For some time, almost all countries have stopped public gatherings, social events as well as political rallies. After the governments and societies realized that they will have to put up with the situation, the public events restarted. Presently, several photography festivals are being organized around the globe to exhibit photography works. Nonetheless, the event organizers and everyone participating in the festival have a role to play in the fight against COVID-19. This post outlines some of the guidelines to follow as a way of curbing the spread of coronavirus.
Keeping Physical Distance
COVID-19 is spread through contact. Therefore, it is critical for anyone attending the photography festival to stay far from other people as a way of reducing the risks of contracting the virus. For instance, health organizations have advised people to keep one and a half meters away. Therefore, the festival organizers could demarcate areas where people can stand as they wait for others to view photography works.
Proper sanitization has been identified as one lethal weapon for fighting against the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, for photography festivals to take place without endangering people from contracting the coronavirus, sanitization is critical. The events should have set cleaning points where festival attendants wash their hands before accessing the venue. Besides, sanitizers should be provided by event organizers.
According to research, people averagely touch their mouth, nose, and eyes more than twenty times in an hour. Therefore, when one touches coronavirus with the hand, the person can easily be infected when they also touch their eye, nose, and mouth. However, with a face mask, the chances of being infected are reduced since the nose and mouth are covered. Hence, anyone attending photography festivals should wear a mask. The event planners should have security personnel that will ensure no one stays without a mask.
