Best practices to safely open during the COVID-19 pandemic


  • Limit occupancy of spaces to ensure 6 feet minimum physical distance between attendees, staff, and organizers who are not members of the same household. 

  • Total number of persons may not exceed 30% of the allowable capacity or 250 patrons, whichever is less. 

  • Employees working in customer-facing areas must wear face coverings over their nose and mouth at all times.

  • Install visible markers for queue lines that separate people by six feet of physical distance. 


  • Eliminate shared objects or interactive exhibits to discourage congregating or high-touch areas. Consider replacing with physical distancing communication tools like static signs, audio, or video announcements.

  • Frequently contacted surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected during operation. Tabletops, chairs, and credit card/bill folders must be cleaned between patrons.

  • Create a guest flow plan of modified queue lines into, within, and out of the facility. Determine areas likely to become bottlenecks or pinch points and adjust guest flow accordingly.

  • Where possible, install sneeze guards in front of commonly used point-of-sale or guest service stations.

  • All facilities must comply with the Governor Executive Order No. 67: Guidelines for All Business Sectors and their sector-specific guidance.

  • Hand sanitizer or hand washing stations must be easily accessible for all.

  • Test your workforce for COVID-19 (strongly encouraged)

  • If any such business cannot adhere to these requirements, it must close.

  • All businesses must remain in compliance with all Federal and State regulations.
