We will protect the safety of event staff/volunteers, vendors, and attendees by implementing the following measures prior to the festival, during the event, and while dismantling:
Training sessions will be conducted via Zoom prior to the event for event staff/volunteers and vendors to discuss expectations and what measures will be taken to ensure safety during the event including set up and break down. Training sessions will be led by the President of Scoop San Diego, a Registered Nurse.
Providing written guidelines for safety through promotional materials on social media and in print prior to the festival to be proactive in setting expectations for a safe event for all.
Requiring face masks to be worn properly and assigning dedicated event staff to monitor this.
Requiring frequent hand washing/use of hand sanitizer. A hand washing station and extra hand sanitizer will be available for event staff/volunteers at the event.
Mandatory use of gloves by vendors when serving attendees in their cars. Extra gloves will be provided by the event organizer if needed.
Instructing and enforcing event staff, volunteers and vendors to maintain at least six feet distance from each other (except momentarily when samples are provided to attendees inside their vehicles).
Instructing event staff/volunteers and vendors to not shake hands or engage in any unnecessary physical contact.
Screening for symptoms of COVID-19 (cough, shortness of breath or trouble breathing, headache, fever, chills, muscle or body aches, fatigue, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, new loss of taste or smell, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, exposure to individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19). If it is noticed that any event staff/volunteer, vendor or attendee on site is displaying these symptoms they will be required to leave the event immediately.
Performing temperature checks of event staff/volunteers during set up. Anyone with a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher will not be allowed to remain at the event.
Providing clear signage at the entrance to the event and throughout to inform all event staff/ volunteers and vendors that they should avoid entering the festival if they have a cough or fever; wear facial coverings; maintain a minimum six-foot distance from one another; and not shake hands or engage in any unnecessary physical contact.
Placing clear markings where vendor tents should be placed and spacing them far enough apart to avoid close contact with one another.
Providing colored wristbands for event staff/volunteers as well as vendors so these individuals can easily be identified before, during and after the event.
Enforcing the policy that no attendees will be allowed to leave their vehicle or park within the event unless to use the restroom or in case of an emergency.
