Although the country is still trying to flatten the curve, some venues and businesses are starting to reopen with restrictions based on state guidelines. For most areas in Florida, restrictions on social events will relax soon, although it is a requirement that businesses use best practices to maintain social distancing.
If you have a corporate or personal event coming up and you don’t want to reschedule, there are some precautions you will need to take to ensure that you are operating within guidelines. That includes social distancing as well as occupancy limits.
Here are a few ways you can protect yourself, your staff, and your attendees during your event.
- Decrease number of attendees. You may need to refund some registrations. It could be difficult to determine who will be allowed to attend. If you have several people from one company registered, ask the company to choose just one representative.
- Encourage all of your attendees and staff to wear masks or facial coverings to reduce the likelihood of spreading the virus.
- Place chairs at six foot intervals or tape off chairs to allow for six foot distance between people. You may want to leave a couple of areas where there is more than one chair next to each other, especially if you will be inviting families that may have children they need to keep close.
- Avoid buffet style meals and refreshments and instead set up catering where the food is cooked per person on-site, such as omelet stations.
