Where the number of mass attendance events grows, a need has been identified to assess the risk of those events and ensure that appropriate mitigations are in place.
- Covid transmission levels on a regional or national basis.
- Regional and local epidemiological data on case rates, vaccination rates, hospitalisations and deaths as a result of Covid-19 infections.
- Local contextual information and insight on hospital capacity.
- Local outbreaks of Variants of Concern (VOCs) of Covid-19, particularly any with vaccine-escape properties.
- Government guidance.
The tool has been adapted by the Public Health Team in Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council from a document made by Public Health England (July 2021).
Update: Last updated in October 2021 based on the Government's Autumn and Winter Plan 2021.
How to complete the risk assessment
- Enter name and date of event and organiser.
- Enter a score for each of the six factors in the last column. For example, if your event is expected to have less than 500 attendees, enter 1 on the right hand column.
- Enter only one score for every factor. Add the six scores and provide a total score.
- Risk score 6 to 20: Green – no SAG needed
- Risk score 21 to 33: Yellow – SAG is recommended.
- Risk score 34 to 44: Amber – SAG Strongly recommended
- Score 45 or more: Red – Consider IMT to see if Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No 3) Regulations 2020 that came into force on 18 July 2020 need to be applied
- Event Organiser to complete and score each event – signed off by Chair of District / Peterborough SAG.
