Washington County Fair Covid Statement

Here is a statement released by the Washington County Senior Fair Show Committee:

There have been lots of questions from exhibitors that have been quarantined due to Covid exposure or could be quarantined before or during county fair. Here is the procedure if an exhibitor has been placed under quarantine:

  • The quarantined exhibitor will wear a mask the entire time while at the fair and be permitted to only show and sell their animal. All other daily animal care, feeding and show preparation must be taken care of by others. The exhibitor will only be allowed on the fairground for the duration of their show and must socially distance out of respect for other fairgoers and exhibitors.

If an exhibitor tests positive for Covid they will need to apply for a special exemption through the Washington County Senior Fairboard. This exemption will allow for another Jr Fair exhibitor to show their animal project. Documentation will be required indicating an exhibitor has tested positive for Covid. Any exhibitor that has tested positive for Covid should not be on the fairgrounds.
