COVID-19 Update      

The 2020 Georgia Junior Beef Futurity will only be open to Georgia 4-H & FFA members. Futurity entries are due June 22nd, but no payments will be processed until after July 1st, to help in the event of cancellation. Please review the following documents from the Georgia National Fairgrounds in terms of safety guidelines relating to COVID.  Please help us continue to offer youth livestock events by adhering to these safety guidelines during the COVID pandemic.  

Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter Update:
Please view the following information provided by Philip Gentry, Youth Director at the Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter:

  1. The Georgia National Fairgrounds & Agricenter COVID-19 Guidelines and Rulebook (attached) was prepared following CDC guidelines and the most current information from the Governors Executive orders.
  2. The guideline has been reviewed and approved by Govenor Kemp’s office.
  3. Masks are encouraged, but not required.
  4. The Georgia Junior Beef Futurity is considered a “Private” event and not open to the general public. Entry on grounds will require “credentials”.
  5. Each individual that enters the grounds will have to complete the COVID-19 waiver (attached) that is located at the back of the Guidelines. This waiver will be turned in at the security building to GNFA.  Upon receiving a signed waiver, individuals will receive an wristband that will be good for the duration of the show.  This wrist band must remain on for the duration of the show.  If it is removed or lost, a new waiver will have to be completed and placed on file.
  6. An event roster with Name, address, and phone number of each individual that enters the grounds will be kept for the duration of the show. This roster will be located at the security guard shack.
  7. *To expedite arrival, please have your GNFA COVID-19 Waiver Form(s) completed for all those that are attending (including exhibitors, family members and guests).

In addition to the measures outlined in the guideline, GNFA will be taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of employees and guests alike. GNFA staff will wear face coverings and other PPE when interacting with the public. GNFA will also be screening all employees for COVID symptoms daily. GNFA will also disinfect public areas daily with EPA approved sanitizers. Hand sanitizing stations will be readily available.

This guideline is a living document and will be updated as we are given information on this situation based upon the recommendations from the Governor’s Office and state and local health officials.

Please let us know if you have any questions and we will keep you updated on information as it is made available.
