    CDC - Guidelines and recommendations regarding (FESTIVALS  and Other Large Gatherings)

    Web Site Link Information:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/large-events/considerations-for-events-gatherings.html#anchor_1619540969756

    GATHERINGS (AS of May 20, 2021)!!!

    CDC continues to recommend avoiding large events and gatherings. Currently, CDC does not provide numbers to define small and large events.

    Large gatherings bring together many people from multiple households in a private or public space. Large gatherings are often planned events with a large number of guests and invitations. They sometimes involve lodging, event staff, security, tickets, and long-distance travel. CDC’s large events guidance might apply to events such as conferences, trade shows, sporting events, festivals, concerts, or large weddings and parties.

    Small gatherings are informal in nature and may occur with family and friends you regularly socialize with, often at someone’s residence. They typically do not involve long distance travel. Small gathering guidance might be more appropriate for social gatherings that are more intimate with close friends and family, such as small holiday parties, family dinners, and small special celebrations.

    CDC offers the following guidance to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Event planners should work with state and local health officials to implement this guidance, adjusting to meet the unique needs and circumstances of the local community. This guidance is meant to supplement—not replace—any state, local, territorial, or tribal health and safety laws, rules, and regulations with which gatherings must comply.)


    Regular monthly meeting of the Hempstead Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, normally scheduled monthly at 6:30 PM.
