With regard to covid, The Green Gathering is looking at various scenarios including only open-sided venues with controlled capacity, masks on shuttle buses and for customer-facing crew, a 'covid contract' as part of the T&Cs for people to sign up to (pledging to keep to whatever the guidelines are at that time), plenty of sanitiser points, redesign of the plumbing system to provide dozens of handwash stations, more loos, enhanced cleaning all over site. (and more, all under continual review).
