What is a Mitigation Plan?

A mitigation plan outlines the steps you will take before, during, and after your event to reduce risk of your staff, volunteers and attendees contacting the virus.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, event organizers have a lot of decisions to make to plan a safer event:

  • How can the event be organized to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 to staff, volunteers and attendees?
  • Should the event move forward depending on local case counts?
  • If the event moves forward, what are the local mandates?
  • How should the room be setup?
  • Can food be served safely?
  • How should travel from other places be handled?

A mitigation plan will help you answer these questions and reduce the risk of virus transmission at your event. It isn’t possible to guarantee COVID-19 won’t be spread when people gather in person, but it is possible to plan ahead and reduce the risk.
