The BlockGas action consensus 2023 includes that we adhere to the hygiene concepts. We cordially invite all persons who agree to the consensus to participate in the action.
We will minimize the risk of spreading Covid-19 during our gathering as low as possible. We are taking responsibility in the context of this pandemic.
The hygiene concept includes: mindful interaction with each other, distance and FFP2 mask, where distance is not possible or (e.g. in closed rooms) is not sufficient, and testing.
Before the Demo/Action:
Test: We urge you to test for Covid-19 before you leave for the action and only join if you have tested negative. For people who are not financially able to do so, for all particularly exposed or endangered persons, BlockGas provides some Covid-19 tests.
At the Demo/Action:
Masks: BlockGas calls on all activists to bring enough FFP2 masks (important: without an exhalation valve, otherwise your other masks will not protect you!) – please bring more than one per day, in case of any doubt (e.g. if the mask gets wet). For people who are not financially able to do so, for all particularly exposed or endangered persons, BlockGas provides some FFP2 masks.
Dynamic situations: In the action or demonstration, the minimum distance cannot always be maintained, also because of external actors. We try to avoid such situations or keep them as short as possible.
Hand cleaning and disinfection: We wash and/or disinfect our hands regularly. Please bring disinfectant for your own use!
After the Demo/Action:
Up to two weeks: Despite all precautions, infections can occur. Therefore, we strongly recommend all participants to reduce their social contacts in the two weeks after the action, especially with people at risk. We advise testing yourself regularly for Covid-19 within this time.
