Current Indoor Gathering Restrictions
Under the current Executive Order, the number of people permitted at a practice or competition will be limited to 35% of the capacity of the room in which the event takes place, with such limit not to exceed 25 persons or be less than 10 persons. However, if the number of individuals who are necessary for the practice or competition, such as players, coaches and referees, is greater than 25 persons, the practice or competition may proceed as long as no individuals are present who are not necessary for the event. If this exception applies, the number of individuals at the event still may not exceed 35% of the capacity of the room or 150 persons, whichever is less.
