Larger weddings can return to Long Island starting Monday.

The venues can accommodate up to 150 people or half their capacity.

Masks and physical distancing are still required for guests during the celebrations.

People have to stay in designated “dance zones” so that they do not come into contact with other people.

At Stewart Manor Country Club, guests are required to take a temperature check, complete a health screening card, and show a negative COVID-19 test or vaccination card before they can go in and party.

John Parks, owner of Stewart Manor Country Club, says the venue will follow guidelines so its guests can celebrate in a safe environment.

“The dancing is in designated areas, at least six by six, dot 36 square feet. We’ll be working with the bands and DJs to make sure that these designated areas are preserved and you can dance with the guests at your table,” explains Parks.
