Analyzing & Avoiding COVID-19 Spread At Events & Gatherings

Analyzing & Avoiding COVID-19 Spread At Events & Gatherings

As events and gatherings embrace the new normal of functioning safely, an event planning checklist becomes of utmost importance for many organizers and venues to fall back upon. Whether or not you plan on organizing events – small, medium-sized, or a large gathering, there is a dire need for enhancing the safety of your event-goers and staff accordingly. 

The first steps include analyzing the degree of risk with each venue and event type to enhance those safety measures. 

Here’s How You Can Analyze The Various Degrees Of COVID Risks At Events:

1. Low Risk 

The lowest risk factors for everyone involved will be virtual events and live streams. No contact, no social distancing involved. Only immersion into the live event within the comfort of their homes. Maybe think of planning a safe conference or perhaps a live stream whose tickets you can sell through your Online Ticket Store

2. Moderate Risk

Community sized events like a fair or a food festival might still hold moderate risks of transmission. You can still plan these events by organizing outdoor and indoor gatherings where guests remain spaced at least 6 feet apart, wear masks, do not share objects, and belong to the same locality. Learn more about promoting healthy behaviors that reduce the spread.

3. High Risk

Imagine live music concerts, clubs, bars, or theaters which might be frequented by locals as well as people from outside the community. This increases the moderate risk of organizing events and creates a high-risk environment for everyone. Unless you have a spaced-out real estate to organize social distancing friendly events, avoid high-risk gatherings. 

4. Critical Risk

Any event, whether indoor or outdoor that avoids stringent social distancing, and safety protocols can be deemed to be of critical risk. Although the strongest possibility of COVID transmission is at closed indoor events, outdoor events can also fall prey if missed out on enhanced event operations and logistics.
