The health and safety of our participants, volunteers and attendees is a top priority — our goal is for everyone to feel safe and comfortable while at Pride. Our team is in regular contact with city officials and other agencies to ensure our protocols address all local and CDC policies.
At the time of this update we cannot predict exactly what our health and safety protocols will be, however if current guidelines persist these may include:
- Face masks in certain areas
- Social distancing
- Temperature checks for volunteers and vendors
- Enhanced sanitation
- Limiting capacity for the festival and/or specific elements of the festival
In the event a determination is made that Come Out With Pride cannot be held safely in person, we will announce alternative plans at a later date.
Your Personal Safety
While Come Out With Pride will be enacting measures to reduce the risk of COVID transmission, we cannot guarantee that the risk is zero. All attendees and participants knowingly and freely assume all such risks related to illness and infectious diseases such as COVID-19, even if arising from the negligence or fault of Come Out With Pride.
It is strongly recommended that all eligible individuals are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 prior to attending any of this year’s in-person events.
We recognize that vaccination may not be possible for everyone, including:
- People with pre-existing medical conditions such as certain allergies
- People with autoimmune conditions or who are immunocompromised
- Children under the age of 16
If you have questions about your medical status, consult with your doctor prior to vaccination.
If you feel that you or others in your group are at a higher risk of contracting and/or spreading COVID-19, we ask you to please stay home. This includes people who are experiencing COVID or COVID-like symptoms.
We hope to announce some virtual events for those who cannot attend in person at a later date. Of course there will also be many more Come Out With Pride festivals in the future for anyone who cannot join us this October!
We will update this page as new information becomes available.
