Hall Fair Announces Safety Measures Staff Report • No concessions will be available this year. It will be very hot, so you are encour- aged to bring cold drinks with you. • Indoor exhibits are for children through high school only. No adult entries will be accepted. • I n d o o r e n t r i e s a re limited to five per child. Those entering in the 4H section are not subject to the five-entry limit. • You may choose to stall at your trailer rather than in the barn. You need to let your superintendent know if this is your plan. • A certificate of veter- inary inspection must be shown to your superinten- dent before unloading. • Face masks are required in the livestock barn and the indoor exhibit building. • There will be hand- washing stations and hand sanitizer throughout the barn. Organizers ask that participants and attendees use them often and practice social distancing. "We understand things are very different and not ideal this year, however, we are happy to still offer the opportunity for our kids to exhibit the projects they have worked so hard to prepare for the fair," officials said. "Thank you all for your patience and understand- ing." MORNING NEWS UPDATE GET YOUR Newsletter! PICK ONE OR PICK ALL... IT'S FREE! SIGN UP TODAY MIDDAY NEWS UPDATE BREAKING NEWS MANY TO CHOOSE FROM!
