COVID PROTOCOLS & FAQ’S

2021 Health & Safety Policy

GOVERNOR MURPHY ENDED THE COVID-19 HEALTH EMERGENCY LIFTING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND MASK MANDATES FOR ALL OUTDOOR EVENTS.

As such, there will be no mandate to social distance or wear a mask.  Patrons are always welcome to wear a mask for their comfort.

The health and safety of our guests is our top priority.  We will continue our policy of disinfecting common areas of high touch points such as chairs, benches, tables, etc.  Our restrooms are monitored and sanitized regularly throughout the day by our cleaning crew who will also clean and sanitize employee work areas.

State Fair Meadowlands will continue to follow the recommendations of federal, state, and local officials.
