Governor lifts attendance limits

Sharon Drahn
Herald Editor

As of last Thursday, January 7, Governor Kim Reynolds lifted spectator limits for sporting and other recreational events. This negates the mandate of two spectators per high school athlete which was put in place in December.

However, spectators must continue to wear masks and maintain six feet between groupings. Spectators are also asked to sit in family units.

This mandate is in effect until February 6, 2021.

Masks or face coverings are still to be worn in indoor public spaces where those in attendance are unable to observe social distancing of at least six feet for 15 minutes or longer.

Bars and restaurants may continue to operate but must enforce social distancing and the wearing of masks when people are not seated.

Funerals, weddings and other similar events may also be held as long as masks are worn and social distancing is observed.
