Safe and Healthy Travel to an International Mass Gathering | CDC Features
International events draw huge crowds and come with unique risks to travelers. Whether they are planned years in advance (Olympics) or happen more spontaneously (Nelson Mandela’s funeral), mass gatherings are associated with crowding at venues, poor hygiene from temporary food and sanitation facilities, and challenging security situations. The risk of infectious diseases increases because of crowded conditions and the influx of attendees from around the world.
