A gathering does not include normal operations at airports, health care facilities shopping malls and centers or other spaces where 10 or more patrons may be in transit.  It also does not include typical office environments, factories  or retail or grocery stores.  It does not include events at which members of the media may need to be present or family residences housing ten or more people.
