Rapid Scoping Review of Evidence of Outdoor Transmission of COVID-19
A rapid scoping review was conducted by spear in 15 days to seek, evaluate and analyse evidence of incidents of outdoor transmission of COVID-19.
The research suggests that organised outdoor activities and events, which are managed and where risks are assessed and mitigated, are significantly less at risk of escalating the spread of the disease compared to unregulated, unmitigated gatherings. The evidence from the review aided and was essential to discussions on if, when and how outdoor events can resume or be delivered.
