ESL updated its health and security guidelines today for the IEM Katowice playoffs, which will kick off on Friday, Feb. 28 at the Spodek Arena.
Although ESL didn’t provide the exact reason for the changes, it’s likely due to the coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, which has already infected over 80,000 people and killed 2,700 around the globe. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the respiratory infection a global health emergency on Jan. 30.
ESL has worked in cooperation with the local government and health authorities to add precautions for everyone attending the playoffs. “As part of the precautions, we have added health screening for all attendees, including temperature checks at entryways, additional medical professionals onsite, and additional sanitization stations onsite,” ESL said.
We have updated our event health and safety guidelines; temperature checks will be implemented for everyone visiting #IEM Katowice this week.
