Also, using visible stickers and ground signs or entry, exit, and lining up tracks. Also, limiting visit durations and interaction between organizers and participants as possible.

On the organizational side, there shall be a check for attendees contacting participants and organizers through the preregistration of data and contact details. Also, abiding by electronic booking or ticket purchase and training employees ahead on procedures, safety protocols, and instructions.
