15 ways that you can protect yourselves and your guests, should you be organizing any gatherings that cannot be shifted:
• Move your event online, if possible.
• Ensure you check the guestlist for anyone coming from a high outbreak region. If they do, suggest they not attend the event.
• Create hand washing stations at the entry point to the event requesting everyone wash their hands before entering.
• Hand sanitizer stations.
• Wrapped foods with no self-serve tongs or all pre-plated meals. Avoid buffets at all costs.
• No handshakes signs at the event.
• Move chairs apart as much as possible.
• Take tables seating down to six and do not seat more than six at a 60” round to reduce proximity.
• Clean and sanitize all mics, podiums before the between speakers.
• Do not allow the sharing of countryman headsets.
• No straws unless they are individually wrapped for each guest.
• Hire additional staff to sanitize and disinfect spaces – 14 and 4 hours pre-event.
• Ensure you are staying abreast of local health news and identify a cancellation endpoint for your event.
• Make a back-up plan should you have to cancel.
• Have a plan to deal with anyone who shows signs of illness during your event or conference and plan for including isolation spaces, waste removal and health care contacts.
