Public Health No Longer Certifying Event Plans; Organizers Should Still Follow Safety Measures

As more of the state reopens, Public Health will no longer certify private or public event plans. Event organizers and attendees should continue to follow the state’s industry guidance under the “Blueprint for a Safer Economy.”
