The board members of the NCRCHA are sensitive to and constantly monitoring the progress of COVID-19 in the US. After meeting and evaluating the timeline of self-quarantine and the absence of a verified presence in Tehama county, we do not feel that we must cancel this show.
There is no denying we are in some trying times right now. We take the spreading of the disease seriously and we have also followed the guidelines set by the CDC (Center of Disease Control) and the State of California. Fortunately, the April 18th date falls just out of the 30-day safe space suggested guideline. As equestrians and ranchers most of us live a self-quarantined lifestyle and hopefully we have not had contact with a contaminated person from another state.
We will be altering our food service for this one show and ask participants to bring lunch or snacks from home so that we don’t risk contamination from an outside food vendor. We will continue to provide beverages in sealed containers.
While your health and safety are important to all of us, we feel as though we can provide a safe environment to enjoy the outdoors and our horses. We are hopeful in the coming weeks the medical community will gain knowledge on how to effectively address this viral outbreak. We will continue to monitor the situation and will notify everyone should we need to postpone the show.
Hope to see you in April!
