Coronavirus and Outdoor Events

As we enter a Summer unlike any other during the pandemic, many of us are figuring out how to safely be around others. Outdoor gatherings or events, when approached carefully, may be a viable option to get together while still staying safe. Let’s take a look at some of the things to keep in mind for outdoor gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic.

Healthy behaviors to prevent coronavirus spread

There are several behaviors that are important to encourage for any people attending a gathering. First, people should stay home from events when necessary. For example, if someone has recently tested positive for the coronavirus, or if they are showing symptoms of the coronavirus, they should not attend any events. If you are planning an event, consider creating policies that encourage this for employees, volunteers, and attendees. Flexible refund and worker policies can help promote safer behaviors.

For people who will be attending an outdoor event or gathering, good hygiene is incredibly important. Regular hand-washing is a key component of preventing disease spread, so easy access to hand-washing and sanitizing stations and areas is crucial. People should also cover coughs and sneezes and wash their hands immediately after.

Cloth face coverings are another key aspect of preventing disease spread. By wearing masks at gatherings, people who may be unknowingly infected keep others safe. Masks are especially important when social distancing is not possible. This distancing is another key component of safe gatherings. People should maintain a distance of at least six feet from people not in their households when possible.

To ensure all of these behaviors are encouraged and followed, make sure you provide necessary supplies and reminders. Post signs that remind people of healthy behaviors in visible locations, and make sure there are enough hand-washing and sanitizing stations. You may want to announce regular reminders to hand-wash, distance, and sanitize. Additionally, you may need to provide cloth masks for people without them.

Healthy environments

There are several key parts of making a safe and healthy environment for outdoor gatherings during the pandemic. Clean and disinfect high-use and shared surfaces on a regular schedule (between use as much as possible). This can include tables, handles, and railings.

Restrooms can be a tricky area to manage too. You can limit the number of people who can use a restroom at the same time. Additionally, you can implement a six foot distance policy for any restroom lines. Make sure to regularly clean restrooms, and stock them with hand-washing supplies. Fortunately, companies like Moon Portable Restrooms can help you get the restrooms and sanitizing stations you need for a safer gathering.

Gathering layouts are important to consider as well. You can consider limiting gathering capacity or seating to enable more social distancing. You can also enforce distancing by creating distance between seats and putting distanced lines or other markers on the ground where lines may form.

If food is a part of your gathering, there are a few other important considerations. There is no evidence that the coronavirus can spread through food directly. However, sharing utensils and congregating in shared spaces to get or consume food can spread the disease. Disposable food service items like silverware and plates can be a safe option. Additionally, you should distance seating areas and clean them as much as possible. You should also avoid self-service dining.

Local context

The most important consideration for any outdoor gathering is the specific local context. At a basic level, the higher the level of community transmission in the place a gathering is held, the higher the risk of disease spread is at the gathering. Every location is experiencing disease spread and impact in different ways, and different cities, counties, states, and countries have their own rules in response. You should always check specific guidance for where your gathering or event may be. That guidance will give you the best idea of specific do’s and don’ts, and whether having your event is allowable or responsible.

Press Release

While local businesses across the city of Louisville and the state of Kentucky have been forced to close due to the coronavirus outbreak, Moon Portable Restrooms has found themselves to be busier than ever. Moon Portable Restrooms, led by BJ Davis, is a local business that supplies handwash stations, hand sanitizer stations, portable restrooms, flushable restrooms, and luxury restroom trailers to customers looking to host an outdoor event. While the city deals with an outbreak of Covid-19, Davis and his dedicated crew are providing their products and services in order to ensure that safe, sanitary stations are set up throughout the city for use by the public as well as other businesses that have been deemed essential.

“We are very fortunate to be an essential company,” Davis said when asked about the role his company and coworkers are playing in ensuring that the spread of the coronavirus slows throughout the city. However, Moon Portable Restrooms has been involved with the city in regards to supplying and setting up portable restrooms and handwashing stations long before coronavirus made its way to Louisville, KY. Due to Moon Portable Restrooms’ dedicated involvement with the city in years past, Davis was one of the first people that Louisville’s Emergency Management Agency called when it was apparent that the coronavirus was in Louisville and EMA needed all the resources they could gather to ensure that those less fortunate, and those who were still needed in their essential job roles, had the necessary resources to keep themselves clean as they went about their required duties.

Planning an Outdoor Wedding? Here Are 5 Reasons Why You Should Rent A Bathroom Trailer

Whether you’re planning on getting hitched in your parent’s backyard, on a sprawling farm, park or vineyard, there’s no denying the charm of a picturesque outdoor wedding. In fact, outside wedding ceremonies and receptions are quickly becoming one of this year’s biggest wedding trends. And yet, after couples book their caterer, DJ, photographer, tent, tables and decor, bathrooms seem to be the last thing anybody thinks about.

However, if you’re planning on having your wedding a little off the beaten path, here’s why you’ll want to prioritize renting a top of the line portable restroom:

  1. They’re nicer than you think.

While the idea of renting a portable restroom for a formal outdoor wedding may not seem in keeping with the theme of the event, our luxury bathroom trailers are so clean and discreet that they resemble a brick and mortar restroom. Every trailer comes complete with flushing toilets, hot and cold water, as well as separate cabins for men and women. Additionally, many models feature wood grain flooring, Corian countertops, vessel sinks, subway tile, mirrors, cabinetry, a flat-screen TV and built-in stereo to match the sophistication of the day. 

  1. You can celebrate anywhere and everywhere.

Don’t be limited by your venue. At Moon, we can accommodate your guests even if there’s no power or water close by. So if a remote and breathtaking view is what you’re after, give us a call. We’ve even set up beach side before!

  1. You can properly accommodate everyone.

Even if you’re outdoor venue already has bathrooms, chances are they won’t be up to par in terms of quality or quantity. Most parks for example have plenty of bathrooms open to the public. However, these tend to be dirty and irregularly maintained. On the other hand, if you’re celebrating at a personal residence there will likely be nice bathrooms, just not enough of them. Besides, the last thing your host will want is for your guests to have track through their house in search of one.

It’s best if your guests have a place worthy of freshening up in. It’s also important that everyone at your wedding can comfortably use the loo should they need to. At Moon Portable Restrooms, we offer an ADA compliant bathroom trailer. This option is extra spacious and fully accessible to everyone so your big day can go off without a hitch. 

  1. You can get married in all types of weather.

Weather seems to always be the number one concern when it comes to planning an outdoor wedding. However, our portable restroom trailers are heated and air conditioned so you’re guests can be comfortable no matter the season.  

  1. No maintenance required.

Not only do we deliver days before the event so you can rest assured everything will be in working order and in its proper place, our bathroom trailers come fully stocked and ready to go. Our personal attendant will even make sure it stays clean and functional for the duration of your reception so you have one less thing to worry about.  

 

We’re one of Louisville’s premier wedding vendors and have an option for every budget and bride. With the largest selection of upscale restroom trailers in the Kentuckiana area, we can be flexible with your date and guarantee the right size trailer for your guest list, whether you have 50 people or 500.
