We are so excited to offer a fun festival this weekend, and we know that ensuring safety is an important part of making this a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
While the CDC currently says the risk of transmission in outdoor settings is minimal, and Maine has lifted capacity limits and physical distancing requirements for public indoor and outdoor gatherings, we want to cover all our bases.
There are many ways to reduce the risks of catching or spreading the COVID virus including being outdoors, keeping physical distance, washing hands, being vaccinated, and wearing facial coverings. Here is how we are minimizing COVID risks for River Jam attendees and volunteers as well as the greater Biddeford community.
When to Stay Home
All volunteers and attendees should plan to stay home if you have any COVID symptoms. We appreciate you staying home and making things safer for others until you know for sure you don’t have this virus.
Anyone is welcome to wear face coverings at River Jam. No one will be required to wear one. Some may choose to wear a face covering to protect immunocompromised family members.
Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the park, and we’ll post reminders to sanitize.
We urge attendees and volunteers to avoid close contact for prolonged periods. We will limit the number of attendees in the beer garden on Saturday to enable a little more distancing.
York County Emergency Management is bringing their mobile vaccination unit on site for any people who have been considering vaccination but hadn’t had the chance yet. Obviously no pressure, but if you’d like to get your vax while you listen to music and relax, then locate the mobile vax unit between Noon-8 p.m.
We welcome YOU and can’t wait to celebrate life on the Saco River during these most interesting and challenging times!
