Each/Every changes the verb into singular (i.e. overrides the number rule for conjunction)
For example: Every boy and girl is required to wear an uniform.

I believe there is some ambiguity in the question statement itself. If "every one of the support staff" and "the participants" are different entities, "have" could well be the right usage.
