The Events Industry Forum Updates Outdoor Guidance
The Events Industry Forum have updated their outdoor guidance on, “keeping workers and audiences safe during Covid-19”.
The document, which was released on the 11th July 2020, has recently been updated in accordance with new outdoor guidance applicable to England. The purpose of its original release was to help those in the outdoor event industry understand how to work safely during the COVID-19 pandemic, in line with government regulations.
According to an email sent out by Jim Winship, Secretary at The Events Industry Forum, changes have recently been made. It comes as numerous areas around the country, including Oldham and Blackburn, return to stricter measures in order to contain outbreaks of COVID-19.
The revised advice, which is highlighted on the web page, states that, “you should always consider whether there are local restrictions in place in the area where your event is taking place. If your event is in an area that is experiencing a local COVID-19 outbreak, and where local restrictions have been imposed, different guidance and legislation will apply. Please consult local restrictions pages to see if any restrictions are in place in the area.”
The document has been prepared by the Events Industry Forum in collaboration with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). It has also had input from Public Health England (PHE) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
