    Learn about Events 

    In SORMAS, an "event" refers to any situation or gathering where there might be a risk of disease spreading.  Here’s what this means:

    ✔️ Gatherings or Incidents: An event can be something like a concert, a festival, a wedding, or even a smaller gathering like a family reunion.

    ✔️Tracking Disease Spread: Events are important to track because they can help health officials understand how diseases are spreading. If someone at an event gets sick, knowing about the event helps trace who else might have been exposed.

    ✔️Preventative Action: By identifying and monitoring these events, health workers can take steps to prevent further spread of the disease. This might include reaching out to attendees, providing them with information, or advising them on what to do if they feel sick.

    ✔️Data Collection: SORMAS keeps a record of all events related to health incidents. This information helps build a clearer picture of where diseases are occurring and how they are moving through communities.

The ability to associate documents, and specify event locations will empower you to tailor your approach to each unique situation, enhancing your ability to respond effectively.

    Overall, an event in SORMAS is any situation where people gather and there is a potential for health risks. Tracking these events helps manage and control outbreaks more effectively.
