As I’m sure many fellow Nova Scotians know by now, the Premier and Dr. Strang announced fairly significant increases to gathering limits earlier this afternoon. The rundown:
- Up to 250 people can gather at OUTDOOR events, provided the event is hosted by a recognized business (eg a professionally managed wedding venue)
- INDOOR event venues can now hold up to 200 people OR 50% of their allowable capacity, whichever is less
- Gatherings not run by a business (eg a backyard wedding) are still limited to 50 people
This is obviously good news for couples holding out for summer 2020! The catch is that venues are still required to enforce physical distancing, which I think is kind of a bummer for weddings—not to mention impractical when you have hundreds of people gathering together. Anyone else have thoughts? Or is anyone reconsidering their plans in light of this news?!
