Events & corona

The Consultative Committee of Governments in Belgium has laid-out rules and regulations regarding holding events.

“From August 13, outdoor events with more than 1,500 visitors can use the Covid Safe Ticket. When using the Covid Safe Ticket, rules around mouth mask, distance and CIRM / CERM restrictions are no longer applicable. However, there must be a crowd management plan, sanitary precautions must be followed and adequate ventilation (with CO2 meter inside) must be provided”, says the City of Antwerp website

What are CIRM and CERM you ask? COVID Infrastructure Risk Model (CIRM) and COVID Event Risk Model (CERM). 

So can we have a pride without masks? Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.
