Covid Protocol for 2021
We are always looking to create the best possible experience for everyone at the Festival.
In order to do that right now this is what we are doing:
- Requiring Proof of Vaccination or Negative COVID Test dated within the last 72 hours prior to entry, for everyone from ages 13+. We are recommending that kids under 12 wear a mask in crowded areas.
- Strongly encouraging face masks or coverings in crowded areas.
- Requiring all staff, volunteers and Bands to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test.
- Requiring all staff and volunteers wear a mask when performing duties that involve interaction with the patrons, staff or artists.
- Following CDC and Virginia state recommendations for public events. Pack a mask and other PPE for your personal use.
By implementing these regulations we hope to provide the safest space we can while knowing that nothing is perfect. Our bands are asking for these Protocols and we support them. We realize that this is not the ideal situation for some and we appreciate your cooperation in helping to keep our Watermelon Pickers’ Fest Family healthy and safe while also helping the musicians continue to work. We hope we never have to do it this way again, but for this year please come prepared for these health and safety measures.
