The Umatilla County Fair Board, anticipating the governor ordering a return to Phase 1 pandemic status, will not require market livestock exhibitors to enter the fairgrounds to sell their animals.
Fair officials said that if Gov. Kate Brown sends the state back to Phase 1 status, state 4-H and FFA guidelines would require them to withdraw from any onsite activities. The fair board made its decision with the fair less than two weeks away.
Today, the fair board posted new protocols for market livestock exhibitors. For detailed information, visit the fair website.
