Private Events

As you continue to find new ways to reimagine your businesses models, we have received many questions regarding private events and how space may be utilized in safe and compliant ways. As of August 11th, in Virginia, social gatherings should be limited to 50% occupancy of the event space or 250 participants, whichever is less. Limit the occupancy of spaces to ensure that six feet of physical distance can be maintained between all organizers, staff, volunteers, and attendees who are not members of the same household, and reconfigure seating areas to allow six feet of physical distance between individuals.
