Calculator: Maximum Retail Occupant Load During COVID-19
Non-essential retail operations are limited to 25% of approved fire safety occupancy; or 1 customer per 200 square feet; or 10 total customers and staff combined, whichever is greater. Operators must post their temporary occupancy limit, and which method was used to determine it, prominently on all entrances.
To assist with the posting of this information, please refer to the Maximum Retail Occupant Load calculator and "Limited Capacity Permitted" poster. For more information and additional guidance go to:
