I’m having a private party in a rented public space. Do my guests need to wear masks?

If you’ve rented a place where the public usually has access, but can also be rented for a private event, then your guests should follow the same rules as restaurants:

  • Eating/drinking—no need to wear a mask
  • Up from the table—wear a mask

If your private event is happening in a space that is only open when rented by a group or an individual, then it’s not a public space, and guests don’t need to wear a mask.
