San Luis Obispo County announced it will allow modified wedding ceremonies beginning June 19.

Weddings must follow the state's guidance for places of worship. Receptions and celebrations are still not allowed.

Ceremonies should be limited to 25% capacity or 100 people, whichever is fewer. Outdoor weddings should accommodate a minimum six feet between guests of different households.

The risk of COVID-19 spreading at events and gatherings increases as follows:

  • Lowest risk: Virtual-only activities, events, and gatherings
  • More risk: Smaller outdoor and in-person gatherings in which individuals from different households remain spaced at least 6 feet apart, wear cloth face coverings, do not share objects, and come from the same local area
  • Higher risk: Medium-sized in-person gatherings adapted to allow individuals to remain spaced at least six feet apart and with attendees coming from outside SLO County
  • Highest risk: Large in-person gatherings where it is difficult for individuals to remain spaced at least six feet apart and attendees travel from outside the local area
