  • Bars and nightclubs that do not serve food will close through at least August 12.
  • Restaurants will operate at 50% indoor capacity, and all restaurants must close for in-person dining between midnight and 5 a.m. Outdoor seating remains preferred with social distancing in place.
  • Personal services such as tattoo parlors, spas and nail, and hair salons may operate by appointment only.
  • For K-12 schools, in-person instruction can not begin until August 5.
  • Gyms and fitness centers can operate at 25% capacity.
  • Entertainment, cultural and sports venues will be limited to 25% capacity. If 25% capacity means the event will exceed 250 people, the event organizer will need to obtain advanced approval from the Marion County Public Health Department.
