Summer Event COVID-19 Policy

PFI’s Safety Protocols for In-Person Events

(Updated June 10, 2021)

We understand the tide of the pandemic is turning, but while COVID-19 is still around and we navigate the increased transmission risk of the delta variant, we need to continue some measures to ensure everyone’s safety. At PFI’s public field days, we expect staff, hosts and attendees to comply with the following safety protocols until further notice.

Outdoor events:

Attendees who are not fully vaccinated should continue to maintain 6 feet of distance from other attendees (except those in their household). Masks are not required for any person in an outdoor setting.

If emergency weather conditions require field day attendees to move indoors, masks are required for all persons and 6 feet of distance is encouraged between attendees from different households.

Individuals should not attend an in-person event if they, or someone in their household, are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or have had a known exposure to COVID-19 in the previous 7 days.

To further minimize risk and improve safety at in-person events, we are taking several other precautions, including:

  • Making additional cloth and disposable masks available at all events
  • Providing hand sanitizer at all events
  • Postponing an event if the host, or anyone in their household, suspects (or confirms through testing) that they have COVID-19 within two weeks of the event.

As the COVID-19 pandemic situation continues to evolve, we will regularly evaluate our in-person event protocols and update them as needed. For updated information, visit practicalfarmers.org/events/field-days or call the PFI office at (515) 232-5661.
