Clay County Recovery Plan
We anticipate the transition into Phase 2 Step 2 to be announced sometime in June. Please be sure to familiarize yourself with this next step of recovery.
Reduce limitations for businesses and organizations, reintroduce limited mass gatherings
Step 2 continues the reopening of communities by relaxing the occupancy limitations and begins to resume mass gatherings on a limited basis. All interactions within the community are required to maintain physical distancing strategies. High risk individuals should continue to limit interactions to those that are considered vital.
Business/Organizations: current essential, non-retail, businesses and organizations will continue operations. For all other business and organizations, occupancy restrictions are relaxed to 50% of the entity’s authorized building/fire code occupancy. All businesses and organizations must continue to apply physical distancing strategies in all facilities. Face masks are to be used by employees. When possible, operations should be conducted remotely.
Events/Mass gatherings: Mass gatherings of less than 50 individuals in a location where physical interaction is possible, whether spontaneous or scheduled may resume. The limitation of 50 individuals pertains to all individuals at an event or location and cannot be increased by separating individuals into smaller groups at the location (e.g. different rooms or fields). All mass gatherings are required to apply physical distancing standards, and if physical distancing standards cannot be met, the gathering must be postponed or cancelled.
