Under the order, effective Thursday at 8 a.m., indoor public gatherings of more than 25% of a room or building’s total occupancy are banned. That includes gatherings at stores, restaurants, bars or other businesses that allow members of the public to enter.

The order doesn’t shut down businesses or govern outdoor spaces controlled by businesses. It also doesn’t apply to schools, governmental spaces, offices, manufacturing plants and other facilities only accessible by employees, nor is it enforceable for any events where protected speech is occurring, such as indoor political rallies, protests or religious gatherings.
