Audi FIS Ski Weltcup Final Lenzerheide

Information for volunteers

The Audi FIS Ski World Cup Final 2021 will be a special occasion. We will all certainly remember this event for a long time. But not only because of Covid-19, but because we can expect skiing at the highest level. Despite the current situation, it should be possible to hold a beautiful final. For this, safe conditions must be created for the groups of people involved. The highest priority is the health of all involved! We ask you to study the protection concept and all other information in detail and to adhere strictly to it.

With this in mind, we would like to welcome all helpers to the following information page. Your commitment deserves the greatest respect and recognition. Thank you very much for your help! We look forward to seeing you. This page will be continuously updated with the latest information.

Covid-19

  • The health of all persons on site has top priority; high solidarity and personal responsibility are assumed.
  • Persons with Covid-19 symptoms must stay away from the event.
  • If a Covid-19 disease is diagnosed afterwards (max. after 14 days), the LOC must be informed immediately via the Covid-19 hotline.
  • The questionnaire Annex Blue (see below) must be completed truthfully.

The three most important protective measures are:

Protective masks: At the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Final Lenzerheide, face-coverings are mandatory throughout the event area. Disposable face-coverings or FFP2 masks (recommended) must be worn except on the slope (where collars are allowed).

Hand hygiene: Wash your hands regularly with soap and water and always disinfect your hands before putting on or after taking off your mask.

Keep your distance: Whenever possible, keep a distance of 1.5 metres or more from each other. Keeping a distance is especially important indoors and while eating/drinking.

A person participating in the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Final Lenzerheide can only belong to one colour group and may only mix with persons from other colour groups in exceptional cases. A person is assigned to the colour group within which he/she sleeps and eats.

  • Red: Athletes, racers, coaches, support staff, service staff, athletes' closest management, FIS  
  • Blue: Helpers in the areas of course, set-up/dismantling infrastructure, security service, police, army, civil defence, event organization, accredited external companies 
  • Yellow: Journalists from TV, radio, newspapers, online portals, photographers, technicians, media centre helpers 

In cooperation with the authorities, Swiss-Ski and the FIS, a protection concept was drawn up for the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Final Lenzerheide. This is the basis for all activities on site and concerns the entire event area. We ask you to read the protection concept carefully before your arrival and to adhere to it strictly. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The annex blue (both pages) must be signed during accreditation. Otherwise, accreditation will be rejected.

Complete contact tracing for the traceability of close contacts is a central task of the organizer.  If people are together for more than 15 minutes or repeatedly fall below the minimum distance of 1.5 metres without protective measures, this is considered close contact.

The following applies to the implementation of contact tracing:

  • Presence lists of all persons present are guaranteed via accreditation. These presence lists are kept until 14 days after the event and can be passed on to the health authorities if necessary.
  • When entering and leaving the colour zone, the QR codes of all persons will be scanned so that it can be traced who was in which zone and when.
  • The QR codes will also be scanned when entering and exiting areas where catering is provided.
  • Furthermore, contact tracing will be carried out for each table in the helpers' tent.
  • The QR code is part of your accreditation, which you must wear at all times in the form of an armband and may not be passed on to third parties under any circumstances.

Persons in the blue group do not need to be tested beforehand. If symptoms occur during the race week, symptomatic persons must contact the Covid-19 hotline immediately. Testing facilities are available in Lenzerheide. All costs are at the expense of the person tested (volunteers at the expense of the organizer).

If symptoms occur, it is important to stay away from the event area in any case. The procedure is as follows.

  1. If symptoms occur, the direct supervisor must be informed immediately. The person concerned will be placed in quarantine.
  2. The person in charge of the group immediately informs the Covid-19 representative of the LOC via the Covid-19 hotline (+41 78 240 65 50).
  3. The Covid-19 Officer informs the Task Force.
  4. The task force decides on the further course of action based on the instructions of the cantonal authorities.
  5. Any information to third parties (media, others) must be released in advance by the task force.

Procedure

  • Before the accreditation is issued, the volunteers have to hand in the completed Covid-19 questionnaire at the accreditation container. The assembly times of the different groups of helpers are staggered so that not too many people are at the same place.
  • After receiving the accreditation, we ask the volunteers to go to the place of action according to the order.
  • Every day, people will receive health questions via SMS / WhatsApp. If the answer to one of these questions is yes, we ask the person to stay at home.
