Update to Business Capacity and Gathering Limits

March 22, 2021

- By The MAR Legal Team

Effective March 22, Massachusetts will move into Phase 4, Step 1 of the state’s reopening plan. This will permit large capacity sports and entertainment venues to operate at a strict 12% capacity limit after submitting a plan to the Department of Public Health. These venues include indoor and outdoor stadiums, arenas and ballparks. Also effective on March 22, gathering limits for event venues and in public settings will increase to 100 people indoors and 150 people outdoors.

For REALTORS® it is important to note that gatherings—including open houses– are still limited to 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors. Read here for more information.
