Performing Arts Order Coming

Those whose “sport” is the performing arts have been waiting for this.

As promised, the governor will be issuing an order allowing indoor performing arts venues to reopen, with the typical precautions.

The distancing requirements are similar to those for indoor sports, with theatres at 15-percent of capacity, but with no more than 300 total spectators.

No word on when that order will take effect.
