Overview and Scope of Document
This risk assessment has been written as a stand-alone assessment of current risks in relation to Covid-19 and should be read in conjunction with any other risk assessments related to specific events.

This document focuses solely on additional potential risks imposed by the Coronavirus when working at event venues.

This risk assessment will be reviewed at least every three months unless there are significant changes to UK Government Guidance or there is cause to review the document earlier.
