Q: In Oregon we have a ban on events of 25 or more. Would an event location with room for 3+ feet between people work?
Here is an how i see it
4. [...] I am prohibiting[...] gatherings of 25 people or more. This prohibition applies statewide.
5. [...] this Executive Order include, but are not limited to, any[...] events or activities, if a distance of at least three (3) feet between individuals cannot be maintained.
I read #5 as adding restrictions for events under 25. Not exceptions for events over 25.
Prohibition on Gatherings of 25 People or More
4. Pursuant to ORS 433.441(3)(a), (b), (d) and (f), ORS 401.168(1),-and ORS 401.188(2), I am prohibiting social, spiritual, and recreational gatherings of 25 people or more. This prohibition applies statewide.
5. Gatherings subject to Paragraph 4 of this Executive Order include, but are not limited to, any community, civic, public, leisure, faith-based, and sporting events, concerts, conventions, fundraisers, fairs, festivals, and any similar events or activities, if a distance of at least three (3) feet between individuals cannot be maintained
