Governor Lamont Issues Executive Order Regarding Worship Gatherings

Coronavirus Resources and Information

Capacity Limits – Phase 3

Updated October 9, 2020

Yesterday Governor Lamont issued Executive Order No. 9F amending previous Executive Orders concerning limitations on religious gatherings as the State moves into phase three (3) of its reopening plan. Accordingly, the limitations for all religious, spiritual, and worship gatherings currently in effect are as follows:

“Effective on October 8, 2020, Executive Order No. 7TT, Section 2 is amended to provide that religious, spiritual, or worship gatherings, if held indoors, are limited to no more than 50 percent of the building’s capacity or a maximum of 200 people, whichever is lower, and such services, if held outdoors, are limited to the number of people that can be accommodated safely by the venue or location provided that all persons present wear masks, unless speaking from designated safe locations, and that a distance of 6 feet is maintained between all persons or groups not from the same household.”

Please note that unlike previous Executive Orders issued by the Governor, this order states that it will “take effect immediately and remain in effect until November 9, 2020.” We will inform you of any changes or subsequent Executive Orders on this topic as we receive notice of them.
