We are committed to your health and safety! 

See the extra measures we are taking during the Sofia Science Festival to limit the spread of Covid-19. 

More cleaning and disinfection

  • We have scheduled a deep cleaning before and more frequent cleaning of each venue during the festival days. 
  • The venues will be cleaned after each event and all chairs will be disinfected. To do so thoroughly we have scheduled longer intermissions between events than in previous editions. 
  • Hand sanitiser units are installed at the entrance to all venues.
  • Signage with posters and information notices on display on each point of flow control: at the venue entrances, at hall and area entrances, in bathrooms/washrooms.
  • A schedule for more frequent, documented cleaning of the bathrooms has been set up.

Ventilation

The ventilation system will be switched off during presentations. During the 40-minute break the halls will be naturally ventilated or air conditioning is going to be switched on at higher speed. 

Distancing and access

  • We have reduced the seating capacity to 50% inside the venues and will arrange chairs at the required distancing of 1.5 m.
  • Points of control of flow will be set up to allow access only to visitors with tickets for the particular event.
  • We have reduced the capacity of the stand areas in line with restrictions of maximum acceptable capacity for each area.
  • All staff and volunteers have been instructed to watch out for strict observance of all measures. 
  • We reserve the right to turn away or remove from the premises anybody who is in violation of the safety measures.

Wearing masks

  • All staff in customer-facing roles and volunteers will be provided with face shields and asked to bring their own face masks.
  • We request and will monitor for the correct wearing of masks before and during events, and on premises. 

The health and safety measures are in line with stipulations set by the Ministry of Health, Sofia Municipality and Sofia Tech Park.
