Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released a new report, ‘Get Your Mass Gatherings or Large Community Events Ready for Coronavirus’.
The guidance is intended for organisers and staff responsible for planning mass gatherings or large events in the US.
The CDC states: “As the COVID-19 outbreak evolves, CDC strongly encourages event organizers and staff to prepare for the possibility of outbreaks in their communities. Creating an emergency plan for mass gatherings and large community events can help protect you and the health of your event participants and local community.
“CDC has developed recommended actions for preventing the spread of COVID-19 at mass gatherings and large community events. The Before, During, and After sections of this guidance offer suggested strategies to help you plan for and implement these recommendations.”
