Revised CDC Guidelines

CDC guidelines

The new revisions to the CDC Guidelines for event planners are meant to be used in conjunction with state and local mandates.

The newly revised CDC Guidelines for events and gatherings are meant to supplement—not replace—state, local, territorial, or tribal health and safety laws, rules and regulations. The basic premise is common sense:

  • The more people an individual interacts with at a gathering and the longer that interaction lasts, the higher the potential risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 and COVID-19 spreading.
  • The higher the level of community transmission in the area that the gathering is being held, the higher the risk of COVID-19 spreading during a gathering.
  • The size of an event or gathering should be determined based on state, local, territorial or tribal safety laws and regulations.

With that in mind, the guidelines recommend actions planners can take to encourage behaviors that reduce the spread of COVID-19 among staff and attendees, everything from face coverings to frequent hand washing, how to clean and disinfect the venue, how to prepare for someone getting sick and other precautions.

The guidelines are an invaluable tool and include many categories:
