April 3, 2020

In a proactive effort to prevent the potential for spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the Adams County Fairgrounds in Hastings, Nebraska will prohibit overnight camping starting Monday, April 6, 2020 through Monday, May 11, 2020, with a possible extension.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services recommends travelers coming to Nebraska or back to Nebraska from out-of-state should limit public interactions, practice strict social distancing, self-monitor for symptoms, and self-quarantine for 14 days, if feasible.

Campground restrooms have remained closed from the winter and will remain closed down to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The closures are in keeping with national recommendations from the CDC; cities and states across the nation are taking similar proactive measures to prevent the spread of the virus. The Adams County Fairgrounds top priority is the health and well-being of the public and its staff.

The camping closure will be reevaluated in the future to determine if an extension is necessary.

The public should follow CDC guidelines. They include staying home for people who are sick, have knowingly been exposed to a sick individual or are coming from any area of community spread of the virus. People also should avoid crowds, adhere to the 10-person-limit guideline, and bring supplies from home, including food and hygiene products, disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizer.

Best Regards,
