Suggested transition periods for in-person to online transition

External measures to restrict travel and events in order to reduce the rate
of COVID-19 spread are commonly not pre-announced, but in many scenarios
event organizers/hosts have at least some flexibility to choose when to
notify participating individuals and organizations that an in-person event
must be cancelled or significantly postponed.

In addition to taking account of event size, I suggest therefore to
distinguish arrangements for transition times for events scheduled to start

   - 1-12 hours
   - 1 day
   - 2-7 days
   - 8-21 days
   - More than 21 days

A working premise is that the target audience for these arrangements is
comprised of event organizers and participants who determine that, one way
or another, a genuine effort at an online event is preferred over outright
cancellation or postponement.
