Social Distancing Requirements:
Due to the ongoing Covid19 pandemic, all exhibitors must review and agree to the following social distancing requirements:
TBD whether public will be allowed access.
Anyone with a temperature of 100 F or above, and those traveling with them, will not be allowed in the showhall. You will also need to certify that you have not had symptoms nor have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 within the prior 10 days. Your temperature will be taken at the door and you will need to fill in your certification EACH DAY so plan extra time at check-in. You will not be allowed in the showhall prior to check-in hours.
Everyone must properly wear a mask according to CDC guidelines (must cover nose, mouth, and chin) while in the showhall unless actively eating/drinking and in a seated location (benching area, ring, or other designated area). You may also remove your mask when seated at your benching area. In other words, “Stand up – mask up!” Anyone not wearing their mask correctly will be reminded of the requirement and those continuing to not wear a mask correctly will be asked to leave the showhall. Masks WILL NOT be provided by the club. Please bring your own mask that meets the requirements. Face shields cannot be used without a mask.
A social distancing space will be left between exhibitor’s benching spaces. This space is to be left open and cannot be used for grooming or other uses. If you are coming with a group of friends, and do not require social distancing spaces between members of your group, please communicate the names of your group members to the entry clerk.
If you require additional physical space for people or things, the club strongly encourages you to purchase a grooming space. For example, if you enter 2 cats, benched in one double cage, and you have two exhibitors and a stroller, large grooming table, etc. you might need more physical space than the 44” space allotted to you. Since grooming spaces might be limited, we suggest entering early if you think you will need additional space. For social distancing, your party and gear must remain within your designated benching area unless mutually agreed upon by all affected parties.
