All guests are encouraged and expected to comply with all CDC and other similar government-issued standards and guidance for COVID-19.  All individuals that are not fully vaccinated are encouraged to avoid large crowds, wear a mask, and social distance at all times during the event.  Risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection, severe disease, and death is reduced for fully vaccinated people. Though they happen in only a small proportion of people who are fully vaccinated, some infections do occur among fully vaccinated people. Fully vaccinated people who do become infected with the Delta variant can transmit it to others. Therefore, fully vaccinated people can further reduce their risk of becoming infected with the Delta variant and transmitting it to others by wearing a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high community transmission. Wearing a mask in public is most important for people who are immunocompromised. Fully vaccinated people might choose to mask regardless of the level of transmission, particularly if they or someone in their household is immunocompromised or at increased risk for severe disease, or if someone in their household is unvaccinated. People at increased risk for severe disease includes older adults and those who have certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, overweight or obesity, and heart conditions. Members of the household who are unvaccinated include: any persons who have not completed vaccination, who cannot be vaccinated, and those who are not eligible for vaccines, including children less than 12 years of age.


You are requested not to attend if you have: recently experienced any Covid-related symptoms, such as fever, cough, congestion, headaches, or trouble breathing;  have recently been in close contact with someone that has recently tested positive for Covid-19 or experienced Covid-related symptoms; or have recently tested positive for Covid-19.
