What you need to know for Livestock Validation/Tag-In

  • Events that bring together people and animals, such as fairs and livestock shows, can increase the spread of COVID-19 among people and animals.
  • The risk of animal-to-person spread is considered to be low.
  • Use facilities that provide adequate ventilation for animals and people.
  • Practice social distancing, limit interactions and maintain a distance of at least 6 feet between people, including fair staff, committee volunteers, judges, and the public who are not from the same farm or household.
  • Provide physical guides, such as signs to ensure that individuals remain at least 6 feet apart in lines and guides for creating one-way routes.
  • Timely exit the fairgrounds once exhibitor has validated animal and signed all paperwork.
  • Limit validation participants/guests to fair committee, classifier, exhibitor, parent/guardian, 4H Leaders and FFA Advisors

 

Masks –

Wear masks for visitors, exhibitors, judges, and fair committee, especially where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

Encourage hand hygiene by setting up hand hygiene stations at the entrance and exit of the validation signature area for fair staff and visitors to clean their hands.

Stay Home if Sick –

Advise anyone visiting the event, including exhibitors, visitors, judges, and veterinarians, to stay home if they are sick.
