venues, amusement and water parks, auditoriums, theaters and dinner theaters, zoos, and large museums.

Strong measures to protect employees and customers are recommended, including screening of employees and customers, creating plans for managing guest flow, and limiting capacity to ensure separation between small groups.

Updated guidelines allow restaurants to increase capacity as long as social distancing protocols remain in place.

Restaurants should continue to space tables 6 feet apart, or install physical barriers where adequate separation isn't possible. Bars remain closed unless used for seated, in-restaurant dining where there is 6 feet of separation between customer groups.

Live music is permissible with appropriate precautions, which include maintaining at least 15 feet of separation between performers and audience in order to reduce potential exposure.
