If you’re planning a business event, here’s a guideline for what you need to know for how to deal with today’s Covid recovering world.
As restrictions relax and vaccinations continue, people are eager to return to pre-pandemic life, and the event industry is excited to deliver.
But until herd immunity is achieved, the event industry must overcome unprecedented challenges to help stop the spread.
Read on for the latest industry advice for setting up business meetings in today’s complicated world.
In April 2021, the California Department of Health and Cal/OSHA issued COVID-19 Industry Guidance for Private Venues and Events. This guide expands on the state’s tier-based Blueprint for a Safer Economy, addressing how vaccinations and negative COVID-19 tests allow for higher capacities.
Event planners have to wear multiple hats like never before. As a result, it is essential to familiarize yourself with the various safety protocols of the industries you expect to intersect with your event.
If you’re planning a business event, it may be frustrating to have so many limitations as you resume operations. But it would be undoubtedly devastating to have events cancelled again due to outbreaks and/or subsequent tighter restrictions.
If you’re planning a business event, be aware that regulations are unlikely to go away before herd immunity is achieved. It will take time as vaccines continue to slowly roll out. Testing has proven to be a reliable way to control and prevent outbreaks, which is why testing of employees at event venues with confirmed COVID-19 cases is required. Onsite PCR testing for small companies and events in Sacramento is a growing strategy the industry has embraced to emphasize safety and avoid setbacks caused by outbreaks.
Mobile COVID-19 testing services will send one or more nurses to your event to administer COVID-19 tests to all employees, vendors, and even attendees.
As healthcare professionals, they have access to rapid antigen tests which return results in as little as 15 minutes, making them an ideal choice for same-day guest testing. Services often include consultations on what to do if someone develops symptoms at your event, and packages can often be negotiated for group discounts or ongoing service contracts.
