ATLANTA, GA — Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has released an Executive Order lifting a moratorium on the acceptance of applications for permits for outdoor events for up to 49,999 persons. Various upcoming events held are required to meet the emergence and requirements based on the COVID-19 mitigation requirements highlighted in the COVID-19 Special Events Permit Overlay.

In order to apply for the outdoor events permit, the organizers should fill out the COVID-19 Special Events Permit Overlay form and submit it with the following information:

  • An Internal Health Plan (per CDC guidelines) with detailed compliance of the event.
  • Contact information for an (on‐site) health coordinator. The health coordinator is responsible for ensuring your event is compliant with the COVID‐19. The health coordinator is not required to have a medical background.
  • Guidelines, as required by the City of Atlanta.

The Internal Health Plans should cover the following conditions:

  • Mandate all patrons, staff, vendors and/or volunteers to wear face masks
  • Provide hand sanitizers and handwashing stations at entrances, inside portable restrooms and other well-marked locations
  • Maintain public spaces and facilities according to CDC guidelines
  • Do regular checkings on high-touch areas (barricades, food preparation areas, beverages stations, restrooms and more)

In addition, each application must include the detailed total square footage of the event area ora site plan, along with the measurements to allow attendees to social distance. The site plan will be reviewed and approved respectively by APD and AFRD. AFRD will review permitted areas, including the capacity to six-foot social distancing.
