JOINT AGENCY STATEMENT
The annual Siskiyou Golden Fair is the signature event of the year, bringing together a cross section of our community to celebrate the end of summer. While the Fair will go on this year, we recognize that our community is currently experiencing a dangerous surge of COVID-19 infections, fueled by the highly contagious Delta variant.
To protect the health and safety of our community, the Siskiyou Golden Fair, the Siskiyou County Public Health Department, Fairchild Medical Center, and health leaders from across the community strongly recommend that all who attend the Fair wear a mask both indoors and outdoors, regardless of vaccination status.
Furthermore, we strongly recommend that anyone age 65 and over, those with compromised immune systems, and those with underlying health conditions consider not attending the Fair this year.
Anyone who is in isolation due to a positive COVID-19 test or is in quarantine due to an exposure to someone who has tested positive must not attend the Fair.
The Siskiyou Golden Fair has taken extraordinary measures to protect the health of all fairgoers. We ask that exhibitors, vendors, and visitors do their part to prevent further COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations, and deaths during this unprecedented time.
