What precautions are you taking for COVID 19?
We are workIng with Calveras County and the CDC's guidelines on gatherings to assure a safe & fun environment for our event in September. We will be providing hand-washing stations and extra porto-potties. Every attendee will be educated when they arrive with information regarding safe practices and posted signage for effective ways to keep a safe distance while still enjoying our event. We will all need to work together to ensure we are staying safe and healthy. Here are the ways we are prepared for providing a safe environment for our festival goers:
Staying Home when Appropriate
- Educate staff and attendees about when they should stay home.
- Advise employees and attendees to stay home if they have tested positive for COVID-19 or are showing COVID-19 symptoms.
Hand Hygiene and Respiratory Etiquette
- Require frequent employee handwashing (e.g., before, during, and after taking tickets; after touching garbage) with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and increase monitoring to ensure adherence.
- If soap and water are not readily available, employees can use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and rub their hands until dry.
- Encourage staff to cover the mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing and sneezing. Used tissues should be thrown in the trash and hands washed immediately with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Encourage attendees to wash hands often and cover coughs and sneezes.
- Attendees often exchange handshakes, fist bumps, and high-fives at meetings and sporting events. Display signs (physical and/or electronic) that discourage these actions during the event.
Cloth Face Coverings
- Require the use of cloth face coverings among staff. Cloth face coverings are most essential in times when physical distancing is difficult (e.g., when moving within a crowd or audience).
- Provide all staff with information on proper use, removal, and washing of cloth face coverings.
- Advise staff that cloth face coverings should not be placed on:
- Babies or children younger than 2 years old
- Anyone who has trouble breathing
- Anyone who is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the cloth face covering without assistance
Ensure adequate supplies to support healthy hygiene behaviors. Supplies include soap, water, hand sanitizer containing at least 60 percent alcohol, paper towels, tissues, disinfectant wipes, cloth face coverings (as feasible), and no-touch trash cans.
Signs and Messages
- Post signs in highly visible locations (e.g., at entrances, in restrooms) that promote everyday protective measures and describe how to stop the spread of germs by properly washing hands and properly wearing a cloth face covering.
Designated COVID-19 Point of Contact
- We will have a sole contact responsible for responding to COVID-19 concerns. All staff and attendees should know who this person or office is and how to contact them.
