How to host a COVID-Safe Event
While in India, things are getting back on track since the whole pandemic, feelings are much happy, and celebrations are on the swing. To get you through a safe event, here are some valuable tips and important points to note before going about hosting events. Crowded settings, inside or outside, are an opportunity for transmission of illness, including the covid causing virus. This is especially significant given the unprecedented arrival of a new strand, the Omnicron variant. On an off chance of viral spread at an event, the social atrocities boil down on the host for an irresponsible act. They can bring about the quarantine of numerous people and upset society and relevant authorities.
Check for the number of COVID-19 cases in the locality: High or growing number of COVID-19 cases at the venue or the areas the participants are coming from increases the danger of disease and spread among guests.
Venue: Indoor places with particularly poor ventilation present more danger than outdoor events.
Event span: Occasions that last for extended hours posture more danger of spread. Try to keep brisk events that last 2 to 3 hours maximum.
The number of guests: Events with more individuals increase the probability of being exposed to the virus. An excellent way to keep the numbers correct is by making sure that everyone can stand at least 6 feet apart.
Event organizers should consider executing systems to support practices that decrease the spread of COVID-19 among guests and participants. Assuming there isn't enough space for everyone to have six feet of distance between them, consider making groups or pockets of people of 5 to 7 participants. Just people who were in a unit with an infected individual would be viewed as close contacts. Try and serve the food outdoors, avoid buffet or self serve system, and provide ample handwash and sanitation gear. Post signs in profoundly noticeable areas (for instance, at the entrance, and in bathrooms) to follow defensive measures and covid 19 safety precautions of wearing masks, washing hands regularly, and keeping 6 feet distance at all times.
