The International Housewares Association, as part of its program for enhanced safety during The Inspired Home Show 2022, reported new data projecting the COVID transmission rate during the show in early March will be well below recommended safe travel and gathering thresholds.
IHA and Epistemix, which develops simulations to model the spread of diseases and inform policy, released updated data that projects the risk of COVID transmission at a rate of less than 0.1% of total attendance during The Inspired Home Show, March 5-7, 2022. This projection places The Inspired Home Show below the Center for Disease Control (CDC) threshold for safe travel and gathering.
IHA and Epistemix are working together to develop appropriate mitigation strategies to improve and ensure the safety of The Inspired Home Show.
Epistemix’s latest projections for the low virus transmissibility rate during the show, consider, among many factors, including McCormick Place’s GBAC certification, use of hospital-grade sanitation and increased airflow filtration; The Inspired Home Show masking, testing and vaccination protocols.
