Interim Guidance on Large Gatherings

This bulletin is being sent to local health officers, tribal health directors, public health nurses and staff, and key DPH staff.

Interim guidance has been posted to the DHS COVID-19 Avoid Illness page regarding large gatherings under "Can I hold or should I go to a large gathering?". This includes any event in which large gatherings of people are in sustained, close contact, including, but not limited to, fairs, festivals, parades, and conferences.

At this time, DHS does not advise large gatherings, and there is no projected time frame available as to when this advisory would change.
