Tent - outdoor or indoor?

Can someone help me. Is a tent considered an indoor venue? If it’s outside at a staffed venue?

    A tent that is not enclosed is considered outdoor, the regulation states:

      • If an outdoor area is covered by a roof, canopy, tent, awning, or other element - at least two full sides of the entire outdoor area must be open to the outdoors and must not be substantially blocked by any walls or other impermeable physical barriers.
      • Limit capacity under the tent/canopy to ensure physical distancing can be maintained.
      • Arrange tables and chairs to promote physical distancing.
      • Require masks or face coverings if physical distancing cannot be maintained.

    Anything where two sides are fully open is considered outdoor. So this could be two "walls" or an open roof + one side.

    So as long as you're not using one of those circus tents where every side is draped off and you have to "open" a doorway, it's outdoor.

    Hello Sara,

    I would think that it would be considered outdoor even though using a tent. As it is not an actual building… maybe I am wrong. 😂
    Let’s see what others say…
