The Venues & Outdoor Events sector of the Louisville Tourism’s Reopening Task Force is actively developing strategies for sector preparedness in resuming operations so that once authorized large gatherings can begin happening again. The overall goal is to provide event producers with information and best practices that need to be executed during their event to ensure that proper guidelines are being implemented to protect the health and safety of all involved – attendees, staff, vendors, and volunteers.
The decision of when large gatherings can happen will be determined by federal, state, and local officials. It is recommended that event producers closely monitor government policy changes, Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, government mandates, and public health announcements. Event producers must adapt as needed. Due to the unknown timeliness and development of COVID-19, protocols and procedures will need to be fluid and venues/events are expected to quickly adhere to new ways of working when/if necessary. This document is subject to continued review and modification by the Venues & Outdoor Events Task Force.
