We are counting on you, our 4-H members and families, as well as our staff and volunteers to help make this fair season a safe and successful one!
The following COVID-19 social distancing and safety practices reflect requirements of the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) and University of Illinois event guidelines and will be in place for all indoor and outdoor 4-H events, including fairs and exhibitions:
Events with fewer than 200 attendees: Face coverings are required for all youth, spectators, volunteers, and staff in any indoor space. Anyone who has experienced COVID-19 symptoms within the previous five days is asked to stay at home. Illinois 4-H will respond to and adjust events in response to evolving guidance as provided by the CDC, IDPH, and University of Illinois. Additional local venue guidelines will be followed.
If any of these guidelines presents a challenge for you, please contact us directly at 618-327-8881. We are happy to discuss what accommodations are possible so that we can look for ways that all youth and families can safely participate in this event.
