HSP Works With Wedding Hall Owners, Caterers To Prevent Unsafe, Large Gatherings

HSP Partner, the Association for Biorisk Management (ABM), recently met with wedding hall owners and their catering staff in the Dera Bugti district of Balochistan, Pakistan, to ensure that they are following COVID-19 procedures and thus, preventing spread of the disease.

Though the Pakistani government has banned large gatherings like weddings and other large outdoor events that have more than 300 attendees, some communities have not been following this particular rule, which creates opportunities for super-spreader events.

During the session, ABM went over the government’s COVID-19 guidelines and standard operating procedures with the owners, stressed the need for social distancing, and emphasized the maximum number of people that can be in the facility at one time.
