Arrival and Vet Check
Vet check will be held in Lot W. At this point, all exhibitors will be temperature checked and exhibitors will be required to turn in a COVID-19 Waiver Form with contact tracing information for every person attending from their farm. This form must be turned in before animals are vet checked.
Temperature checks will be performed in the manner suggested by CDC. Individuals, traveling companions and their herd will be turned back from check in and not allowed to participate if anyone from their group temps above CDC guidelines which is currently 100.4. It will be recommended that they seek advice from a medical professional.
Once the waiver and contact tracing forms are turned in and verified, every exhibitor will receive a colored wristband. This colored wristband will get exhibitor into the barn once vet check is completed. No one will be allowed in barn without a wristband. This wristband must stay on all week and will be monitored by the KEC staff.
Once animals have cleared vet check, exhibitors will proceed to the West Wing/Pavilion (stalling location will be indicated on the vet check card) and unload. To avoid unnecessary contact at unloading locations, exhibitors should take no more than 45 minutes to unload animals after which time they will be asked to move their truck and trailer to allow other exhibitors to unload animals from hot trailers.
Exhibitors are not limited on unload time for tack and feed once they have moved their trailers to accommodate other exhibitors. Exhibitors should stay in vehicles while waiting to unload.
Parking passes will be distributed at check in. Exhibitors will need to explain that they are attending the ADGA National Show and have not yet obtained their parking pass. One pass will be given to each herd unit attending. Additional parking passes available for purchase at check in. KEC parking staff will be instructed that anyone not wearing a wristband will not be allowed through the gates.
Vet Check Traffic Flow Map
Registration paper check-in will be spread out in different offices in the area adjacent to the West Wing/Pavilion. Exhibitors must maintain six-foot spacing. Volunteers will wear masks and plastic shields may be set up for each volunteer. Gloves and sanitizer will be provided to volunteers to minimize danger of contact with registration papers. Check-in will require numerous volunteers and social distancing will be key to accomplishing a safe check in.
All exhibitors must wear the correct colored wristband when inside in the building. Any exhibitor staying in barns overnight will receive a different color wristband. Exhibitors MUST indicate on their entry form if they plan to stay in the barn overnight and how many in their group will be staying. Stalling will be assigned to facilitate social distancing for those herds staying overnight in the barn. KEC Staff will be monitor the barn overnight.
