Texas State Fair organizers are reminding fairgoers to bring a mask “for yourself and everyone in your party” when attending this year’s State Fair of Texas as they will be required to wear in certain areas of the park.
Organizers said masks will be required for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people indoors as Dallas County currently orders “required use of a face mask in certain public space.” Masks will also be required outdoors in crowded settings, “especially if you are not vaccinated.” Some independent vendor booth may require everyone in their booth to wear a mask.
“During these times, we acknowledge that no event can be completely risk-free, and we’re counting on you to do your part to help us present as safe of an event as we can by following the health guidance,” organizers said.
Fairgoers will not be asked to prove COVID-19 vaccination status, nor will the organization require a negative COVID-19 test. The organization however seeks fairgoers to be mindful of social distancing practices, use hand sanitizer and “stay home if you’re not feeling well or you’ve had close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
“Most of all, please respect your fellow fairgoers. We’re all in this together,” organizers said. “And please remember that some operators may be short-staffed due to labor shortages. Please practice patience and be kind to those who showed up to work and serve you at the great State Fair of Texas.”
