On Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2020, the Governor updated the State's Public Health Emergency Declaration, extending all in-place health mitigation efforts through Nov. 30, 2020.

The latest declaration also added more mitigation efforts, including:

  •  Requiring masks for employees and customers at businesses like salons, barbershops, massage therapy establishments, tattoo parlors, tanning facilities and other personal service businesses.
  • Requiring masks for those over age two at all indoor gatherings of 25 people or more and all outdoor events of 100 people or more, except when eating or drinking.
  • Groups of eight or more are prohibited at bars, restaurants, and any gathering of a social, community, recreational, leisure, or sporting nature unless the entire group is from the same household.
  • All employers should evaluate whether any additional employees can feasibly work remotely to a reasonable extent.

These new measures went into effect at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2020, and will continue until 11:59 p.m. Nov. 30, 2020.

Other mitigation steps to stop the spread include six feet of physical distancing between groups. And a group seated together must be limited to eight people unless the entire group is from the same household. In addition to these distancing and masking requirements, only two spectators are permitted for each youth athlete at an indoor youth sporting or recreational gathering.
