    Wheaton will permit Residential Block Parties with the following safety restrictions:

    • Common public health standards remain in effect - including the use of face coverings and social distancing.
    • Outdoor recreation allowing group sizes up to 50, and permitting multiple groups, given facilities have space to appropriately social distance and can limit interaction between groups.
    • Activity stations should be spaced at least 6 ft. apart or limited in number to ensure social distancing.
    • Shared equipment should be disinfected before and after each use.
    • Seated areas should be arranged so that tables allow for 6 ft. between parties.
