ABSTRACT

Key Planning Recommendations for Mass Gatherings in the Context of the Current COVID-19 Outbreak   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "Mass gatherings are highly visible events with the potential for serious public health consequences if they are not planned and managed carefully. There is ample documentation that mass gatherings can amplify and spread infectious diseases. Respiratory infections, including influenza, have been frequently associated with mass gatherings. Such infections can be transmitted during the mass gathering, during transit to and from the event, and in participants' home communities upon their return. The purpose of this document is to outline key planning considerations for organizers of mass gatherings in the context of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] outbreak."
