As I start thinking about the return of in-person events, a lot of questions and ‘what-if’ situations can arise due the Covid-19 pandemic. This means, that apart from restrictions dictated by the Government and Venues, we will also have to think about what makes everyone comfortable and solutions to possible situations, such as:
Folk buys a ticket to an event and just before it happens, they test positive or starts getting symptoms. What should we do? We’re thinking that the best solution is to refund the ticket price (minus any admin charges) when the result of a PCR test is presented. In this case, as one can develop symptoms and not have Covid-19, the best and sensible thing is to self-isolate, so we would also take a negative result and still refund the ticket. What are your thoughts?
Unvaccinated folks want to attend. Should we demand the result of a PCR or Lateral Flow test 72 hours before? At the moment, this is out of our control at some venues, as they’re already demanding this, but some aren’t. What do you think we should do?
Mandatory wearing of masks: the current Government Guidance is to wear masks in all in-door spaces. However this guidance might change and towards the summer months, this might not be needed. Would you like us to continue with this guidance at all times?
These are some example situations we have thought about and I’m sure there are plenty more. So, I would like to ask you all lovely people to help me build a good support document with MoT rules to our in-person events. Feel free to comment on the above situations or to add more questions.
I want to make sure I cover all possible situations, but most of all I want everyone to feel safe at our in-person events! Can you help me achieve that?
