COVID-19 HEALTH & SAFETY PROTOCOL
Sweetest Chefs’s first priority is the safety and health of our attendees, sponsors, entertainers, production crew, volunteers, and staff. We are working closely with our venue and local officials to ensure that the Sweetest Chefs in September will be a fun and entertaining experience that is safe for everyone. As such, all attendees will be required to abide by our COVID-19 Protocol, which may include any or all of the following measures: liability waivers, face coverings, social distancing, non-invasive temperature checks, testing, written or verbal health status attestation or proof of vaccination. Sweetest Chefs reserves the right to modify and add requirements at its sole discretion. Cooperation with published health and safety protocols on-site will be required to enter and participate in the event.
All attendees, sponsors, entertainers, production crew and volunteers will be required to complete a written or verbal health status attestation during the 2 calendar days prior to the event or upon arrival at the event. Entrance and/or participation in the event in any capacity waives all liability.
Hand sanitizer stations will be provided at entrances, inside portable restrooms, vendor stations, and other well‐marked and lit locations to encourage frequent use.
All public space and facilities will be sanitized regularly, and employees are required to frequently wash their hands. We ask that any guests or staff who feel unwell or have recently been in close contact with a person with COVID-19 to stay home.
