World Health Organization Recognizes Importance of Mass Gatherings

The World Health Organization (WHO) has updated its stance on the reopening of large events, including sports, concerts, political rallies, religious events and other kinds of “mass gatherings,” in the context of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.


In a new document titled “Key planning recommendations for mass gatherings in the context of the current COVID-19 outbreak” published on May 29, the WHO has recognized that these types of events are important for not only employment, but also the “psychological well-being of large numbers of individuals.” It also continues to recommend specific baseline precautions to limit the virus’s spread.

The full document can be accessed at the WHO’s publications website.
