What to do if someone becomes sick at a public event

Provided by MGS

As economies reopen, scaled-down events are returning to professional and social calendars. Organizers may be concerned about how to respond should a staff member or attendee develop symptoms of COVID-19 while at an event. O

Organizers should immediately separate staff or attendees who become sick until they can go home. If a sick person is too ill to get himself or herself home, contact local authorities, who may be able to arrange for the sick person to be transported home via ambulance. Protocols may vary depending on the type and size of the event, and public health officials can help determine the appropriate response.
