…it can happen to anyone!
Over the past few weeks, we have had multiple instances where the family member of a 4-Her has been diagnosed with COVID, resulting in the 4-H member missing participation in judging, meetings, or Ohio State Fair competition. As the Hartford Fair draws near, we want to encourage all families to do their very best to limit exposure in any way that they can. Our goal is always to have all members enjoy a successful experience at the Hartford Fair. However, if the member or a family member is diagnosed or experiencing symptoms, they will need to follow appropriate quarantine guidelines, and the member may very well miss out on their fair experience this year. It may seem as though everything is back to normal, but we are still seeing members of our community diagnosed with COVID. Please remember to protect yourself, wash hands regularly, get tested when you experience symptoms, and be mindful of the health of others around you. We are stronger when we look out for one another – and the fair is a perfect example of that! We look forward to seeing all of you at the 2021 Hartford Fair!
Individuals and/or family members are not permitted to attend if they or anyone living in their household is experiencing any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, loss of sense of taste or smell, or has been directly exposed (confirmed or suspected) to COVID-19 if they are not fully vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccinations are our best current protection against infection and a fatal outcome. Fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a face mask; however we strongly recommend eligible, but unvaccinated individuals to continue to properly wear a face mask when social distancing cannot be maintained.
