Guidelines from the World Health Organisation to Organisers of Sporting Events

The International Olympic Committee  (IOC) published a press release with World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines on mass gatherings, aimed specifically at providing additional support to sports events organisers and host countries in developing a risk-assessment process, identifying mitigation activities and making an informed evidence-based decision on hosting any sporting events. The guidelines can be found here.

Organisers of sporting events can use these guidelines to guarantee athletes safety during competition times.
