The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and the contest’s organisers (NPO, NOS and AVROTROS) announced last january a final decision regarding the scenario that will ensure the health and safety of all people that will be involved in the Eurovision Song Contest next May in Rotterdam. From all the initial four scenarios they considered at the beginning, the organisers have decided to implement ‘Scenario B’.
The health safety and protocols that will be followed match with the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment guidelines for similar large-scale events such as sports competitions.
The delegations will have to stay in the hotel except for the rehearsals, shows and other activities related to the contest. Press, crew and workers at the Rotterdam Ahoy will be tested regularly at a special designated area next to the hall. This strategy is based on the guidelines of the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment and the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport in the Netherlands.
So, that means the organisers will be following ‘Scenario B’, where the number of members of each delegation will be reduced as well as the journalists attending the event, which will be capped at 500 with a further 1,000 able to cover the show in a new online press centre.
