Starting Friday, venue occupancy limits will play a bigger role in determining the number of people permitted both inside and outside.
For example, large stadiums with a capacity of more than 10,000 people will be allowed 15% of their maximum occupancy, up to 7,500 people.
Indoor venues with a capacity of less than 2,000 people will be allowed 20% of their maximum occupancy.
