Burning Man Organizers Share Update on COVID-19 Contingency Plans – EDM.com

Despite announcing earlier in March that they planned to move forward with their 2020 event, Burning Man’s organizers have spoken more realistically in a recent update. A statement posted to their website reveals their working contingency plan in addition to managing expectations regarding refunds.

“…One of the biggest questions is whether we’ll be able to build and experience Black Rock City 2020,” reads a passage of the statement. “In the current climate of uncertainty it is simply too soon to tell. There are some indications that the virus may peak in the next couple of months and then begin to subside, while others believe the pandemic could have a much longer timeline.”
