Local governments must permit fairs and State Department of Health approval will be required for events with over 5,000 expected attendees.

Organizing officials must ensure that the total number of attendees is limited so that six feet of distance can be maintained between people who are not members of the same party, unless all attendees present proof of full vaccination status. Fairs and festivals may require masks, and per CDC guidance masks are required for unvaccinated attendees in certain settings, and indoors where vaccination status is unknown.
