On April 29, 2021, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has stated that fully vaccinated Virginias do not have to wear a mask in outdoor settings except for large, crowded events like graduations and sporting events. Mask use is still required indoors and outdoors at large crowded events like concerts, sporting events, and graduation ceremonies. 

Starting April 1, 2021, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam has loosened some of the COVID-19 restrictions. The following easements has gone into effect:

Social gatherings: The maximum number of individuals permitted in a social gathering will increase to 100 people for outdoor settings and 50 people for indoor settings. Social gatherings are currently limited to 10 people indoors and 25 people outdoors.

Entertainment venues: Entertainment and public amusement venues must remain at 30% occupancy. Indoor entertainment and public amusement venues must operate at 30 percent capacity or 500 people, an increase from the current cap of 250 people. Outdoor entertainment
and public amusement venues must operate at 30 percent capacity, with no specific attendee cap. Outdoor venues are currently capped at 30 percent capacity or 1,000 attendees, whichever is fewer.

Recreational sports: The number of spectators allowed at recreational sporting events will increase from 25 to 100 indoors, and from 250 to 500 outdoors. Recreational sporting events are limited to 30% capacity.

In light of these new restrictions, these are some of the things Ready to Stream, LLC are going to be implementing under each of our services through Gov. Northam's Guidelines for All Business Sectors:

Social Gatherings: Sporting Events and Indoor Events

Maintain at least ten feet of distance for establishments where exercise activities, singing, or cheering is performed, and at least six feet of distance for all other settings.
  • Provide clear communication and signage for physical distancing in areas where individuals may congregate, especially at entrances, in seating areas, and in check-out lines.
  • No more than 4 employees are allowed at indoor events; no more than 6 employees are allowed at outdoor events.

Interviews and Conferences

  • We can provide our services for live-streaming and video production 100% remotely.
