When it comes to extra safety precautions at Husker Harvest Days in the wake of COVID-19, Matt Jungmann, Farm Progress national events director, says much of the change happens behind the scenes with increased sanitation services.
“We have people that are going to come to the show who are bound and determined not to let COVID change their life whatsoever. And they should be able to experience a show like that,” Jungmann says. “And then we’ll have people that are going to want to maintain a little distance and change their behavior a little bit. And we’re sensitive to that.
“So, we’re going to have some areas for them to stretch out and get away from the crowd a little bit. For the most part, it should be a fairly normal experience at Husker Harvest Days.”
For those coming to the show, Sept. 14-16, in Grand Island, they can count on these safety precautions:
Hand sanitizer stations. Jungmann says the show site will increase the amount of hand-sanitizing stations throughout the grounds.
Face mask availability. Face makes are not required for entry or while inside Husker Harvest Days show grounds. Jungmann says individuals are free to make a choice to wear a mask.
This year’s return to normal for Husker Harvest Days is what Jungmann deems “a celebration.”
“We’ve made it through a year being separated,” he says. “Now is a time to come together as an agriculture family — like a bit of a family reunion, just hanging out kicking tires and talking equipment.”
