Small Group Recreation Activities Guidelines

Recreational gatherings must not exceed more than 10 people. Guidelines also advise businesses to screen customers for illness before entering a facility. Temperature checks will be administered and any questions regarding symptoms may be asked. All customers wishing to visit a facility should cloth wear face coverings. The number of customers should not exceed 50% of the capacity while adhering to the limited number of persons per group (10 or less). Facilities will be adjusting equipment layout or restricting the access due to social distancing. Customers will be required to use only one piece of equipment and will need to clean any equipment used with provided disinfecting wipes. For proper ventilation, indoor businesses should keep doors and windows open when possible.
