AUGUSTA, Maine (WABI) - Up to 200 people can now gather outside at sporting events, concerts and other performances in Maine.

The state has eased the COVID-19 restrictions that initially set that number at 50.

The Department of Community and Economic Development changed the checklist for outdoor spectator events on Friday.

Now up to 200 can attend - as long as they're seated in separate areas of no more than 50 people.

The 50 person limit is still in place for indoor gatherings and events.

The head of the DHHS said in Tuesday’s CDC briefing that state officials are currently reviewing that restriction and may change it, too.
