Are drive-in movies, drive-in religious services, or other gatherings of cars allowed?

Last Updated: 05/22/2020

Car gatherings, including drive-in movies, religious services, and drive-through farms or safaris do not violate the Governor's ban on gatherings.

Attendees must remain in their same car throughout the gathering, unless an occupant needs to get out of the vehicle for their health or safety or if an occupant needs to use the restroom.

If vehicles are closer than six feet apart, then all windows, sunroofs, or convertible tops must remain closed, unless the safety of the occupants is endangered or if an officer, public official or guard requires the vehicle to open.

Individuals organizing the gathering who are not in vehicles must follow social distancing and wear cloth face coverings. To the degree that a gathering requires pre-payment, or seeks donations of any kind, contactless options for pre-payment or donation, such as online or by telephone, must be offered wherever feasible.

All other gatherings must comply with the limits on gatherings:

Indoor gatherings must be limited to 10 people, and social distancing protocols are strongly recommended. When social distancing is not possible, individuals should wear a cloth face covering to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Outdoor gatherings must be limited to 25 people and social distancing must be practiced. For instance, organized gatherings must include clear demarcations for attendees – and individuals are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings. For more on mandatory requirements for outdoor gatherings, refer to the Governor's announcement.

In all other cases, residents should stay at home as much as possible.

If you must go outside, make sure to wear a face covering and practice social distancing whenever possible.
