  • Multiple MWC relevant testing centres will be available to support rapid testing
  • All tests will be performed by qualified personnel, working alongside the Catalan Health Authorities
  • Whilst in the venue, temperature checks will also be conducted at all access points

Social Distancing and Occupancy Monitoring

  • Using a combination of technology (Occupancy Monitoring) and on-the-ground support, the number of attendees within the venue will be monitored and controlled for effective social distancing and density control
  • We will monitor occupancy capacity along multiple dimensions, including perimeters, hall capacity, concurrent capacity, density and overall limits using a combination of technology and cameras
  • We will also minimise crowd density with additional access and exit points
  • Attendees, staff, visitors and suppliers must wear a FFP2 (Filtering Facepiece Respirators) mask, adhere to social distancing requirements, complete a daily health questionnaire assessed via the My MWC app – and make regular use of the 1,300 disinfectant dispensers placed around the venue
