To gain understanding of industries or business areas at high risk of spreading COVID-19, to inform proactive measures.
Any event with a large gathering has demonstrated a high likelihood of spreading COVID-19, which lead to many of the current restrictions on gatherings.
Examples of gathering places identified as high risk include concerts, conferences, festivals, sporting events, and worship gatherings with more than 250 attendees.
Parks and recreational facilities have been directed to cancel large events or meetings during outbreaks, and limit these meetings when a risk of an outbreak is present.
Schools and Child Care
The CDC released a decision tree to assist in determining school and child care closures.
While children with COVID-19 tend to have mild symptoms, they can spread the virus to other children and adults, making schools and child care facilities likely places to spread COVID-19.
Many areas, coastal and non-coastal, have closed schools for the remainder of the school year.
Recent information has indicated the 6-foot social distancing may not be enough, as droplets can travel farther than 6 feet. This has raised additional concerns for beach attendance.
Concern of infection spreading in beach facilities, such as bathrooms, has been raised.
The COVID-19 virus has been shown to remain viable in water, though viability in saltwater is not known. So swimming at coastal beaches may or may not be unsafe.
The CDC gives recommendations for areas at higher risk of transmitting COVID-19.
Additional areas with CDC recommendations include colleges and universities, retirement communities, correctional facilities, tribal communities, homeless populations, any shared housing institution, first responders, and businesses.
