COVID-19: Public Health issues advice for event organisers and people attending local events

The Director of Public Health is issuing advice for people preparing to attend events in the Bailiwick and to event organisers, as efforts continue to protect the community from the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Dr Nicola Brink said that all advice already issued has also informed the current position taken on events. This includes recommending:

  • Increasing restrictions on travel
  • Guidance on social distancing;
  • Advice for the over-65s; and
  • Guidance on healthcare environments.

People attending local events should consider the likely number of attendees, whether it will be possible to maintain social distancing, and whether it allows for good hygiene to be maintained.

In particular, over-65s, or those with underlying health conditions, should consider very carefully whether to attend events, given they are more vulnerable. More information is available on https://gov.gg/covid19guidance.

If you remain unsure or anxious about attending an event or gathering check out all the relevant advice which can be found at https://gov.gg/coronavirus.
