County reverts to 1 per 1,000 square feet rule

The one person per 1,000 sq.ft. requirement is back in place. As we continue to understand the Governor’s Executive Order, it is clear that we can make this decision at the local level. Here is the amended language to Emergency Order 2020-12:

5. All non-medical and non-residential businesses and activities allowed under the Governor’s Orders shall limit occupancy by individuals, other than staff, to one per 1000 square feet of covered space as determined by the local authority. Additional customers may line up outside waiting for entry as well as customers lined up for payment. All efforts should be made to assist customers in maintaining 6 feet of separation to comply with CDC guidance. Pharmacy-only customers are permitted to be escorted to the pharmacy without waiting in line for entry to the grocery store This section applies to services in houses of worship, churches or synagogue.
