Mill Creek Central
Large Engine Meet
Covid -19 Reminder
This is for those who may be planning on attending Mill Creek Central's Large Engine Meet. Before choosing to attend we strongly encourage that you read this in its entirety.
As I’m sure you are all aware these are interesting and difficult times, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun! But in doing so we must be cognizant that there is a virus that is spreading throughout the land and that we must be diligent to try to minimize its spread. As the CDC has stated, “In general, the more people you interact with, the more closely you interact with them, and the longer that interaction, the higher your risk of getting and spreading COVID-19. Indoor spaces are more risky than outdoor spaces…”. So as we gather next week with family and friends the Mill Creek Central Crew would like to remind and recommend to you some things you can do to minimize the risk of spreading this virus.
1: If you are now in any way ill, have a fever, have been ill any time after the 20th of July, have been exposed since the 20th of July to anyone who is or was known to be ill, been exposed to the virus yourself or believe for any reason that you are at an elevated risk of carrying the virus, please do not attend. WE REALLY HATE TO HAVE TO SAY THIS BUT FOR EVERYONE’S SAFETY THIS YEAR WE MUST.
2: Maintain appropriate social distance whenever possible. Doing this is one of the best ways to minimize the spread. Being outside on 34 acres will help this and being diligent about proper distancing will help accomplish this goal.
3: When in close quarters with others you should properly utilize a mask. That being said, Mill Creek Central will not be “policing” the premises and we ask that everyone take whatever precautions they deem necessary to protect themselves and others. We also ask that you do not “police” others as well nor should you discourage, chastise, or make fun of others who may be using a mask as well or practicing social distancing to protect themselves. I understand there are strong opinions on this issue but in the spirit of having fun we ask that you keep your opinions to yourselves. So, recognize that there may be a considerable number of individuals who choose to not wear a mask so please take that into consideration before choosing to attend.
“CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people who don’t live in their household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.”
4: Wash your hands frequently and clean off surfaces before and after your use. We will attempt to supply the appropriate soap but please assume that there may not be an adequate supply and bring your own sanitary materials (not talking about toilet paper😊).
Last, but not least, recognize that anyone choosing to attend this meet and/or bringing under age family members or other minor children to this year’s Large Engine Meet is taking full, complete and undeniable responsibility for their choice in doing so and should anyone, during or after the meet, become infected with the virus, that they understand that the choice to attend and/or bring others is yours as are the risks of doing so. Dick McCloy, Mill Creek Central and the volunteers are in no way liable should you or anyone at the event contract this virus. If you find this document in any way unacceptable please do not attend.
To end on a lighter note, Dick and the crew at Mill Creek Central truly hope to see you at this year’s meet and we look forward to hosting those that still plan to attend.
