*Gatherings update

*Effective Saturday, April 17, 2021, the limit for formal gatherings increased to 100 individuals. This limit applies to formal gatherings that are run by a recognized business/organization.

Informal gatherings (such as informal family/friend gatherings) in Alert Level 2 remain limited to only those in your Steady 20.

The 100 maximum applies to formal gatherings that are run by a recognized business/organization. This would include funerals, burials, weddings, and religious and cultural ceremonies and services. Large venues with normal operating capacities of 500 people or more may request approval to host larger gatherings by submitting a proposed operational plan to the Department of Digital Government and Service NL.

Larger venues with previously-approved operational plans may resume hosting larger gatherings in accordance with their plans, provided that they now follow the new mask requirements where individuals keep their mask on when seated and not eating.

Employers are encouraged to allow employees to work from home as much as possible. Maintaining work from home policies is one important way to help keep contacts low.

MNL encourages all municipalities to download the guidance document COVID-19 Alert Level System: Implications for Municipalities (updated March 2021) which outlines municipal operations in each Alert Level.

We will continue to update our COVID-19 website with information as it becomes available. If you have any questions or need assistance please email us at covid19@municipalnl.ca.
