Health officials recommend wearing masks for the Nevada County Fair
Joint Statement on the 2021 Nevada County Fair
The annual Nevada County Fair is the signature event of the year, bringing together a cross section of our community to celebrate the end of summer. While the Fair will go on this year, we recognize that our community is currently experiencing a dangerous surge of COVID-19 infections, fueled by the highly contagious Delta variant.
To protect the health and safety of our community, the Nevada County Fair, the Nevada County Public Health Department, Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, and health leaders from across the community strongly recommend that all who attend the Fair wear a mask both indoors and outdoors, regardless of vaccination status.
Furthermore, we strongly recommend that anyone age 65 and over, those with compromised immune systems, and those with underlying health conditions consider not attending the Fair this year.
Anyone who is in isolation due to a positive COVID-19 test or is in quarantine due to an exposure to someone who has tested positive must not attend the Fair.
The Nevada County Fair has taken extraordinary measures to protect the health of all fairgoers. We ask that exhibitors, vendors, and visitors do their part to prevent further COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths during this unprecedented time.
