COVINGTON, Ky. (WKRC) - Several Kentucky businesses will be allowed to reopen Monday and guidelines on group gatherings will change.

Groups of up to 50 people may start to gather on Monday. In accordance with state guidelines, groups must communicate to individuals to stay home if sick, stay at least six feet apart from people not in your household, wear a mask if you cannot practice social distancing, wash or sanitize hands frequently, screen and exclude people with a fever or COVID-19 symptoms and not share food, drinks or containers and utensils.

While the groups may be allowed to gather, the state is still recommending online gatherings, outdoor gatherings or smaller gatherings when possible.

Public pools are getting the green light to reopen. Capacity should be limited based on the size of the pool. You can also expect to see pool furniture six feet apart.

Pools will also be required to close saunas and steam rooms, waiting areas and must ensure that guests don’t congregate around the pool.

Restaurants can increase capacity to 50-percent Monday and bars will be permitted to reopen. The same social distancing guidelines apply.

Event venues will reopen Monday. This includes convention centers, hotel ballrooms and conference centers, music and concert halls, professional and amateur sporting and athletic stadiums and arenas, wedding venues, fairs, festivals and carnivals.

Capacity must be limited to 50-percent, assuming there is room for social distancing with that level of occupancy. Reservations and tickets should be sold online or by phone, as often as possible. Event venues are required to keep a record of attendees and their contact information to notify guests if the event is linked by contract tracing to a high risk of COVID-19 exposure.

Low touch, outdoor and indoor youth sports may resume competition with up to 50 fans. High touch, indoor and outdoor youth sports may resume practice without competition but players should be divided into groups of ten for practice.
