Governor Dewine has revised the Safe at Home orders to allow wedding receptions of up to 300 people. Below are the requirements:

  1. Social distancing of tables – 6 feet apart
  2. No congregating at bar areas
  3. NO Dancing allowed
  4. Only 10 people at a table

Three out of 4 of these restrictions should be easy to comply with for catering and banquet hall facilities.

But the issue of NO dancing will be difficult to comply with in many instances. Some couples will eliminate a DJ if there is no dancing, but will need someone to do the announcements and handle the operation of the reception. Others will remove dance floors from the room if possible, while others will find other alternatives.
