It’s time to charge forward and have Live Events again, but how do we do…
Author: Dr. Jenny Hunnicutt
Over one year into the COVID-19 pandemic…
We all had high hopes that 2021 would allow us to return to our favorite events, like festivals and concerts. But every day large-scale events are being cancelled or switched to virtual.
There is hope! With more and more people getting vaccinations, the future of returning to large-scale events is promising!
But it is important to remember that the CDC still recommends mask-wearing, 6-feet social distancing, and avoiding medium to large gatherings, regardless of vaccination status. (CDC COVID-19 Guidelines were reviewed April 12, 2021.)
So how do we safely return to large gatherings?
Lots of planning!
In this new post-pandemic world, there are several actions you must consider in the planning of large-scale events:
- Hire COVID-19 Compliance Officers to oversee, implement, and manage safety and sanitation protocols at your festival or concert venue
- Frequent sanitization of the venue with products on the EPA’s N list of approved products for treating COVID-19
- Protect your patrons by providing personal protective equipment (masks, surface wipes, hand sanitizer, etc.)
Remember: early planning is key to running a successful festival or concert. Even if your big event is scheduled months to a year in advance, consider planning COVID-19 safety protocols TODAY!
