Do I need to cancel an event if there are confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the community?
If there is minimal or moderate spread of COVID-19 in the community, CDC recommends cancelling an:
- event that includes 250 people or more.
- event likely to have 10 or more people who are at higher risk of serious COVID-19 illness. This includes older adults and people with underlying health problems such as lung or heart disease and diabetes.
If there is substantial spread of COVID-19 in the community, CDC recommends cancelling events of any size. See guidance for definitions of minimal, moderate, and substantial spread.
