COVID-19 Safety Plan

The Caledonia Agricultural Society has safety as our top priority as we produce the 149th Caledonia Fair from

September 30th to October 3rd, 2021.

The Society has taken enhanced health and safety measures for our guests and our employees and volunteers. Everyone must follow all posted instructions while visiting the Caledonia Fairgrounds. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Senior citizens and those with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

Proof of Vaccination (Updated September 15, 2021)

Proof of Vaccinations will not be required for entry to the Fair.

Guests 12 years of age or older choosing to enter indoor spaces (including the Exhibition Hall and livestock barns) will be required to provide proof of vaccination by presenting either their original printed vaccine receipt or digital .pdf vaccine receipt which confirms that they have received at-least two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccination at least fourteen days prior to entry. Guests 18 years of age or older must also produce a valid form of photo identification (driver’s license, passport, etc.) for verification. This is a Provincially mandated requirement for entry to non-essential indoor spaces throughout the Province of Ontario. You do not need to provide proof of vaccination to enter washrooms or grandstands. A negative COVID-19 test is not considered proof of vaccination and will not be accepted.

 

A vaccine-check station will be set up near the Main Entrance beside the Kinsmen Hall. After producing sufficient proof of vaccination, guests will be provided with a wristband which will allow them access to indoor spaces on the Fairgrounds. This wristband is good only for one day. Reverification will be required each day of the Fair.

Face Coverings

All guests must demonstrate at the gate that they have an approved face covering which fully covers their nose and mouth. Face coverings must be worn in any indoor facility including washrooms, barns, and the Exhibition Hall. Face coverings must also be worn in grandstands and seating areas, and anywhere where 6 feet of physical distance between people from other households is not possible.

Physical Distancing

All guests must maintain a distance of at least six-feet (2 metres) between themselves and people from other households whenever possible.

Increased Sanitization

Hand sanitizer stations will be available for guests at all washrooms, entrances and exits to buildings, elevators, and throughout the grounds. High-touch surfaces will be sanitized regularly and washrooms will be cleaned frequently to maintain sanitary conditions.
