Guidelines for Large-Scale Public Gatherings during the COVID-19 Pandemic

According to the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC), recent instances of family infections and hospital cluster infections have caused the number of indigenous cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Taiwan to exceed the number of imported ones. Furthermore, there have been several cases where the source of infection could not be identified. These are all warning signs of community transmission.

Large-scale public gatherings tend to attract considerable crowds, with people standing or sitting in close proximity to one another for extended periods of time, causing an increased risk of transmission. The discovery of suspected individual cases or cluster infections complicates efforts to prevent and control the spread of COVID-19. Having evaluated the domestic and foreign development of the outbreak and consulted with experts, the CECC recommends that organizers of large-scale public gatherings reassess the necessity of holding the events and consider postponing or suspending nonessential events that involve large groups of people in relatively small venues. In addition, to prevent widespread community transmissions, the CECC also recommends that events that are attended by members of the general public instead of a specific set of invitees and that pose a high risk of transmission due to close contact among participants be postponed or suspended.

The goal of the CECC in issuing these guidelines, which have been formulated in accordance with COVID-19 documentation issued by the World Health Organization, is to help government departments at all levels, state-run companies, public and private schools, and other organizations from the public and private sectors make appropriate decisions when planning large-scale public gatherings.
