COVID - SAFETY PLAN
Blue Sky Event Services is planning to create a SAFE festival. We are not sure what state our state will be in by mid-June, but we are ready. Governor Newsome has stated that the State of California will be open come June 15th... Time will tell, and we are hoping for the best and planning for the worst.
Consulting with the Butte County Environmental Health Department and the CDC for safety protocals, our Safety Plan including Pre-Show, During Festival, and Post-Show safety measures can maximize our success. We believe that we can host a live event with the comfort of knowing we are all safe.
The Chico SummerFest is an Outdoor Event, but please remember if you are feeling sick in any way, please stay home and help stop the spread of Covid.
Depending on the "State of the Nation" and "California", Social Distancing is encouraged. COVID-19 sanitation will be practiced at this event with Hand Sanitizers and 6' Distance requests. If we move back to the Purple Tier, we will ask guests to Wear Masks and undergo a Temperature Check at entry.
In addition, we have been in contact with CLEARED4 to be ready if needed to implement their program. We want to make sure we are all safe and protected ...

COVID SAFETY FIRST -
Our world has been paralyzed by the Corona Covid Virus. The year 2020 affected all of us. We at Blue Sky Event Series feel for those families that lost a loved one, businesses that have undergone hardship, children that have lost out on education, social isolation, and every human on Planet Earth that has had any challenges with this virus.
With certain guidelines in place, we feel that we can host a safe and fun festival for all that choose to participate. To help us with the systems, we have partnered with a company called CLEARED4 and we are following all of the Butte Couty Environmental Health and CDC guidelines.
Please review our COVID-19 GENERAL EVENT POLICY AND GUIDELINES
Blue Sky Event Services is committed to providing events that place participant safety as the number one priority. In light of the current COVID-19 situation, every attempt will be made to minimize the risk of exposure to the virus. Therefore, we are implementing new processes and procedures for events going forward.
Blue Sky Event Services Events Will::
Follow state and local guidelines in relation to COVID-19
Require all guests, vendors, entertainers, and staff to wear masks when they are not in their PODs.
Implement a Temperature Check for all Vendors & Guests
These safety measures are not only your own safety but for the safety of everyone on-site
Request all guests to stay at home if they are at higher risk for severe illness, or if they are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms such as fever, cough or shortness of breath
Create POD’s that small groups of Families and/or Friends can reserve and stay in during the festival
Work with Cleared4.com for a comprehensive safety scanning of all vendors, entertainers, and staff
The following guidelines are our best attempt to secure your safety given what is known at this time. They are by no means comprehensive, and we cannot predict every circumstance. Therefore, we are counting on you to exercise your best judgment throughout the event. Please have an awareness and understanding of the following COVID-19 safety protocols:
Blue Sky Event Services asks that anyone who is at risk for severe illness, feeling unwell, or who has been in contact with anyone that is sick in the last 2 weeks to STAY HOME
ALL vendors, entertainers, and staff are required to wear cloth face coverings or masks
Blue Sky Event Services will encourage everyone to wash hands regularly (with soap and water for at least 20 seconds), especially after using the restroom, before eating, and after blowing their nose, coughing, or sneezing
Physical contact is discouraged. Please refrain from shaking hands, high-fives and hugs, except with family or those you have been quarantined with
Participants are required to bring their own personal protective equipment (PPE), including masks, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant.
Guests, Vendors, Entertainers, and Staff will be required to Sign Waivers Electronically
Be cautious when sharing/posting event photos. Even photos of groups maintaining proper social distancing can be mistaken for an inappropriate gathering.
If necessary, remind each other gently and respectfully to observe these guidelines
Anyone who continually or willfully violates these guidelines will be asked to leave by the event director or other Blue Sky Event Services leader.
Any participant that falls ill within 2 weeks after the event MUST contact Blue Sky Event Services and share a description of their symptoms, related test results, and movements during the event
Blue Sky Event Services will make every effort to alert affected participants privately of the situation

You assume all risks and agree Blue Sky Event Services holds no liability if you or anyone in your party should develop any Covid-19 symptoms afterwards by attending a Blue Sky Event Services event. Participants are required to follow these guidelines; any participant may be asked to leave the event for non-compliance.

EVENT TECHNOLOGY PARTNER, WRSTBND, TEAMS WITH CLEARED4 TO BRING BACK FESTIVALS & LIVE EVENTS
CLEARED4’s health technology will integrate health verification into the WRSTBND experience; WRSTBND clients include Lollapalooza, ESSENCE Festival, and New Orleans Wine & Food Experience
New York--March 25, 2021--CLEARED4, a scalable, flexible health technology platform, today announced its partnership with WRSTBND, an event technology partner that was born from over a decade of event production experience, to integrate its health verification technology with WRSTBND’s features. CLEARED4’s technology will help to foster safety at live events for staff, vendors, performers, and ticket holders during Covid-19 reopening.
CLEARED4 is a sophisticated software platform that, unlike its competitors, is an app-less technology, allowing integration into partner apps to facilitate Covid-19 symptom monitoring, testing accuracy, and vaccine verification. CLEARED4’s HIPAA-compliant platform was developed in response to the enormous compliance, administration, and financial burdens on organizations and events wanting to reopen and stay open.
Earlier this month, CLEARED4 announced its partnership with both the Los Angeles Angels and New York Yankees. CLEARED4 is the only platform used across all major sports and is now moving into the live event space. CLEARED4 has industry leaders from the live event space and is uniquely qualified to assist venues, festivals, and event promoters to get fans back.
“The live event industry was perhaps one of the hardest hit during the pandemic. Prioritizing and maximizing health and safety procedures will ensure that festivals and other live events will come back stronger, and safer than ever before,” said Dr. Soumi Eachempati, CEO/CMO, CLEARED4. “With some festivals already pushed to 2022, we want to offer our seamless technology to our partners so that as many events as possible can safely stay on the schedule this year.”
WRSTBND’s RFID, ticketing, access control and credentialing platform has served some of the largest events in the country, including Hogs for the Cause, ESSENCE Festival, Lollapalooza, Tales of the Cocktail, Buffalo Trace Distillery, New Orleans Wine & Food Experience, and more. WRSTBND has recently developed Passport, combining the benefits of RFID wristbands and QR codes into a digitally-distributed ticket that is stored in the wallet of smartphones.
“The live event and festival industry are still very much in flux as we evaluate local safety requirements and the changing nature of Covid reopening for each event,” said Conway Solomon, CEO of WRSTBND. “When evaluating technology that will help our partners, and ultimately the fans, CLEARED4 was the obvious choice when it comes to COVID compliance for ease of use, flexibility, and customization.”
CLEARED4 is partnered with more than 100 businesses, schools, venues, travel brands and more to support partners’ employees, students and customers during this delicate phase of the pandemic, including Legends Hospitality at AT&T Stadium, SoFi Stadium, and Circle Line in New York.
The CLEARED4 solution has been designed to offer a long-term, flexible and modular approach to allow venues to control which safety steps to use as the pandemic compliance continues to evolve. Utilizing CLEARED4 indicates that organizations prioritize the health and safety of staff, visitors and fans as reopening progresses.
“CLEARED4’s ability to provide safe turnkey solutions will be integral in getting fans back to festivals and help to bring peace of mind to everyone involved in producing and attending these events,” said Brent Walla, Senior Producer Entertainment Division at Snapp & Associates Insurances Services.
