2021 Covid Safety Plan

3-Cs for FloydFest 21~Odyssey

*These protocols, precautions and new systems, which make up our Covid Safety Plan, will continually evolve and be updated over the next few months. The safety, health and wellbeing of our patrons, artists, staff, volunteers, vendors, and partners have always been a cornerstone of our brand, so we are taking this very seriously. 

  1. Capacity Reduction for FloydFest 21~Odyssey (July 21-25, 2021)
    Although great strides have been made in the fight against Covid-19 — and government restrictions are beginning to be lifted — we have chosen to be proactive to ensure FloydFest is a sanctuary of safety, health and wellbeing for our patrons, artists, staff, volunteers, vendors, and partners, by voluntarily reducing the amount of tickets sold for FloydFest 21~Odyssey. This reduction in capacity has already taken place, and it was applied across the board to each of our ticket types, as to ensure the event is safer for all, no matter what day, or day(s), they plan to attend.
  2. Covid Protocols & Precautions for FloydFest 21~Odyssey (July 21-25, 2021)
    • Temperature checks, infrared scanning, backpack-sprayer sanitization…
      PREVENT, AtWP’s new partner, will be handling infrared scanning and temperature checks at our three main box offices, both onsite and offsite. What’s more, PREVENT’s backpack sprayers will be utilized to sanitize all necessary surfaces onsite, from porto-johns to tables to chairs — all surfaces that patrons will touch. Volunteer positions are being added to handle these new onsite systems.
    • Clear, concise, visible information dissemination onsite…
      Via a new partnership with Virginia811, we will have a large LED display truck parked at our front entrance gate, which will detail Covid protocols and precautions, social-distancing guidelines, mask protocol, and other important information for patrons, artists, staff, volunteers, vendors, and partners.
    • Continuing education, communication, collaboration…
      We are regularly seeking advice from and collaborating with local authorities and public health officials to implement current Covid restrictions and recommendations, and we are cataloging these changes on this new Covid webpage: FloydFest.com/Covid
    • Guidance from the World Health Organization…
      We are providing resources that detail the signs and symptoms of Covid to help educate patrons and staff on whether they should attend or stay home.
      We are also requiring staff and patrons to stay home if they have any Covid symptoms, including fever, cough or gastro-intestinal issues. Additionally, requiring attendees to not attend the event if they have been diagnosed with Covid, or had direct contact with an individual diagnosed with or suspected to have Covid in the past 14 days.
    • Ample hand-washing stations…
      We are providing access to ample hand-washing stations with soap and water or hand sanitizer, and we are providing instructions on proper handwashing at hand-washing stations.
    • Medical response plan…
      We have a medical response plan, designating responsible persons, nearby emergency services, and determining how to isolate and transport staff or patrons experiencing a medical emergency.
    • Alcohol sales…
      We are adhering to Virginia ABC mandates for when alcohol can and cannot be served.
    • Changes to VIP and Staff catering services…
      We are implementing changes to VIP and Staff Catering services, to mitigate chances of cross-contamination via users.
    • Social distancing for artists…
      Per current government mandates, musicians will be separated from patrons by 10 feet or more while performing. Also, for safety reasons and by artist request, stage seating will no longer be available on our Dreaming Creek Main Stage.
