COVID-19 Mass Gatherings Risk Assessment Training

anytime, online course.

The purpose of this course is to provide guidance for health authorities and organizers of mass gatherings in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the specific aim of containing risks associated with transmission of this infection.

Please note: Presentations in this course were revised in October 2020 to reflect updates in the risk assessment tools.

The training describes the risk-based approach that WHO recommends to aid health authorities and event organizers in their planning for upcoming mass gatherings amid the current COVID-19 pandemic. WHO has developed a set of COVID-19 risk assessment tools dedicated to generic mass gatherings as well as to sports specific and religious specific mass gatherings.

These risk assessment tools provide a user-friendly way for health authorities and organizers to understand the level of risk an upcoming mass gathering may hold in further spreading COVID-19, both within a country and globally, and to learn about the precautionary measures that can be applied to the planned event to mitigate such risk.

All of the tools mentioned can be found on the WHO website. The course has been developed in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, WHO Collaborating Centre on Global Health Security.
