Mask wearing

Guidelines & Protocols - By Island

While maintaining a physical distance of six feet and wearing a mask in public (while indoors or in large groups outdoors) are required statewide, each county dictates its own guidelines and protocols regarding the capacity of meetings, conventions and incentive groups. Current gathering size regulations are listed below along with links to individual county proclamations. Please notethe below guidelines apply to professionally organized receptions, meetings and other events at an official venue, and NOT social gatherings.


  • Hotels are quoting meeting capacity between 40 to 50% of meeting room occupancy. Contact the hotel to get their specific COVID-19 meeting occupancy guidelines.
  • Static events are allowed. Static events are those in which attendees reserve a seat, attend the seated event and then leave (i.e. seminars, business meetings). Capacity is determined by attendees being able to maintain six feet of physical distancing at all times.
