The City of Pittsburgh is following state guidelines for gathering limits to be proactive with COVID-19 mitigation efforts.  These limits are currently set at:

  • Indoor Gathering Limit—25% of maximum capacity
  • Outdoor Gathering Limit—50% of maximum capacity

This information will be updated as regulations are subject to change.

For more information on COIVD-19 Mitigation Efforts, please visit The City of Pittsburgh COVID Response web page.

Capacities listed on website and permits are normal occupancy.  Please calculate total number of allowable guests based upon the percentages above.  (For example:  If permit shows 100 person capacity—under current regulations, Indoor limit would be 25 & outdoor limit would be 50.)

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties that may occasionally cause a double booking to occur.  We are working with the vendor to resolve the issue.  Please note that this may allow the same shelter to be booked more than once for the same date and time.  If this is identified, we will notify you.  Thank you for your understanding.
