Covid-19 Safety Protocol

We are in the business of planning events but here are risk factors to consider as we take covid-friendly measures to plan your event.

Number of COVID-19 cases in your community

High or increasing levels of COVID-19 cases in the event location or the locations the attendees are coming from increase the risk of infection and spread among attendees. Relevant data can often be found on the local health department website or on CDC’s COVID Data Tracker County View.

Adequate  Supplies
  • Ensure that you have adequate supplies to include soap, water, hand sanitizer containing at least 60% alcohol, a way to dry hands (e.g., paper towels, hand dryer), tissues, disinfectant wipes, masks (as feasible), and no-touch trash cans.

Setting of the event
  • Indoor events, especially in places with poor ventilation, pose more risk than outdoor events.

Stay Home when Appropriate
  • If they have been sick with COVID-19

  • If they tested positive for COVID-19 but had no symptoms

  • If they have recently had a close contact with a person with COVID-19

 

CDC recommends conducting health checks such as temperature screening and other symptom checking of staff and attendees in a way that is safe and respectful, and in accordance with any applicable privacy laws and regulations. It is important to keep in mind that temperature screening and screening of symptoms alone may not prevent someone from attending the event who has COVID-19.

Length of the event
  • Events that last longer pose more risk than shorter events. Being within 6 feet of someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more (over a 24-hour period) greatly increases the risk of becoming infected and requires quarantine.

  • To reduce the spread of covid, we encourage you, our staff, vendors, and attendees to consider the following:

Hand  Hygiene  and  Respiratory Etiquette
  • Encourage guests and service providers to wash their hands frequently (for example, before, during, and after taking tickets, or after touching garbage) with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and increase monitoring to ensure adherence.

Signs and Messages
  • Post signs in highly visible locations (for example, at entrances, in restrooms) that promote everyday protective measures

Physical (Social) Distancing
  • Adjust the size of an event based on the ability of attendees from different households to stay 6 feet (2 arm lengths) apart.

  • Remind attendees upon arrival to stay at least 6 feet away from people who don’t live with them.

  • Discourage attendees and staff from greeting others with physical contact (for example, handshakes). Include this reminder on signs about physical distancing.

  • Find additional information below about how to modify layouts and maintain healthy environments.

Masks
  • Encourage guests and service providers to wear well-fitting masks that fit completely over their nose and mouth. Make a plan beforehand for how compliance will be monitored and ensured.

  • Consider having masks on-hand to provide to staff and attendees who do not bring their own.
