  • Mass Gatherings Should be Postponed/Cancelled until the end of March (3/12/20)
    "Non-essential gatherings must be limited to no more than 250 people, while smaller events can proceed only if the organizers can implement social distancing of 6 feet per person. Gatherings of individuals who are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19 should be limited to no more than 10 people, while also following social distancing guidelines."

Eventbrite is changing event payout schedules 

  • From Eventbrite, 3/12/20: We are reaching out today with important information regarding your Eventbrite account and the status of your scheduled payouts. To ensure your funds are readily available in the event you need to issue refunds to your attendees, we are holding your scheduled payouts for all published and future events in your Eventbrite account. This change will only impact payouts you are scheduled to receive before your event ends. Now, your payout will process 5 days after your event ends, which is our typical policy.  
  • This could significantly impact the cashflow of your event and your organization. Please reach out to VISIONALITY, so we can help you strategize around this continually evolving situation.

  • As of 3/11/20: More cases of COVID-19 are likely to be identified in the United States in the coming days, including more instances of community spread. It’s likely that at some point, widespread transmission of COVID-19 in the United States will occur. Widespread transmission of COVID-19 would translate into large numbers of people needing medical care at the same time. Schools, childcare centers, and workplaces, may experience more absenteeism. Mass gatherings may be sparsely attended or postponed. Public health and healthcare systems may become overloaded, with elevated rates of hospitalizations and deaths. Other critical infrastructure, such as law enforcement, emergency medical services, and sectors of the transportation industry may also be affected. Healthcare providers and hospitals may be overwhelmed. At this time, there is no vaccine to protect against COVID-19 and no medications approved to treat it. Nonpharmaceutical interventions would be the most important response strategy.

Current times call for everyone to adapt to a new normal. VISIONALITY is here to help with that adaptation by hosting virtual meetings and webinars. We have curated a User Manual for individuals new to Zoom's virtual meeting software or those who just want a little more information. 

Nonprofits can be an afterthought during disaster planning and mitigation efforts. We’ve collected multiple resources and translated business action plans to help nonprofit leaders prepare for, operate during, and recover from disasters – specifically COVID-19. Beyond best practices and industry experience, your VISIONALITY team has significant disaster response experience – we’re ready to help you pivot in times of unusual circumstances.
