Gov. Hogan announces updated safe capacity limits for outdoor sporting venues

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Governor Larry Hogan and Maryland Secretary of Health Robert Neall have announced updated safe capacity limits for outdoor sporting venues.

“With our key health metrics low and stable, we are taking steps to allow more spectators, including fans of the Baltimore Ravens and the Washington Football Team, to safely attend games in the stands,” said Governor Hogan. “It remains important to continue following all of the mitigation measures and public health protocols that keep us safe, including wearing masks and practicing physical distancing.”

The governor’s order limits spectators at outdoor sporting venues to 10% of total capacity, including at M&T Bank Stadium and FedEx Field. In addition, occupancy is limited to 10% for outdoor entertainment venues that have a total capacity greater than 2,500.

Face coverings are required at all outdoor sporting and entertainment venues. Venues must follow social distancing protocols, and social gatherings at the venue, such as tailgating, are prohibited.
