Due to the spread of the coronavirus, the government has decided to tighten the restrictions on public meetings, public events, and sports competitions from next Tuesday and to reduce the audience capacity at indoor events.
From 29 September, up to 750 people will be allowed to attend indoor public meetings, events, and sports competitions instead of the current 1,500. Event organisers must follow the 50% occupancy requirement and ensure that the participants comply with the distancing requirements, as well as ensure the availability of disinfectants and compliance with the disinfection requirements.
The lower maximum number of visitors also applies to conferences, theatre shows, concerts, cinema screenings, and other public events and meetings with stationary seating; therefore, the 50% occupancy limit does not apply.
Reducing the number of visitors to indoor public events is also supported by the Health Board and the scientific council of the government.
